The first step to Be a Good Cookie is deciding to get involved and raise money for kids fighting cancer. Then the fun can begin. Cookies for Kids' Cancer started out inspiring bake sales, but over the past 8 years, supporters have come up with creative and fun ways to Be a Good Cookie. Host a bake sale or cookie swap, compete in an athletic event, organize a hat day, dress down day or other kind of "give day" at school or the office - the possibilities are unlimited and should be inspired by personal passions and desire to help. Thank you for Being a Good Cookie.

Christina Hebda and a team of employees from OMD in Los Angeles hosted their 4th annual office bake sale for Cookies in May 2014. They baked and packaged treats to sell, and set up a table to offer the goodies to others throughout the office in exchange for donations.
I absolutely love to bake! Anytime I get some free time, I am in the kitchen testing a new recipe or flipping cooking magazines looking for new recipes to try. I have done a small amount of charity baking in the past, but really wanted 2013 to be a year that I got more involved. When I came across the Cookies for Kids' Cancer site, I knew this was the one. The inspirational stories tugged at my heart. I immediately approached my company and asked how we could make this happen.
