A Mother’s Day Gift that Gives Back to Mompreneurs in Africa

This mom supports her family with coconut oil

What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than to buy your mom a gift that supports other mothers. Basa Body all-natural coconut oil products make the perfect Mother’s Day gift for so many reasons.

About Basa Body

Basa Body products are made with organic coconut oil that comes from Coast Coconut Farms, a micro-franchise business that provides sustainable employment, management and ownership opportunities for the rural people of Kenya. Coast Coconut farms produces coconut oil for cooking and for Basa Body products. When you buy either line of products ayou are helping moms in Africa support their families.

But How are the Basa Products?

I received a Kiss Me Pack that includes three products that no only smell good, they feel really good too. The Basa Body Lotion was supple yet not greasy. The Body Stick was perfect for my cuticles and elbows. And the Mint Trouffle Soap was oddly refreshing, if not hunger-inducing!

Basa Body Kiss Me Pack

Two reasons to Buy Basa Body products for Mom

First, purchase a Basa Body Kiss Me pack between now and May 12, and use the promotion code "momitforward," to receive an additional 10% off. That makes it a fab Mother’s Day gift for under $30.00!

Look ahead to the end of school and get your child’s teacher a Basa Body or Coast Coconut Farms gift as a thank you that goes a little further.

A cake for us, a cake for a soldier, and a pen pal too

There is a lesson to be learned eating cake, and it has nothing to do with nutrition...or lack thereof.

How would you feel living far away from family and friends, often risking your life, on your birthday? I bet something as simple as a surprise birthday cake would make you feel pretty damn happy...even for just a few minutes.

That's what Bake Me A Wish! had in mind when they started the Freedom Cake program. When you purchase a Freedom Cake from Bake Me A Wish for someone here, a second cake is sent to a soldier serving oversees for their birthday!

My family was given the opportunity to experience the Kids Freedom Cake: a cake was sent to our home and the Twofer then wrote a letter online that will be delivered to a soldier along with a birthday cake for them!

We decided to share the deeeeelishious cake from Bake Me A Wish! with some friends and explain the Freedom Cake to all the kids.

Let me just pause here to explain how yummy this cake was. When I say my mouth is watering just remembering the chocolate, the icing the....{slurp}. And my husband who is not an big sweets guy and basically never eats dessert...ate an entire piece. Here's what the kids thought of it:

I will be ordering Gourmet Birthday Cakes at BakeMeAWish .com! for every birthday and holiday from now on. If I'm going to eat cake - I want it to be good and this was lip-smackin, mouth-watering, tounge-cleeking, eyes-rolling, don't-you-dare-touch-my-piece cake!

The next step was to go online to BakeMeAWish.com and register to 'meet' our soldier. It will take a few weeks but we will be assigned a soldier who will receive the cake in our name, and with whom we can start a correspondence.

Many kids, including our group, have already had the opportunity to write letters to soldiers. Bake Me a Wish Freedom Cake is the opportunity to wish a soldier Happy Birthday when they really need it, and maintain contact to have a pen pal.

I can't wait until we get our soldier/pen pal and the girls are excited to find out how they enjoyed their cake!
