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 10 counties in California but we are always evaluating new areas to expand into.
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 many thank you notes we have received:
