I just happened to be looking around on mypoints.com at different vendors and stumbled across http://www.bakemeawish.com/. They actually have a section called "Operation Birthday Cakes" for sending a cake to an APO or an FPO.
What?! How did I not know about this last month? Darn. My soldiers birthday was earlier month and I sent him a package... (more about that later) but I wish I had know about Bake Me A Wish.They send them out twice a week to military addresses and they keep them refrigerated so they can arrive safe and sweet.
I clicked on the icon to read soldiers responses and I found myself getting all weepy, so I had to stop. Quickly.
What a great way to get a birthday cake to your favorite soldier when he/she can't be home for his/her birthday! I'm touched when I see things like this and I thank God that there is so much out there offered for our men and women that fight for our freedom.
Has anyone tried this?
Man, now I want to send him one just for the heck of it. :)
