September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and OXO is getting ready for our annual partnership with Cookies for Kids' Cancer.*
Childhood cancer claims the lives of more children in the US than any other disease. Cookies for Kids' Canceris committed to raising funds to research new, improved treatments and provides inspiration and support for those who want to help.
In 2011, we announced a formal partnership with Cookies for Kids' Cancer, pledging up to $100,000 in support of the organization. Our pledge inspired others to get involved, and in the past two years, we have collectively raised over $650,000 for this worthy cause.
This year, we are thrilled to continue this inspirational program with high hopes of helping those with childhood cancer. Read on to learn the many ways you can make an impact.
This year, OXO has dedicated a portion of the proceeds of some of our best-selling baking tools to benefit Cookies for Kids Cancer. Look for this sticker at participating retailers this fall or purchase these tools at www.oxo.com.
For each of the specially marked items sold, OXO will donate 25 cents in support of childhood cancer research as part of our $100,000 commitment* to Cookies for Kids' Cancer.
Make an "INSTA-nation"
Instagram is a quick and easy way to "Bake a Difference." To get involved:
Large or small, a bake sale or other local event can raise funds for childhood cancer treatments. And this year, OXO will match all proceeds from eligible events as part of our commitment* to Cookies for Kids' Cancer.
This year, we are thrilled to kick off our "Bake a Difference" campaign with food bloggers nationwide. For their efforts, we have donated $100 on their behalf as part of our pledge to this great cause.
Check out some of the deliciously amazing recipes below, and don't forget to visit Pinterest to see all the incredible work they've done! Keep the Board bookmarked as we will continue to add recipes during the month of September.
