Bake It Happen: Help Raise Money for a Cure for Metastatic Breast Cancer

Despite all the breast cancer awareness campaigns, I didn't know there is no cure for Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC).

I also didn't know that more than 40,000 people die each year in just the U.S. from MBC. 

I also had no idea that of all the breast cancer fundraising, not much of that funding goes towards MBC research.

I'm participating in the Bake It Happen campaign to help raise money specifically to fund MBC research. Bake It Happen is an annual fundraising campaign, and this year they're partnering with The Cancer Coach Foundation, which is volunteer run, privately funded, and all donations are matched by the institutions they fund - not to mention 100% of donations go directly to the cause.

Here's how to participate in Bake It Happen and help raise money:

Every time you bake one of these recipes and share the photo on social media using the hashtags below, money is donated to fund MBC research.

That's it. Bake one of these delicious recipes - modify it way you want - and then share on social media.

Here are all the ways you can share:
    • Post your baked good photos to the Bake it Happen Facebook page @ubakeithappen using #bakeithappen
    • Post your baked good photos to your own Facebook page with #bakeithappen
    • Tweet about Bake It Happen with something like: “All October when you bake and share, $5 gets donated to Metastatic Breast Cancer research! #bakeithappen”
    • Instagram your delicious baked good photos with #bakeithappen to your profile and tag @bakeithappen00 as well.
    • Snap photos of your Bake It Happen on snapchat.
    • $5 donated for every photo that is shared! 
If you don't like social media or baking (which seems unlikely if you're reading this), no worries -- you can donate directly here.
I followed the Compost Cookies recipe and made Halloween Compost Cookies which were a big hit at my house.
A big thanks for inviting me to join in on Bake It Happen and for all you do to help put an end to MBC.
