Today marks the launch of a new program at Bob’s Red Mill- Bob’s Birthday Club. We’ve partnered with Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, to bring birthday kits to children with autism. By making a minimum donation to Autism Speaks, adults can enlist an autistic child in the club, and in advance of that child’s birthday, the child will receive a Bob’s Birthday Club kit filled with gluten-free cake mix and other Bob’s Red Mill treats.
Here’s how Bob’s Birthday Club works:
- Anyone interested in signing up a child for Bob’s Birthday Club should visit www.autismspeaks.org/bobsbirthdayclub.
- With a donation of $30 or more made through the website, an adult can register an autistic child for the club.
- Then, as that child’s birthday nears, he/she will receive a special Bob’s Birthday Club kit, which includes:
- Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Vanilla Cake Mix
- A recipe card puzzle
- A kid-size cooking apron
- A measuring cup
The kits are limited to the first 1,000 people who sign up.
We couldn’t be more excited to support such an amazing organization and bring a little extra birthday joy to some deserving kids. We’ve partnered with Autism Speaks in the past and supported their “Light It Up Blue” campaign earlier this month by lighting up the Morrison Street Bridge in Portland, Oregon (see picture below).
