Save some Pups with some Cups (Cupcakes that is!) on February 25th!

Canada’s Inaugural National Cupcake Day for SPCAs & Humane Societies

My parents love their dog as if she is one of their children (and I have to say she gets cooler clothes and more expensive haircuts than I ever got!). And, as I mentioned before, my dad went so far as to make a donation at Christmas on behalf of my parents and their dog!

When I heard about the first-ever National Cupcake Day, I knew that I would be telling my dad! He and my mom love baking and this is the perfect way for them to give back!

National Cupcake Day is set for Monday, February 25th and people are 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! This cool event started up in Australia and has now been brought to Canada as a gift to the Ontario SPCA and the British Columbia SPCA.

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.

National Cupcake Day even has its own official recipe for success!

    What a great idea! Like you said, a VERY easy way to give back – and who doesn’t love a cupcake? 🙂
    It’s too bad my local HS isn’t participating in this event..

    I should imagine that this event was a huge success. I especially liked your comment >>and I have to say she gets cooler clothes and more expensive haircuts than I ever got!<< I had a good laugh at that. My kids would have agreed if we'd have had a dog no doubt, I always cut their hair since there was 7 of them there was no way I could afford to go to the hairdresser with them all.

    This was a wonderful event to have to raise money for neglected and homeless animals. Most are well cared for as pets but, every day, we hear about those who are ill-treated and abandoned. This is a very worthy cause.
