We know—cupcakes aren’t the answer to any of life’s looming problems, but they sure do brighten people’s day.

As the pandemic stretches out month by month, our appreciation for our healthcare heroes continues to deepen. They aren’t fighting an easy battle, and even the smallest acts of kindness can help to ease their burden.
At EHOB, we honor their dedication to patients and pledge to continue supporting our healthcare professionals as best we can—whether it’s through our products or just a weekday cupcake run.
