I just read about this amazing non-profit organization, Icing Smiles, who is in the running to win a 25K grant from Pepsi - their idea is to provide custom cakes & treats to families impacted by a critical illness of a child to bring a little joy into their lives! The smiles on the faces of the children on their website as they're receiving their cakes are priceless and brought tears to my eyes!!
Icing Smiles Mission:
"Icing Smiles is a non profit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by critical illness of a child. We understand that the simple things, like a birthday cake, are luxuries to a family battling illness. Our goal is to create a custom cake for the ill child or their sibling that will provide a temporary escape from worry and create a positive memory during a difficult time."

I plan to volunteer myself as a baker if they'll have me! Please vote for this worthy cause (it'll only take a click or two!) - it'll help bring a smile to the faces of families around the country who are facing heartache on a daily basis.
Thank you so much for taking the time...
ps - Thank you to Amy Atlas for twittering/blogging to get the word out about this amazing organization!
