From the Back Cover

Cookies for Kids' Cancer was founded on the simple premise that no one can resist the allure of a cookie and the desire to help a worthy cause. A few years and a few hundred thousand cookies later, this people-powered charity has raised millions of dollars to help fund new pediatric cancer treatments. Now, everyone can chip in for the cause with this delicious collection of bake sale favorites, including cookies, brownies, cupcakes and cakes, muffins, scones, candies, and more. All of the author's royalties go to Cookies for Kids' Cancer, so a sweet tooth is more than just an opportunity for a treat—it's a chance to help kids in need.

I was so excited to hold this cookbook.... as soon as I opened it I noticed the awesome pictures of baked goods and the yummy recipes. As I looked further in the book I began to read the stories and it just amazed me how something so simple could inspire so many people to make a difference for children by holding a bake sale.

Bot 100 copies of Cookies for Kids Cancer Best Bake Sale Cookbook. My clients, friends, families, strangers on the street will receive copies. It is the perfect gift.
When the books arrived everyone crowded into my office oohing and aahing. (Our office held the first CFKC bakesale). Here are a few of my coworkers comments: "stunning', 'moving', inspirational, 'colorful' 'amazing'' vibrant',`makes me want to raise money', `great way to help kids learn to be philanthropic', `makes me hungry!'
Kate, wants to do a "Julie and Julia" next year--work her way through the cookbook, have bake sales for CFKC.
Liam, your mom IS doing everything she can.

My wife just baked up a batch of the blondies.....so good. She loves to bake and purchased this book because the proceeds support children's cancer research. We just ordered 4 more copies along with the OXO cookie spatula to give as gifts. The book has a nice assortment of recipes that may be used in setting up your own bake sale.

With the Internet's seemingly bottomless well of free recipes at your fingertips, it's not easy to justify spending money on a cookbook and clearing space for it on a shelf. The Cookies for Kids' Cancer Best Bake Sale Cookbook should absolutely be the exception.

This book was written by Gretchen Holt Witt, the mom of a preschool aged boy diagnosed with cancer (specifically neuroblastoma) in February 2007. As she and her husband absorbed the many grim realities associated with their son's illness, Gretchen was shocked to learn that the terrifying survival rate was directly related to how little money was allocated to research by the government and drug companies, despite the fact that pediatric cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 18. So while Gretchen was guiding Liam through surgeries, chemo and radiation, she was hatching a plan to hold a bake sale to raise money to fund pediatric cancer research. She and a small army of 250 volunteers baked 96,000 cookies in a borrowed space. Dozens of other families whose children were also battling neuroblastoma took orders from relatives, friends and neighbors. All 96,000 were sold, packed and shipped within three weeks, and the event raised over $400,000. Soon, it became clear that something bigger than one bake sale had begun. Requests for cookies continued to pour in.

Cookies for Kids' Cancer was the result, an organization founded to do fundraising and funnel money directly to doctors doing cutting-edge work developing new, improved cancer therapies specifically for children. The concept is simple yet sweet: Hold a local bake sale on behalf of Cookies for Kids' Cancer.

If you just read the intro to the book, you'll want to buy it, if for nothing else than the help the wonderful Cookies for Kids' Cancer organization. But don't let that be the only reason. Sure, you should read the story of how this amazing mom simply would NOT accept the harsh reality that pediatric cancer research gets virtually NO funding. You could get mad, but instead, you should be inspired. Inspired by her example, and the example set by literally thousands of others, to do something about it, and hold a bake sale. And that's where the book really comes in handy. It showcases some of the great bake sales this charity has inspired, both big and small (and no bake sale is small!) and gives invaluable tips and ideas. But the real gems are the recipes, which are foolproof and wonderful. There's something for everyone, from chocoholics to sugar cookie lovers.

Just on a practical level, love the spiral binding so the book stays open while baking.

The book also makes a great gift for the baker in your life. How many books inspire, do good (proceeds to charity) and give you awesome recipes? Not many!

As the Mom of an 8-year old daughter who really enjoys to bake I found this book to be a wonderful addition to our kitchen library. There are so many baking/cooking books 'out there' but this book just called to us...both. The recipes are fabulous, but that's not even the best of it. The pictures... the stories... not only do I get to bake with my daughter and enjoy our special time together. But she gets to learn so much. This book has given her an awareness she may never have known. She brought it to 'show & tell' to share the book [and more importantly it's awareness] with her teacher and classmates & she's already planning a BAKE SALE to help raise money for the very neccesary cause of COOKIESFORKIDSCANCER. Indeed this is a most wonderful cooking book that sweetens ones life in so many beautiful ways. (By the way, my Christmas shopping is near complete as I have purchased this for family/friends, my daughters teachers & sport coaches!)
