Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Blog

We Took The Gratitude Challenge! #IAmGrateful

Filed under: childhood cancer research — The Good Cookies @ 8:34 am October 8, 2014

 

We have to admit, we feel like we cheated a little bit on this challenge! During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, supporters from all over the country came together to host nearly 300 events in over 180 cities — ALL to benefit kids battling cancer. Just how challenging can it be to write a list of things for which you are grateful after a month like that? Thank you for Being Good Cookies in September and always.
