Kentucky 4th Grader Celebrating the Holidays Baking “Christmas Candy for Cancer”
Last year, Meadow Lands Elementary School 3rd-grader Raeyln Duncan created a charity called K9 Cookies for Cancer. With the help of her mom Karen, the Owensboro youngster raised over $4300 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Since that time, Raelyn has moved onto 4th grade and has continued her mission by spending the better part of 2022 baking up more K9 Cookies.
However, as we approach the holiday season, she is pivoting a bit. Raelyn just announced that, for Christmas, she will be baking up goodies for humans! Her festive new seasonal mission is called Christmas Candy for Cancer and she is baking up all kinds of deliciousness.
Here's what's going to be included in Raelyn's Assortment Box!
PEANUT BUTTER TRUFFFFFLES
PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
SHORTBREAD HERSHEY COOKIES
Each Christmas Candy for Cancer Assortment Box will feature the six candies above and each box will contain two of each.
The cost per box is $15.00. All proceeds, of course, will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.
In addition to the assortment boxes described above, Raelyn and her mom will be making plenty of fudge too. Fudge will cost $10.00 per pound and will be made to order.
