In order to out reach to kids I have posted my goals and methods on my myspace. Apon request Cupcakes for Cancer will send a pink Cake Box starter kit that includes one free apron with cupcakes logo on it, (additional ones can be ordered) how to instructions and ideas for hosting, coupons for cake mixes and frostings to make their event heavenly, articles and photo's about our events and how to registrar their cupcake bake sale. As of '09 we have 15 individual kids that have requested starter kits in other states and 2 high school groups in state that want to join the cupcake crew!! We are excited to see how it goes!! So we will continue to host and raise funds in our cupcake loving community. We feel like we kinda need a special cute cupcake mobil to do all our deliveries and hall our pink and brown cupcake tent and table around and our cupcake girls to all our local events. We are invited everywhere you can think of -shop openings, movie in the park, easter egg hunts, Marathons, mens and womens clubs, school activites, sports events, haunted houses, Amgen bike time trials in our town with Lance Armstrong, breast cancer events, Autism events, Women Festivals, jewelry shows, book readings, plays, concerts, and dance recitals etc...we always do themes on our cupcakes to match the event! Cupcakes for Cancer will work hard to do the out reach to other cupcake angels in'09.
I plan at least to triple our funds raised this year! We will continue to donate funds to Make@Wish and families that need financial help while their child is in chemo and to pediatric research. Cure Search a national pediatric cancer research foundation has asked us to help them raise funds and they have posted a link to us, to help inspire kids to join us. Also Cupcakes Club , a club for kids that encourages kids to make good choices and moral ones and to make a difference through clubs, crafts and projects is also working with us to help with the out reach! Their site is really cute and they happen to love cupcakes too! It's a perfect match! They also encourage kids to read and have a bunch of cute books written by the creator of the Cupcakes Club that have good moral themes! Cupcakes for Cancer and the Cupcakes Club are planning on dubbing some Cupcake Summer Days dedicated to children every where hosting cupcake sales! Imagine how fun this would be! I think we are off to a good start for our "Frosting hope across America" plan! One last thing-My mom and her Cake Club committee are planning a 1st Annual Ladies Luncheon in May called "Cupcakes and Wishes...a Swanky frilly affair!" in our town with hopes to raise money too!
