1. Spread the word about Baking Memories 4 Kids!
Cookies are great holiday gifts, they make great hostess gifts, and they are easy to purchase if you are attending a cookie exchange. Also, 70 percent of the total sales are corporate gifts, so let local businesses know about the opportunity to give employees a unique gift while making a difference in their community.
2. Purchase cookies or make donations.
You can buy cookies online at bakingmemories4kids.com or find out which local stores, delis, and bakeries are partnering to sell the cookies on the Baking Memories 4 Kids Facebook Page. There will also be pop-up shops around the county! If you want to donate to the organization without buying cookies, Metz recommends holding a fundraiser, like a “good, old-fashioned bake sale,” and donating the proceeds to the nonprofit.
3. Nominate a family.
Anyone can nominate a child with a life-threatening illness, that hasn’t received a wish yet, and are between the ages of 3-18. The organization is always working toward sending more families on amazing trips. Baking Memories 4 Kids begins taking nominations in January.
4. Sign up to volunteer with Baking Memories 4 Kids.
Even though the sales of the cookies will end after Christmas, there will still be many opportunities for volunteers. Baking Memories 4 Kids will be celebrating its 10-year anniversary in April 2022, and it’s planning a big event at the Palisades Mall. The nonprofit will be looking forward to accepting volunteers to help with this and other events throughout the year.
It is truly heartwarming to read the stories and testimonials from the children and families that have benefited from this organization. Watching the videos of the moment these struggling children hear the surprising news that they will be going on their dream vacation reminds us that small efforts on our part can make a huge difference. With every dollar donated, a memory is created.
