Cake for Kids Cambodia started with sugar, flour, eggs and many late nights - it was Susan's passion for baking. Soon after a trip to Southeast Asia in 2006 Susan decided to marry her two passions, baking and children and Cake for Kids Cambodia was born. Since 2009 we have impacted the lives of over 500 kids by raising close to $40,000 dollars and volunteering 1,000s of hours in country!
Cake for Kids cambodia's Mission
We're a small charitable organization that raises money to help the kids of Cambodia through education and life skills enhancement.
What we do is prepare delicious, homemade baked goods for you (baked by Susan, taste tested by Tom), in exchange for charitable donations. All of the money raised goes toward books, computer labs, water filters, and essential items to support the children of Cambodia. 100% of your donations go to the children. Donations are not used to pay for any baking ingredients, shipping or personal expenses. Your custom order is baked and shipped with a note informing the recipient that a donation was made in your name. The magic is that the cakes we bake literally change lives and we love that. We hope you'll be a part of the adventure, success and impact we have!
Cake for Kids Cambodia is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Your gift is tax deductible as a charitable contribution The recognition by the IRS as a 501(c)3 organization is retroactive to all donations made since 9/2/2014.
