Cinnabon Supports the Troops!

posted on Sep 30 2011 3 Comments

Note: This 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.”

For more information about the Hugs from Home promotion, please visit www.facebook.com/Cinnabon To find Cinnabon locations near you, go to http://cinnabon.findlocation.com/ To sign up to use Foursquare, please visit https://foursquare.com/signup/

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!

    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!
