Be Glad to Give—Host a Holiday Bake Sale or Cookie Exchange

Filed under: corporate fundraising — Tags: — The Good Cookies @ 9:25 am November 28, 2012

Make every cookie count this holiday season thanks to Glad! Glad is giving $1 per cookie sold or swapped, up to $100,000.  Register here to host an event! To host a cookie exchange, simply follow these steps:

1.  Make a guest list and ask each guest to bring four dozen cookies to swap, plus copies of their recipe. Plan for a fun evening with friends by offering hot cider to go along with the cookies.

2. Swap your cookies! At the event, set out all the cookies on one large table. Ask the guests to gather round the table and then, walking clockwise, select one cookie from each plate on the table the first time around, then two cookies from each plate the second time. Keep going until all the cookies are gone. Where should your guests collect their cookies? That’s easy – Gladware.

3.  Count cookies! Before everyone leaves the cookie swap, find out the total number of cookies from each guest. Once you have a number, simply e-mail by December 30th with the tally and watch as you and your friends help increase funding to pediatric cancer research.

And the fun doesn’t end there. To make your cookie swap a fundraiser, simply ask guests to make a donation to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. It’s just another way to give hope this holiday. Then, hop online and send virtual cookies to friends and family through Glad’s Mom Made website and Glad will make another donation to Cookies. Visit their website and send your cookies today! The more cookies you send, the more Glad donates!

Let’s all be Glad to Give this holiday season—Host a Bake Sale or Cookie Exchange and help bring HOPE to children battling pediatric cancer.
