We love the holidays! It is our favorite time to bake and also a wonderful time to support an organizations that is very close to our hearts. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer* was founded by two OXOnians (OXO employees) who were inspired by their son Liam’s battle with pediatric cancer, a disease which claims the lives of more children in the US than any other disease. Through the concept of local bake sales, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer provides inspiration and support to allow anyone to easily get involved in fundraising to find a cure for pediatric cancer.
The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap brings together food bloggers from around the world in celebration of all things scrumptious. Conceived and organized by the wonderful Julie of The Little Kitchen and Lindsay of Love & Olive Oil, this is not to be missed holiday event! The premise is this: sign up. Receive the addresses of three other food bloggers. Send each of them one dozen delicious homemade cookies. Receive three different boxes of scrumptious cookies from other bloggers. Eat them all yourself (or, you know, share. If you want. No judgement either way.) Post your cookie recipe on your blog. See everyone else’s cookie recipes. Salivate. Get lots of great ideas for next year’s cookie swap. Rinse and repeat. Best of all, this year, all proceeds from the Cookie Swap will go to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer! Plus, as an added bonus, OXO will send every blogger who signs up in the United States, a “Good Cookie” Spatula! To sign up and find out more head on over to the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap website! Tweeting, pinning, or instagraming? Use the hashtag #fbcookieswap. You have until Nov. 5th to sign up for this wonderfully delicious holiday event!

At OXO, we are always looking for creative ways to highlight our tools and the people who use them. Now we have the chance to do so through our partnership with The Food Network! From October 15 – 22, we’ll be promoting our Sensational Sides Pinterest board with 20 Food Network television spots airing during prime time. We’ll pin our favorite blog posts that feature creative and delicious side dish recipes to the board and will highlight the bloggers behind them. Would you like to have your Sensational Side featured on our board? Please pin your recipe AND tweet about it. In both the pin and the tweet include the hashtag #SideofOXO and tag @OXO. Please make sure to do this for pins you have already shared on Pinterest! As always, we love seeing our tools in action. Be sure to snap a photo of any OXO tools you use to make your scrumptious side dish.Please pin your post by Wednesday, October 10th!
