As you may or may not know, we are a proud Marine Corps family. A few weeks ago, I discovered Wire A Cake, who can send cakes for every occasion to troops at home and abroad! With hubby gone, I was looking for a way to send him something special for his birthday. I'm always dismayed at the high number of companies who do not ship to APO/FPO addresses. Not only is the postage the same as if you are mailing in the U.S., our deployed men and women still enjoy the comforts of home.
April was Military Child Month and Wire A Cake parterned with Military Avenue for a Cake Event that I entered. I was even more excited to discover them. Moving to a new area in general, is stressful enough, so imagine as an active duty family to move from one duty station to another every few years. Military Avenue was created by a team of military and internet veterans to alleviate some of the stress by offering community information about more than 240 military installations. They also have listings of more than 5,000 businesses that offer some kind of military reward or discount.
Long story, short, we won the Cake Event and my boys received their own cake! I didn't tell them about it, they love getting mail, so how thrilled were they when they received a package. It was an honor being selected, but to learn about 2 more military resources is priceless.
