RSPCA puts the ‘fun’ back into fundraising
It’s that wonderful time of year again!
The time of year cooks of all ages whip out the flour, sugar, eggs and butter and the smell of cake, butter-cream and creativity fills the air. The time of year you can eat your weight in sweet goodness and not feel guilty about your gluttony as it supports a fantastic cause!
I am of course, talking about the RSPCA’s third annual Cupcake Day.
Cupcake Day this year will be held in homes, schools and offices around the country on Monday the 16th of August. Sales of cupcakes decorated with everything from butter-cream and fondant, to chocolate, cream and whatever else the imagination desires, will benefit our little furry friends the RSPCA kindly helps each year.
This year sees an addition of great prizes to be won by fundraisers: a Kymco Scooters package is up for grabs for one lucky cupcake cook (for every $100 raised, receive an entry into the draw); those who bake and decorate the most creative cupcakes (voted for online) will win a special prize packs from the RSPCA and Cupcake Day sponsor New Idea; and of course the individual or team with the most money raised in their state will win the coveted Cupcake Day trophy!
Whether you enjoy baking or not, Cupcake Day definitely puts the “fun” back into fundraising. So do your part and show your support for a great organisation that contributes time after time to the community and all creatures great and small! Sign up to become an Everyday Hero (or just contribute to Brio Group’s Everyday Hero fundraising page!), and make sure you sink your teeth into a cupcake (or six) on the 16th of August. You’ll feel very sweet if you do!
Happy baking & donating!
