Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a non-profit organization that I recently heard about on the Martha Stewart Show. It was founded by a mom whose son developed cancer when she discovered that the treatments for pediatric cancers lagged behind treatments available for adults.
You can show your support in many ways. You can get involved in fundraising with your own bake sale, by purchasing baked goods on their website, with a direct donation or just by spreading the word to your friends & family...
Cancer is still the #1 illness that claims the lives of children. More can be done & you can be a part of this important fight.

Are you interested in rescuing dogs? My sister adopted a rescue Bouvier from the American Bouvier Rescue League (ABRL) and she was so impressed with the work that ABRL does that she decided to become one of their volunteers.
Want to know more about Bouviers?... Well, the full name of the breed is "Bouvier des Flandres." They are a beautiful, intelligent breed of dogs that many people don't even know about, but they are quite special (in fact President Regan's dog, Lucky, was a Bouvier). They are gentle, loyal, & protective in nature. The breed's unique blend of characteristics makes them good family pets, as well as keen guard dogs.
Please check out the American Bouvier Rescue League (ABRL) website for listings of Bouviers in need of a permanent home...
