The Gift That Keeps On Giving

During this holiday season everyone has gifts on the brain. During a recent trip with the boys to Toys R Us (baaaad decision, by the way) I watched parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles piling their little blue shopping carts high with every sort of goody imaginable. There were kitchens, Barbies, every form of action figure, electronics, life-size stuffed animals, trains, planes, and automobiles. Anything and everything a child (and some adults *coughhusbandcough*) could want was being payed for without a flinch. I could almost the feel the rising numbers on the credit card accounts and the funds depleting from the bank accounts. It's truly incredible what people will spend money on during the holidays, and even more jaw dropping just how much they spend.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could give a gift to someone without having to wonder if the wrapping paper will the best part of the gift? Imagine the peace you would have handing over a present with real meaning behind it. Picture, for a moment, actual "good will toward men" in your holiday gift giving. One perfect example of this is giving someone a Box Of Hope from Cookies For Kids' Cancer. Baked goods are a popular gift this time of year and who could have a better cookie than one that helps fight childhood cancer!
The Cookies For Kids' Cancer organization was started in honor of Liam Witt, a 4 year old little boy who has been battling cancer for nearly 2 years. His mother keeps up a heart wrenching blog that gives a very candid look into the life of a family fighting cancer together. Their blog, Prince Liam the Brave, will be all the motivation you'll need to buy up as many of these cookies as you can.
Along with their great purpose, these cookies are also all natural and come in 3 yummy flavors, Chewy Oatmeal Raisin, Liam's Lemon Sugar, and Chunky Chocolate chip. With boasts like all natural ingredients, no trans fats, no preservatives, and fresh baked to order they're not only good but good for you. And with 75% of the proceeds going to Cookies For Kids' Cancer, they're even better for the soul. You can even host a bake sale! So get in the true spirit of the holiday season by giving a Box of Hope!
