Our 20% Project

For our project we are baking cookies and designing them with different caancer ribbons. We are also making braceletes and having inspirational words on them, and coloring them with the colors of the cancer ribbons. We are doing this to try to raise awareness for cancer reasearch. We think that it effects too many people, and we should all help to find a cure. If we inform people, and ask them to donate, we might be able to find a cure.



We would like to thank you for accepting out braceletes. It means a lot, not only to us but also to people who are diagnosed with cancer.
