Get that oven fired up and those beaters ready – Cupcake Day for the SPCA is back! This year’s Cupcake Day event will be held on Monday, 30 August. Last year, Cupcake Cooks raised over $130,000 for SPCAs across New Zealand – this year they want to do even better, and you can help! Register to become a Cupcake Cook on the website at www.spcacupcakeday.co.nz; you can register as an individual, business, school or team, and the money you raise from cupcake sales on Cupcake Day will go to help animals at your local SPCA.
The SPCA is New Zealand’s oldest and most respected animal welfare organisation, and relies on donations and volunteers to do the awesome work they do. If you’re not a baker, you can still lend your support by buying cupcakes from Cupcake Cooks in your area. If you’re in Wellington, Deb of Boocraft is going all out with Deb & Sam’s Cupcake Extravaganza – you can order their cupcakes online for delivery on the day! You can even make a donation by buying a virtual cupcake.
Generous crafty types around the country have also been helping out by knitting puppy jumpers (super cutely modeled below), so most branches are now well-stocked with those, but there is a need for small blankets. If you’re keen to help out and have some yarn to destash, you can drop blankets in to your nearest SPCA branch. The perfect size is 40 x 40cm.
