More importantly, though, this spatula is on a mission. OXO is helping two of their very own raise awareness and funds for kids’ cancer research. In their own words:
Cookies for Kids’ Cancer was founded by two OXOnians (OXO employees), Gretchen and Larry Witt who were inspired by their son Liam’s battle with pediatric cancer. All forms of pediatric cancer combined claim the lives of more children in the United States than any other disease – more than asthma, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis and AIDS combined.
They were shocked to learn that the main reason over 25% of kids diagnosed with cancer do not survive is because of a lack of effective therapies. And the reason for the lack of effective therapies was simple: lack of funding.
This year, we are thrilled to announce a formal partnership with this organization so close to our hearts, one that will enable us to play an even larger role in the movement to find a cure for pediatric cancer. In 2011, on top of our personal efforts to support this worthy cause, OXO will donate up to $100,000 to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.
Please visit the Good Cookies site for more information and ways to help. It can be as easy as buying a spatula for your own kitchen, or as involved as hosting a bake sale. Your involvement is up to you, and you can make a difference!

**Disclosure: I was given two Good Cookie spatulas by OXO–one to keep and one to give away. They also provided postage to mail the prize to the winner of the giveaway. What I decided to say about their product was completely up to me and unprompted by OXO. I am not getting paid to use or endorse any products.
