An Honor From Afghanistan

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Earlier this week Bake Me A Wish! received a true gift from the 772nd Expeditionary Airlift Squadron – an U.S. flag flown on their mission this past December over the skies of Afghanistan!  Thank you so very much!  We are more than flattered by the thoughts of these good men and women and will cherish this token of their appreciation.  We’re just trying to decide where to hang it in our office!  :o )

We continue to work to hard through our Operation: Birthday Cake program to show our service men and women overseas that we have not forgotten they are in harms way – that we remember their efforts.  5% of each cake sold on our site helps us donate more birthday cakes overseas to troops with our partner Soldiers’ Angels. This honor belongs to all our readers and customers – a big thanks to you to for visiting and shopping with us.
