Help Fight Animal Cruelty with Cupcakes on February 25th!
Announcing Canada’s Inaugural National Cupcake Day™ for SPCAs & Humane Societies
Calling all bakers and animal lovers! The first-ever National Cupcake Day™ is set for Monday, February 25th and everyone is invited to bake their best cupcakes, host a cupcake party, share cupcakes with family, friends and colleagues, and collect donations all in support of the SPCAs and Humane Societies across Canada. Initially launched by the RSPCA in Australia, New South Wales – National Cupcake Day™ has been brought to Canada as a gift to the Ontario SPCA and the British Columbia SPCA. Sponsored by Petsecure Pet Insurance, Reynolds® and BMO Bank of Montreal, National Cupcake Day™ is designed to help raise much needed funds for all fuzzy friends, big and small, that have been abused, abandoned or in need of help.
“We’re encouraging people to register online at www.nationalcupcakeday.ca and then to bake cupcakes and host a National Cupcake Day™ party on February 25th, with all proceeds going to support the Ontario SPCA and its communities,” explains Marc Ralsky, Director of Community and Donor Development for the Ontario SPCA. “We hope that people will encourage their family and friends to donate online and to support their efforts by attending a local National Cupcake Day™ party, or hosting an event of their own. It’s a fun and easy way to make a life-saving difference in the lives of animals who desperately need our help.”
