Baking Smiles, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that provides free birthday cookie cakes to under privileged children who are deprived of simple joy such as celebrating their birthday. Our mission is to give them at least one day to celebrate in a year and make good memories that will help them through their challenging times. We rely on our awesome network of volunteer bakers who make this effort successful for us.
We founded this organization with a passion of creating happy memories for children. As a blessed family, we share lot of joyful moments with our 2 children. One of the most cherished moment every year is when we celebrate their birthday. It’s a celebration of another year of kindness, wisdom, and love they grow around them. It’s the day they made our family more precious. While we live our “close to perfect” life every day, we look around and see many parents that want best for their children but cannot afford. Even such simple joy as a birthday cake.
As we began to research the opportunities for a non-profit organization that makes a difference in child’s life, it became quite glaring where the need for help is. A recent report from PA Department of Education state that more than 19,000 children are homeless just in the state of Pennsylvania. They are a victim of domestic violence, poverty, lack of family incomes, debts, parental negligence, and many other situations that are beyond their control.
We founded our “Baking Smiles” mission in the state of Pennsylvania and in future, we plan to grow across US and internationally to serve many other under privileged children. We strongly believe that every child deserves to be happy and we are committed to make their memories happier.
