Time for more “Hugs from Home”!

For the third straight year, Cinnabon® is partnering with Operation Gratitude to help raise money to send “Hugs from Home” care packages to our deployed heroes overseas.

Now through October 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 Cinnabon® coupon, valid
at participating bakeries until December 31, 2012.

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 work with an organization that supports those who serve in our
military,” said Kat Cole, Cinnabon® president. “Our partnership with Operation
Gratitude is one that our franchise partners and bakery employees look forward to
every year. Sending our troops sweet memories of home during the holidays is
something that we can all feel great about doing.”

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.
