36 faces (3) (1)

Every day, 36 families will hear the words “your child has cancer”. These four words turn whole worlds upside down. With your help, Cookies For Kids’ Cancer gives hope to children diagnosed by raising funds for research to develop new, less toxic, more effective treatments for the disease that claims the lives of more children than any other. In honor of every child diagnosed, we invite you to join the #36aDay campaign to raise money to fund a new research project.

What is #36aDay?

Never forget – 36 is the number of kids diagnosed with cancer each day in the US. And now with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, #36aday is a campaign that will get you moving while also raising money for research. What does “get moving” mean?

  • Simple: lace up your ASICS sneakers then run, walk, bike, or take a class for at least 36 minutes.

  • Don’t want to lace up? Lie down! Take a yoga or pilates class that’s at least 36 minutes long and dedicate your time to children battling cancer.

  • Like to swim? That counts, too. Jump in, swim laps and make it count for kids by going at least 36 minutes.

Truth: it doesn’t matter what you do, just get moving to honor the 36 children being diagnosed with cancer every single day.

How does #36aDay help kids?

In a word: fundraising. Through Cookies for Kids’ Cancer’s #36aday campaign, you can be a part of a national campaign of people who are on the move to make a difference for kids battling cancer. Join the overall campaign, start your own personal fundraising page, and then inspire your friends, family, neighbors or colleagues to donate in support of your efforts and in honor of kids. What are the next steps?

  • Register to join Cookies for Kids’ Cancer’s #36aday fundraising campaign.

  • Set two goals – first, set a personal goal. Do you want to get moving EVERY day for a month? Or maybe 3 times a week while training for a race? Are you trying to lose weight/get healthy/stay fit? Whatever the reason to get moving, don’t be afraid to name your personal goal and then do it for kids!

  • Second goal – fundraising. The way to help kids is by funding research, so inspire everyone you know to give. The more you raise, the bigger the difference you will make. Want to match dollar for dollar what the Federal Government gives for Phase 1 Clinical Trials? Raise $2,000. Or make your fundraising symbolic – perhaps raising $36 a day for 100 straight days. These are just two ideas – Cookies for Kids’ Cancer is happy to help you set a goal. . .and reach it.

  • Final step: share, share, share. Use your goals to educate your friends about childhood cancer and inspire them to support your goals. Send emails to everyone explaining why you are committed to #36aday, and don’t forget to share how close you are to meeting your goals. Even have fun with your updates – post pictures on social media that show your sneakers laced up, your yoga mat on the floor, or your elliptical timer at the beginning of a 36 minute workout. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer will help you with sample social media posts and reminders to keep going to meet your goals.

Thank You Taste Buds Kitchen

“Ain’t no mountain high enough” was the thought process of one 4-year old baker selling his creations at a bake sale this summer. His selling strategy of shouting this quote at people walking on the street helped Taste Buds Kitchen raise $7,048.56 for childhood cancer research this summer.

Taste Buds is a kid-friendly culinary experience by day and a BYOB Adult Kitchen by night with seven locations around the country. It has been a supporter of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer since 2011 and they have raised $22,893.25 to date for childhood cancer research.

This summer they encouraged the kids in their cooking camps to host bake sales to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer as a part of the cooking camps in New York, NY, in Southlake TX and North Anover, MA.

The students baked chocolate chip cookies, brownies, sugar cookies and oatmeal cookies for the bake sale but some of the older kids had creative control over what to bake. Some whipped up special treats like mint chocolate chip and coconut cardamom.

We want to THANK the Good Cookies at Taste Buds Kitchen for all of the hard work they do to help us end childhood cancer, the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S.

Inspired to host your own bake sale? Head to to find out more!


Cookies for Kids’ Cancer 7th Anniversary: Letter from Gretchen Witt

Filed under: About Cookies for Kids' Cancer,Good Cookies,Team Good Cookies — The Good Cookies @ 8:21 pm September 13, 2015

Gretchen and Fireman

Sunday, September 13th is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Day. Seven years ago this weekend, on 2008’s National Childhood Cancer Awareness Day, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer launched as a national non-profit.  Since that day, nearly 7,000 fundraisers have been held in all 50 states and 18 Countries. And as the support has increased from Good Cookies like you, so have the funds going directly to researchers – from a few hundred thousand dollars given in the first two years, to two million dollars last year alone. How much money has been granted so far? Over $7 million dollars has funded 6 dozen critically needed childhood cancer research projects. From those projects, more than two dozen new therapies have moved from the lab to the bedside. By the end of the year, that number will be cresting a total of $10 million granted. Thanks to you.  
We look back now and time looks so different. For those of us here today, we count the years with memories and milestones. At the exact moment our 2 ½ year old son Liam was diagnosed with childhood cancer in 2007, my husband Larry and I were shocked to learn of the paucity of treatments available to children. When we asked why there weren’t many treatment options, the answer was so simple it was stunning: children’s cancers get the short end of the funding stick for research. So, not enough money equals not enough research which equals not enough treatments. Not enough for our children. Not enough for our future. Not enough for the generation with the most promise in front of them, the most life left to live. As incredulous as we were, we had one job to do: to help Liam fight back this insidious, cowardly disease.
We had no idea that 7 short months after Liam’s diagnosis, we would rally 250 volunteers to bake and sell 96,000 cookies for the first-ever Cookies for Kids’ Cancer cookie sale that would raise over $420,000 for one promising treatment. We also had no idea that less than a year after the ovens cooled from that first massive baking effort we would launch a national non-profit that would inspire so many individuals to Be a Good Cookie. And we certainly had no idea that despite our best efforts, that the life of our wonderful, amazing son would be cut short – a few months shy of his own 7th birthday – due to lack of effective treatments.
At times it has seemed unimaginable to march on, but we have and we must. Not only in honor of Liam and his life, but also in honor of all children and the lives they deserve to live – fully and free from fear of this terrible disease.
As we begin our 8th year, a year Liam never saw, we are more determined than ever to do everything we can to help the 40,000 children who are battling cancer today. We hope you will continue to join us on this journey. Host an eventsend cookies or simply make a donation. Every dollar counts and together, we are making the world better for generations to come.


Love Like Liam. 
Gretchen Witt
Founder, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer

Guest Blogger: Sheila G. Mains Dishes About Her Favorite Bake Sale

Filed under: Bake Sale,Corporate Partnerships,Good Cookies — The Good Cookies @ 9:37 am September 19, 2014


Founder and creator of Brownie Brittle and long-time supporter of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, Sheila G. Mains took a few moments to share her thoughts after Team Brownie Brittle and celebrity Jaime King co-hosted a CFKC bake sale in LA during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Sheila G and company, we are so grateful for your steadfast support!

My Favorite Bake Sale

Sheila and Jaime best picIt’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. If ever there were two words that should NEVER be in the same sentence together, they are “childhood” and “cancer.” And the fact that there is a month dedicated to the awareness of kids and cancer tells you just how far we still have to go. That’s why this blog is dedicated to our unrelenting commitment to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, founded by Gretchen and Larry Witt.

This month, Team Brownie Brittle and I were thrilled to roll up our sleeves to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer with a bake sale in Los Angeles. And we weren’t alone. We were lucky enough to co-host the Bake Sale with celebrity Jaime King.

It was clear fromJaime King the moment I met Jaime King that she felt a huge connection to this cause, even bringing her own toddler son (who is too cute for words) and husband along. Jaime had injured her leg recently while on set filming and was in such pain, but she didn’t let that stop her (in high heels no less – amazing) from giving everything she could to make this a successful event. She is a trooper!

We’re so grateful to have raised thousands of dollars thanks to the generosity of so many. And, yes, I must name those people!

Rachel Krupa, the Krupa Consulting team (Julia, Melissa, etc) and Adam Cohen — you consistently go above and beyond. I watched you giving your all this weekend and was reminded why we’re connected. You made the weekend a huge success. Adam — special thanks to you again as you are the one who first introduced me to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, and I’m eternally grateful for that.

And thanks to Jenna Helton and her boyfriend’s family who worked non-stop at this event. We needed the help and are extremely grateful.

Manouschka Guerrier (an outstanding chef) and her support team outdid themselves! These are students in the Careers in Culinary Arts Program (CCAP, headquartered at Colt’s Kitchen in Carson, CA). Not only were their hearts in the right place, but their cookies were phenomenal. So much dedication and deliciousness came out of this team! Sheila & Gretchen

And I must thank Gretchen and Larry Witt.  Through the loss of your own dear son, Liam, you were put on a path to help save and extend the lives of thousands of children stricken with cancer. You’ve allowed mothers and fathers the opportunity to hold onto their dreams for their own children, keeping them healthier and giving them chances that weren’t possible only a few short years ago. You are angels among us along with Bella and Liam. Love Like Liam and Live Like Bella. And I am personally grateful to be able to create this legacy for my stepson Scott who lost his battle with a latent form of pediatric cancer in 2012. Gretchen, you and Larry are the heart and soul of this organization, and we are thrilled to be your partners on this journey.

You can support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer in a variety of ways, from purchasing products on their site, hosting your own bake sales, attending a bake sale in your area, or by purchasing our products. You will see in our newly redesigned packaging that we prominently display the Cookies for Kids’ Cancer logo on the backs of all of our bags.  Our goal is to raise awareness and dollars with our $100,000 annual commitment to this amazing organization.

I know you are ALL #GoodCookies!

A Good Cookie Partner: generationOn

Filed under: Good Cookies,Inspire — The Good Cookies @ 7:13 am September 12, 2014


Meet our new Good Cookie friends at generationOn! GenerationOn is helping to mobilize more Cookies for Kids’ Cancer supporters by sharing #GoodCookie stories and inspiring a network of 750,000 kids to make a difference in the world through volunteer service. The generationOn team wrote a guest blog post to share their story.

Hi Good Cookies,generationOn

Here at generationOn, we’re so excited to be teaming up with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer to help spread the word about Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September! We love the 50 State Challenge and strongly encourage folks to register a fundraising event!

For those who may not have heard of generationOn or what we do, we’ve included some information below. We have a lot going on through the end of the year, and we’re excited to fill you in:

What is generationOn?

GenerationOn is the youth and family service division of Points of Light, igniting the power of kids, teens and families to make their mark on the world. GenerationOn inspires, equips and mobilizes over 750,000 kids and teens annually to take action through service, service learning and youth leadership initiatives. It also provides tools and resources to kids, teens, families, youth practitioners and educators to help kids change the world and themselves through service. You can find out more about us at

Upcoming generationOn campaigns and initiatives

Family Volunteer Day

Family Volunteer Day is a day of service that demonstrates and celebrates the power of families who volunteer together; supporting their neighborhoods, communities and the world. Points of Light created the day 23 years ago to showcase the benefits of family volunteering and to provide opportunities for families to help create supportive environments in their communities.

This year, Family Volunteer Day takes place on November 22. It is managed by generationOn in partnership with our exclusive sponsor, Disney Friends for Change, a global initiative that inspires kids and families to take action to help people, communities and the planet, as well as our HandsOn network affiliate partners across the country.

For more information on Family Volunteer Day, please visit

Joy Maker Campaign

Did you know that twenty-two percent of all children live in families with incomes below the federal poverty level? It can be especially hard for some of these families to afford presents during the holiday season. GenerationOn and Hasbro are challenging students to give back, get involved and spread joy. For each act of service completed from November 24—December 10, Hasbro will donate a toy or game to Toys for Tots.

This year, participating schools will receive a toolkit to assist in the planning and execution of service projects. Schools that share their story of service with a picture will be entered to win prizes, including funds to do more service, a celebrity-attended holiday party, and more!

Join us!

We’d love for you to join us and participate in Family Volunteer Day, Joy Maker, or both! Find out more about how you can get involved on our website,

generationOn Clubs

Looking to stay involved over the course of the year?

You can register a generationOn Club and continue to do service for the whole year! GenerationOn Clubs are groups of young people, supported by adults, who work together to do meaningful hands-on service projects locally, nationally, and globally, documenting their impact and sharing their success stories online. Young people can start a Club with friends, at schools, in faith-based and community organizations, or as a Club within an existing youth organization.

The generationOn Clubs program equip parents, educators and young leaders with the tools and resources to implement service projects, share their successes and be recognized for their service. Elementary-age kids can participate in Kids Care Clubs, led by an adult facilitator, while middle and high school-age youth can lead or participate in generationOn Service Clubs, supported by an adult advisor. Registration is free and easy! Learn more at
