Lad Donates Lifetime Supply of Cookies And Brownies To Homeless Charity After Winning Challenge
What would you do if you somehow managed to win a lifetime supply of brownies and cookies after challenging a random bakery to a viral challenge?
Most people would probably eat. Eat some more. Keep eating. Eat until that bakery ran out of stock and literally had to close down because you'd eaten so many damn brownies and cookies.
That's most people though. It's not Bradley Williams.
When he challenged Bake Mates to a viral challenge for a lifetime supply of sweet snacks, he couldn't have expected things to blow up like they did.
Bradley, 19, from Canterbury, randomly saw Bake Mates come up on his Facebook feed and so dropped them a message seeing if they'd be up for giving him a lifetime supply of cookies and brownies if he managed to get 20,000 likes, 10,000 comments and 5000 shares on his status.
He had two days.
"It was just a bit of fun that went mental," Bradley told TheLADbible. "It was just a joke at first but within 12 hours I'd done it."

And so Bake Mates had pretty much no choice but to comply with the bet. Enough people had shared it that they couldn't really get away with dodging this one.
Admittedly, they haven't even properly opened up for business yet (a business delivering puddings to people throughout the night around Canterbury - you know, replacing the 3am kebab with a 3am brownie), but they were happy to oblige.
Speaking to Bake Mates owner Ed Withers, he told us that Bradley had actually decided to give up his right to the cookies and brownies and instead donate every batch he ever requests to a local homeless charity called Catching Lives.
"He's a good guy and we're going to meet up tomorrow to take them as many brownies as my car can hold," Ed, 29, told us.
"After that, and we actually launch, we'll come up with a proper arrangement to get them [the charity] some more."
Good on you Bradley, and fair play Bake Mates for following through with this gesture and their continuing support.
Sweet stuff all round.
