Desserts for the Deserving II

Do you know someone who has been having a rough time lately and could use a little positive energy or someone who takes the initiative to help others and you would like to have their selfless acts recognized with an unexpected thank you? Tomorrow morning at 7:00am CST  (8:00 EST, 5:00 am PSTi am baker will be asking for nominees for Desserts for the Deserving II, a simple and creative way to support those who could use a little pick me up or thank you.

If you are a baker, crafter, or someone who would like to send a thoughtful gift or note to a deserving person, next week i am baker will be asking for volunteers to make or purchase something to send to these deserving people. What started out as an altruistic idea and single blog post has turned into a movement inspiring hundreds of people to help others. Join GNG in helping i am baker spread a little love by sharing her post, submitting a nomination, or becoming a volunteer.

A few days ago, I met a mom and young daughter at the park who are staying in the area while their husband/father, a U.S. soldier, is recovering at Walter Reed from injuries that he sustained in Afghanistan. They have been here for several months, and have another 6 to 9 months to go. There is no way to thank this family enough for their service and sacrifices for our country, but I will be nominating them tomorrow and taking this opportunity to say thank you. I will also be volunteering to bake cookies for another deserving family.

How will you participate? Please leave and comment...and inspire others.
