AUSTIN, Texas (FOX 7 Austin) - Bake a Wish started in Austin in September 2009 with an original mission of providing free birthday cakes to abused/neglected/abandoned children and youth who would not otherwise receive one.
Their very first delivery was to a young man for his 19th birthday. Bake A Wish received a thank you note from the agency, who said it was the very first birthday cake he’d ever received. Hard to imagine, isn’t it? From that moment, they realized the importance of their mission.
