September marks the return to school for most kids. But for those battling pediatric cancer, this month holds other, greater challenges and significant meaning. In support of Pediatric Cancer Awareness month, the Glad Products Company has once again committed to help Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a non-profit that raises money to support pediatric cancer research. Now through Dec. 31, 2010, Glad will match bake sale funds raised by the charity, up to $200,000, and has enlisted popular celebrities to help spread the word and compete in an online bake sale benefiting the cause.
Whether you have five minutes or five weeks, you can be a good cookie and help fund pediatric cancer research. Here are four ways to get involved:
— Host a Bake Sale – Now through Dec. 31, 2010, Glad® will match all funds raised through Cookies for Kids’ Cancer(TM) bake sales, up to $200,000. Go to www.GladtoGive.com to learn how to register your bake sale.
— Support a Star – In November, Glad® is teaming with Hollywood’s funny woman Joan Cusack, Peter Facinelli of The Twilight Saga, and Jayma Mays of the hit TV show “Glee.” The trio will compete to raise the most money in a month-long charitable bake sale. Visit www.facebook.com/GladtoGive to join a celebrity team and learn more about the challenge.
— Purchase Glad® Products – Now through September 2011, consumers who purchase specially-marked Glad® products and enter a code from the package at www.GladtoGive.com will trigger a $1 donation from Glad® to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer(TM), up to $200,000. This is in addition to Glad®’s $200,000 bake sale match this season.
— Buy Cookies – Don’t have time to bake? In November, buy delicious cookies at www.CookiesForKidsCancer.org, and 100 percent of the net revenue will benefit the charity.
