TAMPA, Fla. — For the entire month of February, you can treat yo' self to a delicious milkshake and send love to foster children in our community thanks to a partnership between a local bakery and foster care program.

Bake'n Babes releases a new signature Freak Shake every month and for February, they're teaming up with the Heart Gallery of Tampa. The custom shake comes with a card dedicated to a local child in foster care and gives you the chance to send them some love.

"The front of the cards say "Send Love" because we just really want to let these kids know that there are people out there thinking about them, and wishing them well," Julie Curry, Bake'n Babes founder said.

A dollar from every shake purchase will be donated back to the Heart Gallery to help them continue raising awareness and help more local children find their forever families.

The cards focus on eight children for this partnership, including three siblings. The cards detail their personalities, future goals and the things they love most.
