If you love baking - or eating - you can make a life-saving difference for animals in need in your community this month.
The BC SPCA is calling on everyone who loves animals and tasty treats to join Canada's first-ever National Cupcake Day on Feb. 25 in support of homeless, abused and injured animals.
Across Canada participants are registering as Cupcake Day "hosts" at www. nationalcup-cakeday.ca and baking cupcakes for their friends, families, schools or offices in return for a donation to their local SPCA.
It's an easy and fun way to make a life-changing difference in the lives of animals that desperately need your help.
Once you have registered online, you'll receive a free National Cupcake Day host kit in the mail that includes a poster, sticker, balloons and a fundraising guide. You'll also find great cupcake recipes and decorating ideas.
Supporting the event are Lori Joyce and Heather White, owners of the well-known retail chain Cupcakes, and hosts of the W Network's show The Cupcake Girls. Lori and Heather will be offering their baking expertise, speaking at promotional events and judging cupcake competitions held in conjunction with the event.
Please help us make Canada's first National Cupcake Day a huge success. After all, everyone loves cupcakes, and they taste even sweeter when you know you're saving lives.
