Cinnabon Supports the Troops!

Note: Join in to support the troops with MORE “Hugs from Home” via the 2012 promotion — info here: The 2011 promotion is now over, but we wanted to share the wonderful results! Thanks to Cinnabon and its generous customers, $50,000 was donated to Operation Gratitude to help support deployed troops, wounded warriors and military children! THANK YOU so very much! Read about more wonderful donations here.

For the second year in a row, Cinnabon is partnering with Operation Gratitude to help raise money to send “Hugs from Home” care packages to our deployed heroes overseas.

October 1 through 31, Cinnabon fans can support this heart-warming cause by making donations at participating bakeries. For every $1.00 contribution, they will receive a $1.00 “Cinnabuck” valid on their next visit.

Cinnabon patrons can also use their cell phones to support the troops. For every Foursquare check-in to a bakery, Cinnabon will make a $1.00 donation to Operation Gratitude, for a maximum donation of $10,000.

“We are proud to spread the warmth of our baked goods to our guests throughout the year,” said Kat Cole, Cinnabon president. “It’s important for us to serve those who serve others, so we wanted to send our troops some sweet memories of home during the holiday season.”

We hope you will join in to support deployed service members via this delicious fundraiser! Every donation and every Foursquare check-in will help send more care packages this holiday season!

About Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home. Each package is filled with food, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, as well as personal letters of support. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of the Military and First Responder communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for civilians anywhere in America to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation. Each package contains donated product valued between $45 and $100 and costs our organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.6 Million Care Packages.

    Contratulations and kudos to Cinnabon! We need more organizations to get behind the support, regardless of ideology and realize that our troops sacrifice. We also need more to unite us-not divide us!
