http://www.cookiesforkidscancer.org/ is helping to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer. One way you can help out is to hold a bake sale. The site can give you recipes , ideas, location ideas and tools to help you along.
My idea for a good place to hold one is during a block garage sale or block party. You could also sell some water and/or lemonade also. One recipe I like is popcorn snack
3 quarts popped popcorn
4 cups Cheerios® cereal
4 cups Corn or Rice Chex® cereal
2 cups salted peanuts
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
In a large greased roasting pan, combine popcorn, cereal and peanuts. In a large saucepan, combine brown sugar, corn syrup and butter; bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; quickly stir in vanilla and baking soda until mixture is light and foamy. Immediately pour over popcorn mixture; mix well. Bake, uncovered, at 250 degrees F for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool completely.
You can bag the mix into little bags, tie with a ribbon and card that thanks them for their support.
So do something good and positive and raise money for a great cause!
