This is why we need to keep doing what we are doing:

Icing Smiles is a nonprofit charity that provides custom celebration
cakes and other treats to families impacted by the 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 provides a temporary escape from worry and creates a
positive memory during a difficult time.
Memories have magical powers. Long after the cake is gone, the memories
linger-- memories of the kindness of a stranger, of the art of the design, of
the sweet smells of a special treat, of the smiles and laughs, of a normal
childhood experience so often stolen from these children. These memories are
why we say, "It is so much more than a cake."
Please take a moment to look at what has been accomplished by our American counterparts at http://www.icingsmiles.org/ and help us bring these types of smiles to those who need us most here in Canada.
MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER
I would like to personally welcome you to the Icing Smiles family!
We are thrilled that you have chosen to use your talents and passion to expand our mission to Canada.
The work is hard and the hours long but we understand that the impact of our cakes
extends well beyond the cake itself. We have received stories of families finally having a reason
to celebrate, and of children going through treatment with smiles rather than tears, and of siblings
finally having something special just for them. The stories are endless a constant source of motivation. We
know that you will feel the same.
Thank you for your commitment to the cause and for your patience as our team has prepared for
incorporation. The journey has been a long one, but we are fully committed to helping you.
