September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and OXO is once again supporting Cookies for Kids’ Cancer! I’m so excited to continue my relationship with OXO and can’t wait for you to try out the cookies that I created especially for the program.
Cookies for Kids’ Cancer was founded by two OXO employees who were inspired by their son Liam’s battle with pediatric cancer, a disease which claims the lives of more children in the US than any other disease. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer provides inspiration and support to allow anyone to easily get involved in fundraising to find a cure for pediatric cancer. The news of Liam’s diagnosis hit OXO hard and they’ve been personally involved with this worthy organization from the beginning. As a formal show of support, in 2014, OXO will donate up to $100,000 to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. So during the month of September, they’re donating $100 for each blog post specially dedicated to this campaign.
In the years I’ve participated, I’ve baked up a batch of Flourless Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies, Pumpkin Spice Brookies and now, these Dark Chocolate & Pecan Brownie Cookies! Double the chocolate, studded with chopped pecans and sprinkled with freshly-ground sea salt, these cookies will be the star of your next dessert tray!
Keep an eye out for the cookies galore that have been already been pinned to OXO’s Pinterest board! So many yummy recipes, so little time!
And while you’re out & about, look for specially stickered items at participating retailers – for every stickered item sold, OXO will donate 25 cents in support of pediatric cancer research as part of its $100,000 pledge to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer!
Disclosure: I have partnered with OXO to help promote their participation with ‘Cookies for Kids’ Cancer’. I was compensated with a set of cookie-baking tools by OXO. However, opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
