Signs of Spring in St. Louis

On a cold day near the end of a seriously cold winter, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer got a much needed pick-me-up when these beautiful pictures from Alex Delhounge, a Good Cookie in St. Louis, arrived in our inbox. The bright pink tulips and pretty ribbons adorning a table of homemade cookies did more than simply represent a lovely bake sale held on Saturday, February 21st – they gave us HOPE for a season filled with warm weather, generous people and bake sales on every corner.

Alex and her friends hosted their bake sale from 11am-4pm at a local grocery store. With a goal of $500, they were beyond thrilled to exceed their goal by $22. . .and we were tickled pink as tulips. . .

We hope the pictures from Alex’s bake sale give you hope and inspire you to bake some cookies, set up a table and raise some money for pediatric cancer research. We need sunshine and warmth, flowers in bloom and birds chirping, and we especially need good cookies like Alex and her friends who take a little time to make a big difference in the world of kids’ cancer.

Recently, I received a request for information about Cookies for Kids’ Cancer from a colleague. Her office allows staff to wear jeans on Fridays, provided they pay $5 to wear them. The money raised from the jean-clad employees goes to a different charity each month. Even better, the company does a 50% match, giving each person the opportunity to raise $30 per month for charity ($20 out of pocket; $10 from the company). The colleague wanted to nominate Cookies as one of the monthly charities.

I haven’t heard yet if our cause of raising money to erase pediatric cancer has been selected by her office. Fingers and toes are crossed with hope. This great idea would be yet another way to spread the word and raise some money, too. Remember, every penny counts.

Share your ideas with us. . .we’ll help them grow.
