On Friday afternoon, I was greeted at the door by a UPS delivery guy holding a Cookies for Kids’ Cancer package. I eagerly opened it, knowing that after months of designing, tweaking, and waiting, at long last I would get to see our first-ever Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Scout Patch.
I couldn’t be more delighted with the bright, colorful patch we hope to send to thousands of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Daisies, and all other patch-collecting-troops who take the time to host a Cookies for Kids’ Cancer bake sale. We hope this patch will inspire troops to get involved and spread the word about the need for more funding for pediatric cancer research.
We’ve already had dozens of Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops host bake sales, together raising thousands of dollars for new and improved treatments for pediatric cancer. Many more troops have registered bake sales for this spring. And as a sign of our gratitude for their support, we will send one patch for each scout who rolled up their sleeves and worked to make a difference in the lives of kids everywhere.
Thank you for hosting bake sales. You give us HOPE for a better future for all kids fighting pediatric cancer.
