We love any reason to do good and eat cake. We also love Tiffany, our Southern belle and Software QA Engineer at the office. So, when Tiffany's birthday was coming up, we thought it would be a perfect chance to celebrate with some yummy goods and a special surprise.
Lisa coincidentally found a great giant stuffed panda to add to our office collection. When we inquired about purchasing the bear, we found out that the bear was being sold so the proceeds could be donated to a non-profit Children's Charity, A World for Children. AWFC is a great charity that helps abused and neglected children find a loving foster home. So, of course, we knew we had to get it. Since it was a donation, we decided to give a little more and made the donation in Tiffany's name.
A couple days before Tiffany's actual birthday (to throw off the surprise), we brought Tiffany a dozen cupcakes in her favorite flavors from Lick it, Bite it, or Both, and unveiled the new panda bear in a bear-naming ceremony, in which Tiffany named the bear Phil.

So if you see Tiffany around, make sure to wish her a happy birth month!
