So, you’ve heard about Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, but you’re just not too sure about hosting an actual bake sale. Maybe baking isn’t your thing. .. or maybe you don’t even know how to turn on your oven. That is OK. Here at Cookies for Kids’ Cancer we want the idea of a bake sale to inspire you to get involved in the fight to cure pediatric cancer in exactly your style. . .just like high school senior Codi Silver who recently raised $1,000 simply by doing something she loves to do, designing and selling stylish accessories. 

Codi learned about Liam at a Cookies for Kids’ Cancer bake sale, then decided to put some of her other talents to good use to raise some more money in honor of Liam. In the Fashion Technology Class at Marlboro High School, Marlboro, NJ, the instructor complimented Codi’s bracelet with various-sized buttons strung together. Codi realized the simply styled accessory might be appealing to many. . .especially if the bracelet represented both good style and a good cause.

Codi searched the Internet and local craft stores for the perfect buttons, bought boxes of all-sized buttons and brought them to class. She and her classmates assembed and sold button bracelets for $2 each and made $1000, all in honor of Liam.

No flour necessary. No butter burned. All Codi needed to support the cause was a box of buttons, some good friends and enthusiasm. That’s not just good style, that’s a good cookie.

We hope you will be inspired to host a bake sale, even if you don’t serve cookies. And if what you really want is a delicious, gourmet cookie with no baking required, simply buy a box from Cookies for Kids’ Cancer today. Have a good cookie. Be a good cookie.
