to start the year by making a difference? By getting involved in
National Cupcake Day, animal lovers can help save the lives of animals
in our communities simply by baking cupcakes and giving them away in
exchange for a donation.
National Cupcake Day is cross-country event presented by the BC SPCA,
the Ontario SPCA and participating humane societies. This year, Cupcake
Day falls on Monday, Feb. 27 (the last Monday of February), but animal
lovers and bakers are encouraged to fundraise throughout January and
“I’m excited to test out some new cupcake recipes and decorating
techniques this year,” says National Cupcake Day™ spokesperson and
cupcake crusader, Kristina Matisic.
“What I love about this event is that it’s super easy to get involved
and cupcakes are simple to make. Plus, who can say no to a delicious
cupcake, especially when it’s for such a great cause?”
Last year, Canadians raised more than $615,000 through their baking and
fundraising efforts. Since the campaign’s inception in 2013, $1.85
million has been raised, with proceeds going to participating SPCAs and
Humane Societies across the country.
