Our Service to Military

Hi Everyone –

I would like to tell you about Operation Baking GALS. It is a national group of individuals who bake once a month to show support to our military while they are fighting for our country.

Operation Baking GALS (Baking GALS) was founded in July 2008 by a blogger named Susan (doughmesstic), who decided she was going to send some bake goods to her cousin and asked if anyone would like to join her. Within minutes of asking her mailbox was being filled with people wanting to do it! And the rest is history…

In March of 2009, she asked me if I would like to take over the organization and I was thrilled to take over the wheel.

Each month starts a new round. There are team leaders who “host” a person in the military. Their job is to recruit team members to bake for their team and then when the time comes to ship give the team members the address. Each round participants read about each of the members of the military being “hosted” and chooses which team(s) they would like to send to. We also have added baking for those wounded and recovering back in the United States. Everyone signed up for the round bakes and ships together within 10 days. We are working together as a country to show our support. You do not need to have a group near you to join.

Ways you can help –

       * Join our site and start baking!
       * Visit our site to make a donation.
       * If you would like to show support, but do not want to bake, feel free to contact us and we will do it for you! If you would like to add a card, you can do that as well.

If you have someone who is serving in our military and currently in a war zone, please contact us and nominate them! We would LOVE to spoil them.

We also have a facebook page. Be sure to check it out!

Sincerely,

Lyndsay L.

The Head Baking GAL
