We’re here with a giveaway from Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. This organization was founded by two OXO employees, Gretchen and Larry Witt who were inspired by their son Liam’s battle with pediatric cancer. They were shocked to learn that the main reason over 25% of kids diagnosed with cancer do not survive is because of a lack of effective therapies. And the reason for the lack of effective therapies was simple: lack of funding. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer was created to fill this void and to provide inspiration and support for individuals, communities and businesses to help fight pediatric cancer through the concept of local bake sales. The organization has raised over $150,000 to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. This year, OXO will donate up to $100,000 to support research for new and improved therapies. Here are three easy ways to bake a difference and join OXO in the movement to find a cure for pediatric cancer:
1. Cookie Spatula – Purchase a Limited Edition Cookie Spatula. Your purchase helps OXO support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Up to $100,000, 50% of profits benefit pediatric cancer awareness.
2. Virtual Cookie – Spread the word about Cookies for Kids’ Cancer by sending a virtual cookie to all of your friends. OXO will make a donation per cookie shared, up to 10,000 cookies each week.
3. Host a Bake Sale – Large or small, your bake sale will raise funds for new and less harmful treatments for pediatric cancer. With OXO’s support, every dollar counts twice as much! From July 19th to December 31st, OXO will match all proceeds from registered bake sales, up to $100,000.
Oxo is giving away a copy of the Best Bakesale Cookbook along with a limited edition Oxo “Be a Good Cookie” spatula.
