With the simple concept of holding a bake sale, Gretchen has put pediatric cancer on the map and has helped thousands of families and children battling this horrible disease. This organization is near and dear to my heart because they were there for me when my daughter was first diagnosed. I've personally had the chance to meet with Gretchen and she is an amazing woman. I will make it a personal mission to help raise funds for childhood cancer research and awareness through Cookies for Kids' Cancer.

Incredible organization based off of a simple idea: bake sales. Cookies For Kids' Cancer helps fund research for new treatments that will hopefully make the diagnosis of pediatric cancer not seem so scary one day. This organization was founded by loving parents and grows through the love and support of volunteers around the country. Everyone knows someone affected by cancer, and everyone can bake or buy cookies. Cookies For Kids' Cancer makes it easy to get involved, engage your community and make a difference for the most worthy of causes. My group of friends hosted an event last April called, 'The Queen City's Mom Prom,' and together we raised $20,000. We honored mothers currently living the nightmare of pediatric cancer as our Prom Queens and we hope to raise even more this April.

An amazing charity! Provides money to help find cures for pediatric cancers. We hosted a dozen bake sales locally and know it is money that will help find life-saving treatments.

Not everyone has cancer, but it is almost certain that everyone, at some point in their life, will be affected or will know someone that has cancer. Cookies for Kids Cancer is an organization that makes it so easy to give back! If you can’t bake cookies, you can help package cookies .if you can’t bake or package, you can sell cookies. If you can’t do any of the above you can buy and eat cookies! Planning and prepping for bake sales is easy and fun and can be done by people of all ages.

Cookies for Kids' Cancer is an awesome organization! I had the opportunity to co-host a large bake sale in South Alabama last month. A bake sale is a simple event to put together, and CFKC also allows the volunteers hosting bake sales to add to or change the event if they so feel. For instance our Bake Sale included a silent auction, live music, autograph signing (AJ McCarron w/ UA), a baseball tournament, and a bounce house. The ladies with CFKC were there to answer questions and/or to give suggestions along the way. Our event raised over $10,000.00.
Our CFKC Bake Sale was so successful that we have decided to make this an annual event.

My daughter, diagnosed at a young age with cancer, and cancer free since then, inspired me to want to do something to give back. I wanted to do something to make a difference. I started doing research, and learned of Cookies for Kids Cancer! I loved the story and the inspiration of CFKC....and what a great, realistic way to raise money for an incredible necessary cause. Early 2010, when I was organizing my first bake sale, they were so helpful and supportive and supplied the necessary advice and supplies for a successful bake sale. My first bake sale fundraiser was last year, and raised over $3,000! I completed my second one in May, in honor of Liam, and raised over $1600! I feel so great being part of an organization that helps get family, friends, children and neighbors, businesses, involved that want to give back as well.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways. A couple are 1) Inspiration for my children and family to make a difference with not much effort . 2) Feeling fulfilled that I did something for children still fighting.

Have a couple of extra contact individuals to be able to work a little of the time spreading the word about Cookies for Kids Cancer.. Other than that, very well organized and just LOVE them.

Cookies for Kid's Cancer is an AMAZING organization, founded by two AMAZING parents out of their love for their son, Liam. When Liam was diagnosed with cancer at 2 1/2 years old, they realized how underfunded pediatric cancer research is and vowed to make a change. They created a way for anyone to help raise money for children's cancer research. Moms, dads, sisters, brothers, grandparents, teachers, neighbors.... WHOEVER you are....you can help. Hold a bake sale, the web site walks you through it and the support from the organization along the way is outstanding. Buy some cookies for yourself, or send some to a friend.... it is so easy! I will continue to support this organization for the rest of my life, but hope that I see the day that it is no longer necessary. Until then, I will keep raising money to honor Liam who unfortunately lost his battle at the age of 6 1/2, and to help all of the other children out there still in the fight. They NEED us!

This was the most amazing organization I have ever done anything for or with. The people were all wonderful and the out pouring of love and wanting to be involved was a terrific thing to see. What a simple concept with such a tremendous impact for so many children and their families. The fact that it all started with a Mom who was dealing with the horrible sadness of trying to save her child and that she thought of cookies as a way to get the word out.. fabulous. I enjoyed doing the bake sale that we did and I really love being a part of this family now and forever. I am in for the duration until we can cure cancer in children! Thanks Gretchen and Rachel for getting us all involved.

wish that the borg. was not necessary so we would have a cure for these diseases. I would also try to enlist other huge corp. to inspire them to make something that would sell and be directly given to this cause.. which I am sure they are already doing.

Cookies for Kids' Cancer makes fundraising easy for everyone. We managed to throw together a combined bake sale & roller skating party in just two weeks, and raised over $3500 for pediatric cancer research. The planning was stress-free due to the support of all the wonderful team members at Cookies for Kids' Cancer. The website is extremely organized, user-friendly, and helpful during the entire process of hosting a bake sale. Cookies for Kids' Cancer gave our community a sweet and simple way to raise money and awareness for a serious issue. Thank you Cookies for Kids' Cancer. We will continue to spread the word!
