How to send cake in the mail
One of the most simple ways to encourage small group leaders and to cultivate a Lead Small Culture is by remembering and acknowledging their birthday. Who doesn't love a birthday? Maybe you can't Fedex a cup of coffee and slice of yummy cake to your SGL's but YOU can mail them this fun little treat.
Coffee and Cake in an envelope:
The Birthday Cake gum I picked up at Target. I love Project 7 gum because it's a brand that seeks to do good in the world.
I have a stack of $5 Starbuck Cards I keep on hand for Volunteer Appreciation.
Remember to add the right amount of postage.
