Create a Smile

"I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: The only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve." - Albert Schweitzer.

Our mission is a reality only because of the support of our generous donors and voluntees.  There are many ways for you to help Bake a Difference.  

Donate

Monetary donations are critical to our ability to create memories for these kids.  We are currently blessed with a volunteer staff and professionals willing to donate their talents to minimize our costs.  Your financial contribution will be used to reimburse bakers for the cost of ingredients, help us recruit professional bakers and help us cover administrative costs, such as the cost of printing information cards, database and web hosting costs, postage, and corporate filings.

Professional Baking

We are in need of qualified professionals willing to donate their time to create memorable cakes for our kids.  We will promote your bakery through social media and will provide a pin for your cake donation that will allow you to advertise your service to us.

Nonprofessional Baking

Depending on the laws in your state, you likely do not need to be a professional to help.   While we use many nonprofessionals to create our cakes, our mission is not limited to birthday cakes.  We try to use the talent and passion of our nonprofessional volunteers to provide treats to groups of families through our Group Treats program.  Through partnerships with hospitals and non-profit organizations who serve our families, we are able to provide smiles at holiday parties and other events.  

Cookie Club

In addition to cakes, Icing Smiles sends decorated sugar cookies to our medical families to give them a smile on an ordinary day.  This is a perfect opportunity for someone waiting for their first "call to action" or for those of you who only decorate cookies and would like to be a part of Icing Smiles.

Delivery

We are in need of volunteers to pick up and deliver cakes created by our professionals.

Fundraising

We are always looking for motivated individuals willing to sponsor a fundraising event or assist us with grant identification and writing.

Social Networking

We need you to tell your friends and followers.  You are our best advertisers.   

Medical Professionals and Administrators

We need your help to connect us with families we can serve.  You could also be a professional partner with a corporate sponsorship.

Other Professionals

Please consider how your special skills could help us.   We are currently looking for technology specialists, as well as volunteers with bookkeeping, tax, and legal experience.
