The folks at Glad products (the sandwich bag people) have a regular charity outreach program called Glad to Give. It is currently focusing on cancer. According to their press release:
“Sometimes people can change the world—one cookie at a time…
That’s the idea behind Cookies for Kids’ Cancer™, a non-profit organization founded by parents inspired by their young son’s ongoing fight against cancer. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer™ inspires individuals, organizations, and businesses to join in the fight against pediatric cancer by raising funds and awareness through local bake sales and online efforts.
Today pediatric cancer is the number 1 cause of death by disease of children in the U.S., due in large part to the need for funding for research into new and improved therapies. Host a bake sale and raise funds to join Cookies for Kids’ Cancer™ in the fight against pediatric cancer.
Glad is teaming up with three celebrities this fall:
- Jayma Mays, everyone’s favorite high school guidance counselor from “Glee”
- Joan Cusack, Hollywood’s funny woman and resident “mom
on a mission”
- Peter Facinelli, the hottest doctor on TV and star of
The Twilight Saga
This November, Jayma, Joan and Peter will go head-to-head in a celebrity cookie challenge where they will compete to raise the most money through a month–long online bake sale.
Show your support by joining your favorite team at www.facebook.com/gladtogive and learn more about the upcoming challenge.”
Peter also Tweeted about his involvement.
