If you’ve spent much time around Amy’s Cooking Adventures, you know that I love any sort of cooking club or competition.
I’m also a big fan of mash ups.
So today, I’m sharing the cookies I made for the Go Bo Bake Sale and I’m participating in a challenge.
The Go Bo Foundation was inspired by Bo, a 12 year old boy who fought bravely before succumbing to a rare type of leukemia.
Here’s a bit about the Go Bo! Foundation:
“Love each other, help each other, have your neighbor's back. If you see someone in need — even a stranger — reach out and help. This world can be a better place if we care and help each other.”
~ Bo Johnson
The Go Bo! Foundation has a three-tiered approach of assistance. They:
1. Fund childhood cancer and related blood disorder research at the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc.).
2. Support state-of-the-art treatment in a child friendly environment at Children’s
(Dr. David Margolis was Bo’s
doctor and he is a huge advocate and innovator in the field of childhood
cancer). Hospital of Wisconsin
3. “Pay it forward” to families of children diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Since most of the family’s energy is spent on their child, families often experience a financial crisis during this time. The Go Bo! Foundation’s goal is to assist in alleviating some of the financial worries by providing direct financial assistant (mortgage, rent, utilities, etc.). The assistance is not to be used for medical expenses, but rather to assist with the day-to-day bills.
Isn’t it a great cause?
The goal of the bake sale is to raise money for the foundation and the hope is to get the whole
involved. So when I noticed that my
state was conspicuously absent from the participating states, I signed up! United States
The theme was Halloween or fall cookies.
Now here’s the mash up…
Around the same time, Georganne , from LilaLoa offered up a challenge. She challenged us to use any random cookie cutters to make some cute little monsters.
So I dug through the collection and pulled out a bunch of cookie cutters that I’ve *ahem* never used.
Here they are matched up.
Aren’t they cute?!?
So there’s the mash up! A good cause and a cookie challenge all in one!
Happy Halloween and Go Bo!
