Help OXO with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer!

OXO was founded by a married couple whose son was battling pediatric cancer. According to the company, over 25% of kids diagnosed with cancer don't survive. Thus, more effective treatments are needed and more research needs to be done. But how do more effective treatments come about? They require funding.

Cookies for Kids’ Cancer by OXO began as a means to help fight pediatric cancer though local bake sales. In recent years, over $2.5 million has been raised for pediatric cancer research. This year, the organization is looking to raise even more than ever before.

You can help by:
  • Buying a "good cookie" spatula
  • Sending a virtual cookie on facebook
  • Finding a registered bake sale in your area
  • Hosting a bake sale
