BYOU Magazine’s cover girl Stefanie Scott, who stars as Lexi Reed on the hit Disney Channel show A.N.T. Farm, thinks it’s really important to get involved in charity work. She loves to bake too, so when she heard about the charity Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, she had to get involved, and now is their official Cookie Ambassador!

Here’s what Stefanie has to say about charity work and her involvement with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer:
“I think it’s extremely important to get involved in charity work, especially when you’re young – it helps build a better YOU. Every time I do charity work, I feel it puts things in perspective. You become less self-absorbed and less affected by the ‘drama.’ You realize how grateful you are for your life, and if you’re going through a tough time, you realize your problems may not be so bad after all. Knowing how much you helped someone feels really good. Being able to brighten someone’s day will brighten your day as well – it helps them and helps you too. It changes the world!
Right now, more than 40,000 kids across the country are battling cancer. I want to do my part to raise awareness and funds to help give them hope for a bright tomorrow. I love that Cookies for Kids’ Cancer makes it easy and fun for anyone to help. You can find a way that works for you! I like to bake, so a bake sale makes sense for me. But kids across the country are getting involved in lots of ways! Be a Good Cookie and host an event at your school, church, or local business. Together we can, AND WE WILL, make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer.” ~Stefanie Scott
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS of Cookies For Kids’ Cancer: While battling their son Liam’s fight with cancer, Gretchen and Larry Witt were shocked to learn of the lack of effective treatments for pediatric cancer due to lack of funding. With the help of 250 volunteers, Gretchen baked and sold 96,000 cookies, raising more than $400,000 for research. Sadly, they lost their son to stage IV cancer, but their charity Cookies for Kids’ Cancer lives on with supporters in over 4500 cities worldwide to help other children and their families.
