The sweetest way to save a life

2016-09-22 06:00

FOR only a R10 donation you can receive a delicious cupcake made with love - and help save a life.

A cupcake sale, where cupcakes will be “exchanged” for a donation towards the Cupcakes of Hope Cancer Foundation will be hosted in front of Slater’s Toy Magic at Fountains Mall in Jeffreys Bay on September 24. Some 1 000 cupcakes will be for sale for R10.

September is International Childhood Cancer Awareness month. During this month Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer, a non-profit company, raises awareness about the early warning signs of childhood cancer and helps to raise funds for children who are fighting the illness.

Through their ‘Cupcakes of HOPE’ events, volunteers, sponsors and bakers share their love for baking for this great cause, thus making the events the sweetest way to help.

Sandy Cipriano, the founder of Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer, says, “Our Cupcake Angels are baking a difference. We have been able to assist more than 350 children since inception. The funds raised go towards paying for medical treatments, travelling costs, school fees, birthday celebrations and other day-to-day expenses of little ones battling cancer.

“We also conduct hospital visits and spoil the patients and staff with lovely cupcakes. It is great to see the smiles on children’s faces when they see a cupcake.”

This charity has also donated to 15 different other charities including CHOC, Cansa TLC and The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust.

Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer will be hosting South Africa’s 4th National Cupcake Day on September 26 at 70 malls across the country.

This is their main fundraising event.
