Nothing beats cute, cuddly animals and cupcakes.
The BCSPCA is taking the tasty treats and using them to help support homeless, abused and injured animals in the province during Canada's first-ever National Cupcake Day.
By registering online at www.nationalcupcakeday.ca, people can bake and offer cupcakes by donation on February 25, with all proceeds going to support the BCSPCA.
Farrah Rooney, manager of fundraising events for the BC SPCA says people can host National Cupcake Day parties in their homes, bake cupcakes to take to school or the office or offer them by donation in the community.
"It’s an easy and fun way to make a life-saving difference in the lives of animals who desperately need our help.”
Once participants have registered they will receive a free National Cupcake Day host kit in the mail which includes a poster, sticker, balloons and a fundraising guide.
“We hope people will encourage their family and friends to donate online and to support their efforts by attending local National Cupcake Day parties, collecting donations or hosting events of their own,” says Rooney.
Locally the Kelowna BCSPCA branch is hosting a cupcake day sale Feb. 23 and 24 starting at noon. (While supplies last and available by donation).
