My family joined The Cookies For Kids' Cancer team several years ago and we've been hooked ever since. For us, Cookies Gor Kids' Cancer is not just about raising money. It's about making a difference in the lives of others. The reason my family and I feel such an attachment to Cookies For Kids' Cancer is because they are so different than any other charity out there. They go right to the source of the problem. They go to the research centers that need the money and give 100% of the profits directly to them so they can continue research an help combat this terrible disease. My family has been with Cookies almost since the start and we've been so glad to see them grow so exponentially in a matter of years. They are such friendly people and only have one goal: to help pediatric cancer research and awareness anyway they can. That's the reason that keeps drawing me back to this charity. Not because they help combat pediatric cancer. Not because they give 100% of there profits to the source. Because they care about what they do more than any charity out there and only live to help their cause. Cookies For Kids' Cancer has changed my life in so many ways and I'll alway remember the dedication they showed to this great cause.
Cookies for Kids'Cancer offered me a chance to celebrate and honor my best friend's son. It was a wonderful, sweet way to gather together a bunch of moms and daughters and bake for a cause. We all love that our local effort is part of a whole, big nationwide effort that has created real change in pediatric cancer research. We are working on our second annual event and everyone is thrilled to do it. What a great way to spread love, gratitude and hope!! We are honored to be part of this wonderful organization!
Several years ago I heard an ad on the radio about hosting a bake sale to raise money toward research of new therapies for pediatric cancer through Cookies for Kids Cancer. As a mom of 2 healthy children I felt compelled to do something to help those less fortunate with their efforts in finding a cure. I had no idea at that time how underfunded pediatric cancer research was. This is a special organization because they really make it simple for everyone to get involved in the fight. This holiday season I will be hosting my 4th annual bake sale for CFKC. It brings me, my family and friends great joy to contribute and we will continue to do so indefinitely.
After hearing Gretchin Witt speak at a conference I attended (there was not a dry eye in the place) I felt moved, compelled if you will, to host a bake sale of my own. I have now done 2 very successful sales and can't wait to do another one. There is simply no greater joy than knowing 100% of the money raised is sent to CFKC to fight pediatric cancer. The generosity of trusting strangers still never ceases to amaze me!
Cookies is a wonderful organization that fights for a common cause. They fund the much needed research for pediatric cancer. It's a great organization to support, and they make it very easy to get involved. Cookies is a wonderful thing to get your kids involved with too.
For two years in a row I have organized my town in a community wide effort to raise money for Cookies for Kids' Cancer. When I read Liam Witt's story and searched through the CFKC website and facebook page, I was immediately drawn in to do whatever I could to help raise money to fight pediatric cancer. We organized bake sales at all five elementary schools and many preschools in our town. Baking playdates occurred everyday throughout the month of May. Kids used their hands to make cookies, creativity to design posters and voices and spirit to sell cookies. We raised over $10,000 this year and can't wait to raise even more this year. "Kids helping kids" is the slogan that I connected to and I'll hopefully be helping out for a long time, both as a pediatrician, mom, girl scout leader and baker!
Cookies for Kids' Cancer is an AMAZING organization that makes it so easy to get involved and make a difference. It is such a joy to hold bake sales and other events and watch the community come together. CFKC does a great job at providing all the necessary tools so that anyone can hold a bakesale.
This charity is amazing. !00% of the proceeds go to funding a cure, which is so worthwhile. I hosted a bake sale, was able to get all the tools I needed from the website, had an amazing day where children and local moms were able to come together for a common cause, and the community response was far beyond what we had expected. Giving people the chance to make a difference in such an easy way was fulfilling on so many levels. Lovely people to work with as well, I had some questions that were answered promptly and efficiently. They couldn't have been nicer. I have also read alot about how the organization was founded, and was so moved by the story of how little Liam has inspired thousands of bake sales. A very special group.
I was proud to volunteer for a CFKC Bake Sale in May 2011. I was drawn to this amazing organization after reading about how it actually began. Fundamentally it is so basic. Have a bake sale... Raise money... Help find a cure. The Witt's story was so heart wrenching. But the strength of the story is what got me. From Prince Liam to his parents, the determination was beyond inspiring. To not take the little bit of time to help such a cause was an honor. I follow this cause on a daily basis. I do what I can spread awareness and when able I volunteer. I truly believe CFKC is one of the most remarkable charitable organizations out there.
This is an incredible organization that enables everyone - from kids to adults - to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. It creates awareness in such a simple way -- a good old fashioned bake sale. Everyone has fun, and feels great about the difference they are making - whether they are baking cookies, selling cookies, or spreading the news about the organization. The concept is so contagious that it often inspires others who see it to want to do the same in their own environment. The founders of CFKC suffered the ultimate loss and now their organization inspires people all over the world to make a difference.
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.
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.
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!
