SOLDIERS RECEIVE SWEET SURPRISE

“Yesterday I received one of your Birthday cakes and WOW, talk about unexpected! I had no idea this was coming. My experience with cakes ranges from grocery store sheet cakes to Betty Crocker so this was an amazing treat. I shared it with everyone in my battalion and we all agreed it arrived moist and looking great. We’ve all received a few packages over here in Iraq but never one that survived the trip except for this one – it was in great shape! On a serious note, it takes a special person and a special company to send cakes around the world to complete strangers like me. It really touched my heart knowing people I don’t even know donated to and made this especially for me to celebrate my Birthday as a way of saying thank you. These are things I’ll always remember, thank you, thank you so much. A special thanks to Josh Kaye, President at Bake Me a Wish, for helping my Birthday turn out pretty terrific (we don’t have Birthday cakes over here), but I got one! You should have seen the looks on everyone’s faces!” – Mike Carbone USAF

I want to express my sincere gratitude to everyone for my husband’s birthday cake. He is stationed in Iraq and has missed being with us for his birthday for the past 2 years. When he received his cake, he was so surprised. He said that it meant the world to him that as far away as he is, we would make sure that he had a birthday cake! He was truly touched (and my husband isn’t a mushy guy). Again, THANK YOU, forgiving us a way to show our loved ones that no matter how far away from us they are, we love them and always keep them close to our hearts. Peggy Cruz and Family Sierra Vista, AZ Letters like these and photo’s of soldiers who have received one of BakeMeAWish. com’s cakes are more than touching – they’re heartfelt and real. The men and women who receive “a little taste of home” are our families and they’re all around the world, protecting us.

Operation : Birthday Cake is a goodwill program created by BakeMeAWish.com and administered by Soldiers’ Angels, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The mission of the program is to see that each deployed soldier receives a birthday cake on his or her birthday, no matter where they are stationed. The program instills morale in our troops and ensures that they know they are in the hearts and minds of Americans back home.

BakeMeAWish.com donates 5% of its online revenue to support Operation: Birthday Cake and has given soldiers reason to celebrate important occasions in their lives in Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea and other countries. Donations are available to the American public through their Freedom Cake products, which sends a cake to a loved one in the states and a matching cake donated to a soldier serving overseas in the recipient’s name.

As Josh says, “Soldiers spend many birthdays and holidays away from their loved ones – we are so thankful we can bring them a little slice of home.”
