From the press release:

The BC SPCA is calling on everyone who loves animals and tasty treats to join Canada’s first-ever National Cupcake Day on Feb. 25, 2013, in support of homeless, abused and injured animals in B.C.

“We’re encouraging people to register online at and then to bake and offer cupcakes by donation on Feb. 25, with all proceeds going to support the BC SPCA in British Columbia,” explains Farrah Rooney, manager of fundraising events for the BC SPCA. “People can host National Cupcake Day parties in their homes, bake cupcakes to take to school or the office or offer them by donation in the community. It’s an easy and fun way to make a life-saving difference in the lives of animals who desperately need our help.” Once participants have registered they will receive a free National Cupcake Day host kit in the mail which includes a poster, sticker, balloons and a fundraising guide.

“We hope people will encourage their family and friends to donate online and to support their efforts by attending local National Cupcake Day parties, collecting donations or hosting events of their own,” says Rooney.

Supporting the event will be Lori Joyce and Heather White, owners of the well known retail chain Cupcakes and hosts of the W network’s show The Cupcake Girls. Lori and Heather will be offering their baking expertise, speaking at promotional events and judging cupcake competitions held in conjunction with the event.

Event sponsors include Petsecure pet health insurance, Reynolds and BMO.

“This is really a fun, grass-roots way to make a difference for thousands of animals in need,” says Rooney. “Everyone loves cupcakes, and they taste even sweeter when you know it’s for a good cause.”
