This os an OLD sn that I never xhanged. At the base we retired at ( my dh is retired military) we bake bday cakes for needy military families. Its called Operation Phatntom cakes Ft. Bliss. You can find us on FB. There are a few chapters already up and running and a few weeks ago I started a chapter at Ft. Bliss texas. If you know anyone in Ft. Hood or Ft. BLISS we need volunteers. This is a great cause. Spread the word for us and help us get as many volunteers as possible. Or even just go like the page so we can get our name out there. :-)

Hi! Thats great! Im having trouble getting women to actually sign up and fill out the forms. They all like the idea and like the page but have yet to fill out the forms needed. Its only been about 2-3 weeks and Ive only had a handful of people acrually fill out the forms.

That's frustrating. You'll always get people who like the idea, but won't take the time to actually do the work. For a while we had a problem with people doing cakes, but not wanting to do events to fund-raise and get the name out. Try contacting people who run home bakeries, or stake out a Wilton class at the local Michael's or Hobby Lobby.  I hope it works out for you. And don't be afraid of kicking people out for not doing any work.
