Bob’s Red Mill has long been a favorite of mine when it comes to gluten-free mixes & products. Just when I thought I couldn’t love them anymore, I opened my email to find they had started “Bob’s Birthday Club”, a rewards program for children with Autism. Many children with Autism follow a gluten-free, casein-free diet.
Read below for more information:
Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods is helping families with Autistic children celebrate their birthdays nationwide. In partnership with Autism Speaks, the company today announced the launch of its Bob’s Birthday Club, a birthday rewards program for children with Autism. By making a minimum donation to Autism Speaks, adults can enlist a 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 can sign up here.
- 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 small cooking apron
- A measuring cup
The kits are limited to the first 1,000 people who make donations.
While I realize that this may not apply to all who read our blog, I wanted to share this information for a couple of reasons. First, I want to recognize Bob’s Red Mill as an outstanding company that I willingly support. Not only have they been a leader in the gluten-free food industry, but they are an employee-owned company that is committed to giving their customers the best products. Second, with the rising rates of Autism diagnosis, it is likely that most of us know someone who has a child with Autism. Spread the news or consider donating to Autism Speaks and signing up that child for the birthday club. Remember how much fun it was to get mail when you were a kid?
