Who doesn’t love a good cookie?
We are organizing a bake sale on September 30th in our community to raise money for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer (www.cookiesforkidscancer.org)
Cookies for Kids’ Cancer is a 501(c)3 nonprofit public charity raising money for pediatric cancer research through local bake sales. It was founded by a very determined mother to help increase her young son’s odds in his fight against cancer. In late 2007, she had the idea to bake cookies to sell during the holidays. Her small idea became a huge movement with 96,000 cookies baked and sold during a three-week period with the help of more than 250 dedicated volunteers. Her bake sale raised more than $400,000. During that massive bake sale she realized people want to get involved and help, they just need a way to do so. So Cookies for Kids’ Cancer was created.
If you are wondering why there is a need to raise money for pediatric cancer research, it might come as a surprise that pediatric cancer is the number one disease killer in the U.S. of children under the age of 18. In fact, it kills more children than asthma, AIDS, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis combined. Unfortunately, pediatric cancer receives a very small percentage of the National Cancer Institute’s $4.8 billion annual budget and almost no research and development dollars from pharmaceutical companies.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 during our bake sale. We hope you will help us reach our goal. Every dollar counts and every dollar makes a difference. Research funding has made a direct and measurable impact on the survival rates of pediatric cancer. If children are our most precious resource, why wouldn’t we do everything in our power to keep them safe? It’s our responsibility and obligation to protect them and our future.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. As the mother whose idea it was to create Cookies for Kids’ Cancer says, “If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes the world to fight pediatric cancer.” We’re in this fight because every child battling cancer deserves a fighting chance. I hope you too will join my efforts and be a good cookie.
So I mentioned a while back holding a bake sale one of these days. The flame is lit and I'm ready to start making a difference not only for my child but for all the children battling this horrible disease. I thought what better month than to plan a bake sale in September, National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
We will be looking for volunteers to help bake cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, and other bake sale treats! I will be handing out my own recipes (Sassy Cakes and Cupcakes) for the cupcakes listed above for those who want to bake...AND you can keep the recipe!!
Here is also a link for some of the recipes posted on the Cookies for Kids Cancer website. If you have a wonderful recipe that you would like to use, please do so!! All creativity is needed and welcome!!
As I travel through this journey and learn how little funds are dedicated to childhood cancer research, it only makes me want to fight that much harder and work to support these little children who have to battle cancer. I've seen first-hand what this disease can do not just with my own little girl but with others we have meet on the way... and it's heartbreaking. I want to help give these children a fighting chance and a future. Instead of turning our backs because it is too sad to see and pretend like it will never happen to us, let's take a stand and make a difference. It's frustrating hearing about all these other cancers gaining worldwide recognition and billions of dollars for research while the children, our future, get the leftover handful of money. It's frustrating to hear about all the big pharmaceutical companies spending their resources on "money making" pills rather than research to cure childhood cancer. It's extremely frustrating to get denials from insurance companies because the current research for treating childhood cancer is still "experimental". There's not enough attention paid to childhood cancer to make funds readily available for further research, less toxic treatments, less morbidity and higher survival rates!
We can do this by raising awareness and raising funds for research. It starts here...it starts with all of you. Let's spread awareness, raise money and help these little ones fight for life!
August 8th Update:
The meeting was fantastic and I am so fired up about this bake sale!! Thank you all for being there; Kellie, Jesse, Jacque, Mel, Jen, Cherri, Stacey, Larisa, and Ronnie (our male voice). Don't worry if you weren't able to be there. We will definitely have more meetings! But please keep emailing me if you would like to help out!
Since Santa Cruz County is such a great place and we have such an amazing support system here, we wanted to pull out all the stops and make this bake sale big, fun and successful and have more than just one location.
We will continue to work on locations and once we nail down our three, we can continue the planning. Kellie and I are writing up the notes from the meeting and we can put them out there for those who wanna get involved! Its going to be so great!!
