Chipping Away at a Problem

I’m never one to turn down a cookie. Especially when it’s a cookie that helps fight pediatric cancer. And that’s what all the treats sold by Cookies for Kids’ Cancer do. The charitable organization was founded by a mom inspired by her son’s battle against neuroblastoma. Since its first bake sale in 2007 and official launch in 2008, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer has raised some $700,000 to fund pediatric cancer research. Cookies ($30 a dozen) come in flavors like triple chocolate chunk and chewy oatmeal raisin, and 100 percent of the profits help fund research for new and improved therapies for pediatric cancer. And through the end of December, the Glad Products Company is matching all the funds raised by Cookies for Kids’ Cancer up to $100,000. Which makes this gift idea an extra sweet one.
