Why do I deserve to win the iPad2?
My name is Claudette, and in September 2011, I opened my Custom Cake Business. On top of my regular clientele, I take advantage of every opportunity to donate cakes to my church, True Life Church in Universal City, TX. I also am a volunteer for Birthday Cakes 4 Free, San Antonio Chapter. They are a non-profit organization that reaches out to professional bakers to provide birthday cakes to children, due to no fault of their own, would not normally receive a birthday cake. Most recently, I dontated over $500.00 in baked goods to Austin Bakes for Bastrop. On October 1, 2011, this organization held one of the largest bake sales I personally had ever seen and raised over 12,000.00. The proceeds of this bake sale then went to The Austin Community Foundation Central Texas Wildfire Fund. I constantly use profits from my cake orders to buy supplies for my donated cakes. With the holidays coming up, I anticipate the need for my donations will be increased and the $500.00 would be a greater help than you could imagine. I have been blessed with a talent that I have never taken a class for. I am also blessed with the want to serve and bless others. Winning this contest would provide me with the means to make an even greater impact on the commumity as every penny would be used to provide the less fortunate with an unexpected treat. And Chef Uniforms, you could be the BIGGEST part of this, by selecting me as the winner. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
