It's the Second Annual Good Cookies Food Bloggers' Valentine's Event! Food bloggers have been good cookies for several years showing their support for Cookies for Kid's Cancer and we are going to continue that! We're honored to be continuing to support C4KC in their tenth anniversary year too!
Our main goal is to raise awareness of childhood cancers and to raise much needed funds.
Did you know that that cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S.? There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right NOW. With less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute's budget going to all childhood cancer combined, I knew it was important for me to get involved. And that's why I have been involved the last six years and continue to be involved.
Last year, we raised $12,250!!! Let's beat that this year!
How it works:
- Donate at least $25 and then sign up (at the bottom of this page) to participate. There are prizes if you donate more. (See below for more information!)
- Post an original or adapted Valentine's Day inspired recipe (with credit of course) new to your blog on Thursday, February 8th and we'll all link up to each other.
- Ask your readers and followers to donate to our Cookies for Kids' Cancer fundraising page. (You can tell them about the matching if you'd like.)
- Pat yourself on the back for raising awareness and helping to raise much needed funds!
Who can participate:
Active food bloggers (which means you write about food in some capacity and your blog is at least 3 months old and you are actively posting).
If you can't participate, please consider donating!

Our goal is to raise $3000 in donations! The sponsors below have generously offered to match the donations WE RAISE up to $3000. For every $1 donated, it becomes $4…how amazing is that?
