Yes- it ACTUALLY exists! An official day in the year dedicated to all those home bakers and cupcake lovers. And what better excuse to enjoy these delicious treats and satisfy our sweet tooths than to do it for a great cause!?
National Cupcake Day is a Canadian event created to support local shelters, SPCA’s and Humane Societies. It is a month of fundraising for animal lovers and bakers (whether they be professional or hobbyists) across the nation to show their sweet support.
And it’s as simple as it sounds!
For this nation-wide event, during the month of February, you simply bake cupcakes for your friends, family or clients and host a National Cupcake Day Party. Here, your guests donate to your participating animal welfare charity in exchange for your delicious cupcakes.
All money raised is for abused, neglected or abandoned animals in desperate need.
So how can you get started?
All participants can register for FREE at www.nationalcupcakeday.ca and wait for your Host Welcome kit to arrive in the mail (usually takes 2 weeks). In order to help with making your National Cupcake Day Party a success, some of the resources in the package are also available to download here: http://support.ontariospca.ca/site/PageNavigator/Cupcake14_resources.html
Then you’re ready to start personalizing your online bakery where you can send emails to all your friends and co-workers to announce your participation in National Cupcake Day. Be sure to upload pictures, fundraise and get others involved! Supporters can also donate online and you can track orders here as well.
Last but not least, you can start baking your cupcakes and planning your National Cupcake Day party! In order to make your party extra special, balloons and posters are available in your Host Welcome Package to help you decorate your venue.
