Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a great organization. They make it so easy to get involved and raise money for the cause. They provide all the tools necessary to host a great event and most importantly, are so clear at communication where the much needed funds go.
I think lots of people have dreams and ideas about making a difference, but few people can actually make things happen. When the Witt's learned that their sweet Prince Liam had cancer, one that was not "profitiable" for pharmaceutical companies to invest in, they did something about it, they started Cookies for Kids Cancer. They did this while their sweet Liam had no evidence of disease, they did it for all the other children who were fighting and suffering. After losing their son, they continue to inspire and motivate people everywhere to do what they can to make a difference and raise money for this important cause.
While there are thousands of non profits that people can choose to give their time and money to, CFKC is doing wonderful things with the money they raise and will no doubt be the reason that children will survive childhood cancer.
Cookies for Kids' Cancer is an absolutely fantastic organization. Besides having raised millions for pediatric cancer research, they provide a wonderful support system for people who want to get involved. It's the simple act of "doing something" that is appreciated. They make it easy to create and host your own events, no matter if it's a neighborhood bakesale or a larger city wide event. I founded a CFKC 5K in Charlotte, NC and was overwhelmed with the support I received from the CFKC community. The passion and commitment behind this organization is powerful.
Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a fantastic organization making a true difference in how pediatric cancer is treated. The concept is simple and sweet: By holding bake sales, anyone and everyone can raise money that goes directly to leading scientists around the world performing cutting-edge research on drugs and surgeries that maximize kids' odds of survival. Neither the federal government nor big drug companies do anything substantial in terms of furthering pediatric cancer research. It is up to individuals. The founder's son died of neuroblastoma after a brutal, multi-year fight, and she carries forward with Cookies in his name and the name of every child still in the war. She is dedicated, passionate and utterly inspirational, as is her core group of staff and volunteers. Anyone looking for an organization making a difference in the lives of the sickest kids need look no further. Cookies is it.
Our event honors 5-year old Logan Wight who lost his battle with AT/RT on Feb. 11, 2012. Logan's family will be flying from California to Florida to attend our community bake sale. They support our efforts in raising funds for research so that no other child has to endure what their sweet boy went through.
As a mom of a pediatric cancer patient, I am so thankful for the work done by CFKC- we have had huge events each September for two years, and the CFKC team has fully supported us with kits, ideas and contact with matching funds organizations. It's great to know that, due to the volunteers in the organization, the funds raised go to new treatments! Thank you CFKC!!
Amazing organization who has brought a lot of awareness to the lack of funding available for pediatric cancer. From a grassroot effort of one single person, this organization has grown and now funded a broad range of clinical trials. As a mom of a young cancer warrior, I am so grateful to know that there are trials in the pipeline that will hopefully cure this horrible disease-- kids' cancer isn't 'rare' and we need to give hope to other families facing this!
I have been volunteering with Cookies For Kids' Cancer since it began 5 years ago. We have planned numerous events and raised a lot of "dough" for this wonderful charity. I am thrilled to be apart of this organization - They are truly good cookies in every sense of the word.
I've been volunteering with Cookies for Kids' Cancer for several years, and find their support and enthusiasm for the cause inspiring. I've held several events and am every time, people are appreciative of the opportunity to learn more and the fact that we're spreading awareness. Cookies' recognizes events big and small, and empowers people of all ages to get involved. My son's Montessori school holds twice-yearly bake sale, involves kids from toddlers on up, and every child gets very excited to participate in this community project.
Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a fabulous non-profit run by a team of highly dedicated and motivated employees and volunteers. They truly care about each and every supporter and make an effort to keep them in the loop and let them know how much their support matters to the cause. The money raised by Cookies is very thoughtfully donated to hospitals and individuals that can make the best use of the money and make sure it gets to the children in need as fast as possible. Their over head is very low because they know that every penny counts and can save lives.
As a mom of two young boys, I cannot imagine what other mothers who have kids battling cancer must go through. I have become so inspired by the story behind Cookies for Kids’ Cancer and the incredible work they’ve done in such a short amount of time. It’s such an honor and a privilege to raise funds for this organization. Not only does Cookies for Kids’ Cancer provide millions of dollars for pediatric cancer research, but they also provide hope for families who need it most.
After I started working at the dental office I was touched by parents and grandparents who would talk about their child or grandchild that was currently was going through treatment for some type cancer. It touched me so that I went online to see if there was anything I could do to raise awareness of pediatric cancer. My search brought me to Cookies for Kid's Cancer and I feel in love with idea of having a bake sale to raise money and awareness. I love to ake so this was a perfect match for me. I held my first bake sell a year ago and raised more than I thought I would. If was just my 2 adult children, my husband and myself. I was so surprised at the response we got in front of Stop and Shop, Groton Connecticut. Also, I was so impressed with the support I got from The staff at Cookies for Kid's Cancer, were so helpful and so supportive while I was planning and even after I held the bake sale. I can not think of a better non profit group than Cookie's for Kid's Cancer. They are helping our future in such a positive way. Thank you for all do, best wishes from a volunteer for ever.
