Has the thought of a child without a birthday cake ever crossed your mind?
If you're like most people, this thought would never occur to you but it happens all the time. At Cake4Kids, we bake and deliver birthday cakes for foster children and at risk youth. We support all sorts of under-privileged children and youth - they might be in group homes, at a domestic violence or human trafficking agency/shelter, in low income housing with or without a parent or even homeless. We aim to raise these children's self-esteem and confidence with this seemingly simple gift on their special day. It may just be a cake, but the children we bake for know somebody took the time and effort to do something special just for them.
Cake4Kids is powered by an amazing and compassionate group of volunteers. Our bakers are mostly home-bakers. There are no minimum commitments - you choose how often you want to bake a cake for us. It's pretty simple - you choose a cake theme from our online calendar, bake the cake in your home and deliver the cake to one of the agencies we serve. Our volunteers never meet the children we support, but every cake is custom-made for each child and an enormous amount of love is baked into every cake.
Cake4Kids currently operates in Northern California but we do hope to expand to other areas in the future.
Since our inception in 2010 we have baked and delivered thousands of cakes and made endless children smile and feel special. Here are just a few of the thank you's we have received...
“She loved the cake!! She was very excited for the cake. She had a rough month and this really brightened up her week. She shared it with her foster family and with friends at school the next day. The cake was so cute too! It was the perfect fit for her. Thank you for the cake!”
“She enjoyed the cake with her case manager and described it as being moist and delicious. Since she hasn't been able to celebrate her birthday in a few years she was extremely grateful for the cake.”
“I just wanted to thank you for making my son's birthday so happy. I want able to give him a party. I'm a domestic violence victim, a single parent of 4. My income is so low that this cake was the best gift ever to him. I made him pancakes as a special breakfast, and then surprised him with the cupcakes. Thank you so much
