Humane Society raises money with cupcakes for animals in need
National Cupcake Day is exactly one month away, which means it’s time to get out your mixing bowls, pre-heat your oven and get ready to sprinkle the love for animals in need, according to the local human society.
With National Cupcake Day coming up on Feb. 24, the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes is asking the public to do something sweet for vulnerable animals in their community by hosting a cupcake party.
Last year HSKL raised just over $8,000 for animals in need. The concept is simple. Choose a date, bake cupcakes and collect donations at your workplace, home, school, club – anywhere you think people would enjoy eating cupcakes or hold a virtual party by registering online at nationalcupcakeday.ca.
The public is also invited to participate in Cupcake Day by baking and donating to HSKL’s in-shelter parties on February 23 and 24 or by dropping by to enjoy cupcakes, coffee and pet snuggles. “Cupcake Day is our biggest fundraiser of the year and everyone is encouraged to join us,” says Henny Venus, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes.
“Getting involved by hosting a party, baking for us or making a monetary donation, you will be changing the lives of the animals that come into our care.”
Presented by the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society, National Cupcake Day is a coordinated Canadian event to support local shelters, SPCAs, and humane societies. Proceeds from HSKL’s campaign, go directly to the animals in their care. The proceeds do not leave Kawartha Lakes.
