We are fundraising for pediatric cancer research funds again! This is the seventh annual Good Cookies Valentine’s Event! I’m thrilled to be participating again to help make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer research.
My food blogger and content creator friends got together again and we are sharing Valentine’s Day inspired recipes to inspire you to cook and to share and donate to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.
Did you know that cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S?
And that childhood cancer survivors often have long term effects, more than ⅔ of them develop secondary cancers, heart disease, kidney disease and others.
There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now.
We would love your help to get the word out about how much childhood cancers affect a lot of us. A lot of us know someone who has been affected. Let’s help make these families lives a little bit better. Please help spread the word and if you can, please donate today to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer
Our goal is to raise at least $3000. Because has Mediavine pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3000! That means your donation will be doubled!
Thank you to so many of you who have already donated, please help us reach our goal so we can get the full matching donations and help us make an even huge difference!
We have until March 31st to raise $3000! So please donate today!
