When families come together to host events, too often it is because a family member has been impacted by pediatric cancer. In Sheryl’s case, she was moved by the efforts of the families who must battle through this disease. She felt she must do something to help. What a sweet way to help support pediatric cancer research!

This holiday season, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer is partnering with The Glad Products Company to help increase awareness of pediatric cancer and raise money to support research for new and improved therapies. Consumers are encouraged to host bake sales to benefit Cookies for Kids’ Cancer and Glad® will match all funds raised this November and December, up to $100,000.

We hope Pediatric Cancer Awareness month inspired you to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. With the holidays fast approaching, now is the time to start thinking about how to take your spark of inspiration and turn it into action to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer. We know it is no small feat to pull off a community bake sale. We also know every small amount of money and awareness raised works together to fund better treatments for each and every child battling this disease. Believe in the power of inspiration and action – come be a Good Cookie with us!

Thank you – for reading the blog, following us on Facebook, buying philosophy shower gel, and being a Good Cookie!
