2010 PAC2 Holiday Shopping Guide

In the spirit of collaboration amongst childhood cancer charities - we've created the Third Annual PAC2 Holiday Shopping Guide.  What better time than the Holiday Season to work together to benefit the kids?  The list below highlights gift-giving opportunities from some great organizations - all benefiting childhood cancer. We apologize in advance for those not listed (please contact us if you want to be added!).  If you don't find what you need here (you are pretty picky!), maybe one of the organizations here or here catch your eye.   All the pictures are active links to the cause referenced below (or so we hope).  Happy Holidays!



The CureSearch Holiday Gift shop offers a wide variety of items including artwork from children touched by cancer and their siblings to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research.  You can buy a tie, a Reach the Day - Gold Ribbon key chain, or order your Holiday Cards all in benefit of CureSearch and COG!


From our good friends at Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation: Do YOU have YOUR ALSF Inaugural Holiday Ornament ordered yet???  Or maybe that snow got you cold?  Well then pick up a ALSF Hooded Sweatshirt silly!  Or, for the guy that's got everything: A Sponsorship to the 2011 Lemon Ball


 

I like the Irish. They have great beer.  But what to drink it in and STILL benefit childhood cancer??  Obviously a St. Baldrick's Stein.  That's just one example of the great gifts available at the St. Baldrick's Gift Shop or Store


The Holidays are a time of peace and love and what better way to share it than The Rally Foundation Peace, Love and Rally T-shirts or Rally Holiday Cards?


All kids love soccer balls from the Andrew McDonough B+ (Be Positive) Foundation!  And mom and dad need the B+ Coffee to get the kid to practice on time! 


Who doesn't like cookies?  No one!  So how can you go wrong giving the natural gourmet cookies made by Cookies for Kids Cancer as a delicious holiday gift for anyone on your list?  They taste as good to eat as it feels to give.  And, Glad is matching bake sale proceeds thru the end of 2010, up to $200k, so have one today!



Flowers anyone?  Try The Lemon Bouquet to benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand, or ProFlowers where $10 of your order will be donated to CureSearch



How about giving a gift to a kid with cancer?  Your $20 will send an Elf and a book “A Gift from Catie” to a pediatric cancer patient and $5 will also be donated to CURE Childhood Cancer.



Those darn calendars again....keeping track of stuff.  Reminders.  Ugh.  If you want do that kind of thing, get your calendar at 46 mommas shave for the brave and benefit St. Baldrick's.



This beautiful one-of-a-kind hand-blown glass ornament was created by the talented artists at Uptown Glassworks from Renton, Washington. Uptown Glassworks continues to support the Friends for Life Guild at Seattle Children's every year with their unique artistry.


The artwork featured on Cure to the Kids holiday photo cards has been created by a nationwide group of pediatric cancer patients, by artists, and by siblings of pediatric cancer patients who are greatly impacted by the disease.


 

AND - as a catch-all, just do ALL your shopping via http://www.igive.com!  Register with iGive, select a charity, like Alex's Lemonade Stand. St. Baldricks, Cookies for Kids Cancer or CureSearch, and shop at some popular stores like Nordstrom, Gap, Home Depot, Amazon.com, etc... and a portion of the sale will go to your selected charity!


Or, how about:

  • New additions to the family this year?  Get your baby clothes at Big Heart Baby and benefit CureSearch.
  • Is your giftee into Bears?  As in Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation!  Then you need to check out the Bear Necessities Gift Shop for teddy bears, bear bracelets and more!
  • How about for the cook in the family you want to keep cooking so you don't have to?  The Greg Norman Wine Estates Cookbook will keep 'em cooking for decades, and benefit CureSearch!
  • There's always the St. Jude Gift Shop or HSN Designer Ornament Collection that benefits St. Jude.

  • Hyundai Hope on Wheels has some great coffee mugs and other stuff that benefits COG hospitals.  
  • Get your Aflac Duck here and benefit Aflac Cancer Center and Blood Disorders Service.

and last but certainly not least......

Did you know that Candlelighter's has changed it's name to the American Childhood Cancer OrganizationACCO.  But they will still Light Up the Holidays with Hope this year.  Light Up the Holidays with Hope is one of the  Nation’s largest childhood cancer awareness events. The 10th annual holiday event will be held on Saturday December 11th, 2010 at the Old Post Office Pavilion, Washington DC at 1100 Pennsylvania Ave N.W., Washington DC.

Each year during the December holiday season, a 23 foot tree is placed in the lobby of a building on Capitol Hill, Washington DC. The tree is solely decorated with thousands of gold ribbons (the symbol for childhood cancer), with each ribbon bearing the name of a child who has, or has had cancer.  The tree glitters strong in our nation’s capitol for all to see. You can purchase a ribbon in a child's name at the link.  I can speak to the powerful visual of the ribbons, and the names.

This year Abby Miller will again be performing, here's a great video from last year's event.


PS - Just to be clear, and not to lose the spirit, but: The American Cancer Society funds about 1/2 a penny of every dollar it raises to childhood cancer.   The folks above are focused solely on childhood cancer and typically 70 to 80 percent of the funds they raise are directed to the organizations mission.
