Military families can send a free Bake-Me-A-Wish cake to a loved one
New York, NY - With thousands of U.S. troops deployed overseas, the Armed Forces Foundation (AFF) and BakeMeAWish.com, are offering a unique opportunity for military families, individuals and corporations to send our troops a message of love and support on Valentine's Day.
Administered by AFF, a national non-profit benevolent Foundation under the Department of Defense's America Supports You Program, BakeMeAWish.com will deliver gourmet gift cakes to our nation's service men and women, each containing a personalized message.
The effort is dedicated to ensuring that military personnel stationed overseas are reminded just how valuable their contributions are to this country, and that they are in our thoughts and prayers during this special time of the year.
"BakeMeAWish.com is proud to work with the Armed Forces Foundation to keep the morale high among the troops on Valentine's Day by delivering gourmet cakes to loved ones celebrating or thinking of those they cherish away from home," said Josh Kaye, President of Bake Me A Wish.
The Armed Forces Foundation's President, Patricia Driscoll, echoed similar sentiments regarding the partnership, "We are very excited to partner with Bake Me a Wish and have the opportunity to send a taste of home to our troops overseas. These men and women are risking their lives and are away from their families for extended periods of time; a special cake from home can brighten their day and let them know they are thought of."
Each handmade cake is made to order and topped with the finest imported Belgian chocolate plaque. For Valentine's Day, the Belgian chocolate plaque is inscribed with "LOVE" in pink lettering. Each cake is delivered in an elegant gold gift box and specially packed to guarantee freshness.
"By working together we can recognize the men and women serving overseas on a very special day and hopefully, bring a little extra joy to their lives by giving them the opportunity to celebrate life and good times with their comrades," Mr. Kaye concluded.
