Meet Chinelo Awa, The Baker Providing Birthday Cakes To Orphanages In Nigeria

Your birthday is the one day in the year you expect to be showered with an unreasonable amount of love and treated a bit (well, more than a bit) better than everyone around you. Your friends and family rush to send you birthday wishes and at least one birthday cake is guaranteed.

Buy a cake, change a life

Everyone deserves to feel special on their birthday, but sadly, this isn't the case for a lot of children in orphanages around Nigeria. And this is where baker and founder of Good Cake Day, Chinelo Awa, comes in.

Good Cake Day is a London-based company which makes bespoke luxury cakes, with a pretty great twist: under her #BuyACakeChangeALife movement, 10 percent of every sale goes towards providing birthday cakes to orphans in Nigeria.

Speaking with Precious Awards about what inspired her to support orphanages, Chinelo said:

"I may not be solving world problems, but in my own way, I feel like I am making a difference.

Birthdays are a very special time. When you are alone in the world, getting a birthday cake goes a long way to giving that affirmation that you are loved and valued."
