After partnering together for multiple holiday seasons to send cookies as gifts to their clients, the team at DIETRICH was looking for additional ways to work with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer that would expand well beyond the holidays. “At DIETRICH, the season of giving is a year-round theme, and we are always looking for creative ways to work with our favorite non-profit organizations” says Krista Koteles, Vice President of Marketing with DIETRICH. “Cookies is an amazing non-profit that lives by their mission, upheld by strong ethics and led by a dedicated and professional team. Working with them is a pleasure.”
DIETRICH recently launched an annual effort in which all new business placed receives a Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Box of Hope. In addition, DIETRICH gives away cookie delivery subscriptions at industry events. Koteles says “Anyone who receives the cookies always reaches out to thank us for supporting a great organization. Our hope is that they will also give cookies as gifts to clients, friends and family.”
Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Founder, Gretchen Holt Witt, also shared with us the importance of building awareness of the organization’s work of raising critical funding for pediatric cancer research through the sale of cookies. “Partnerships like the one we have with DIETRICH are incredibly valuable to us because they allow us to reach people we might not have reached otherwise. Our cookies are a feel-good gift that also builds awareness of pediatric cancer and hopefully inspires people to do more. We’re so grateful to Dietrich for our partnership and the opportunity to reach their wonderful community.”
About Pediatric Cancer
Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease of children in the U.S. The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) federal budget was $4.6 billion. Of that, breast cancer received 12%, prostate cancer received 7%, and all 12 major groups of pediatric cancers combined received less than 3%. Two-thirds of pediatric cancer patients will develop long-term side effects, many life-threatening — a result of the treatments that “cured” them. Only four of the 12 most common types of childhood cancers have average survival rates over 80%. 13,500 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer each year.
There is ONE THING that can truly change the facts of childhood cancers forever — FUNDING for research to find new, improved therapies.
