Cookies fight kids cancer

The holiday season is the perfect time to be thankful for all that you have, and to give a little back to those who aren’t as fortunate. Bakers are in a perfect position to spread holiday cheer, as food-related gifts are some of the most anticipated and appreciated.

The Cookies for Kids’ Cancer organization—their slogan: “Be a good cookie; give a good cookie”—provides a great example of this spirit of generosity. Through a partnership with a 25-year-old family-owned gourmet bakery in California, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer has seven delicious flavors of cookies consumers can choose from for gift purchases. The cookies are packed in beautiful gift boxes and include a note explaining Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, the significance of the buyer’s generosity and a personal note from the buyer. Gift recipients enjoy a stack of treats, while 100 percent of the proceeds go to fund pediatric cancer research. These cookies are a gift that truly feels as good to give as it tastes to receive.
