@Cookies4Kids Charity for Pediatric Cancer *Giveaway*

Today, I wanted to help spread the word about Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Cookies was founded by two OXO employees, Gretchen and Larry Witt, who were inspired by their son Liam’s battle with pediatric cancer. They were shocked to learn that the main reason over 25% of kids diagnosed with cancer do not survive is because of a lack of effective therapies. And the reason for the lack of effective therapies was simple: lack of funding.
Cookies for Kids’ Cancer was born to fill this void and to provide inspiration and support for individuals, communities, and businesses to help fight pediatric cancer through the concept of local bake sales. OXOnians showed their support by baking cookies and holding bake sales. Through these efforts, they raised over $150,000 to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. This year, OXO will donate up to $100,000 to support research for new and improved therapies.
So what’s the picture of the spatula about? The purchase of every Limited Edition Cookie Spatula helps OXO support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer as 50% of the profits benefit pediatric cancer awareness, up to $100,000. To purchase, visit your nearest Bed Bath & Beyond, Amazon.com, or check out the store locator to find a local retailer.
You can visit www.oxogoodcookies.com to send Virtual Cookies to help spread the word and find out how to host a Bake Sale or fundraising event for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Until December 31st, OXO will match all proceeds from registered bake sales, up to $100,000.
