Cupcake Day is almost here!

We have had a cupcake filled week so far here at The Anti-Cruelty Society!

Every day this week staff and volunteers have been baking and selling cupcakes here leading up to the official community bake sales happening this upcoming Monday at our main location and at the EAC. I guess you could call it a daily cupcake appetizer before the main cupcake course. Needless to say we haven’t had a problem getting our sugar fixes in this week.

Also, we would like to give a shout out to two special Cupcake Day bakers-Erin Glade and Jess Piper! They will be holding bake sales on October 17th and donating the proceeds to the lifesaving efforts of The Anti-Cruelty Society. Thanks again Erin and Jess!

Are you getting yourself in gear to bake and sell treats this Monday? If so, we want to hear about it! Comment on this post to tell us what you’re making and where you’ll be selling your treats.

We Love Cupcakes!

We received a special little note from one of our on-site pups – she demanded we share it with you:

Hi – my name is Dauphine – and I wanted to tell you about my puppy-love for cupcakes!

You see, everyone around here has been talking about this big event, Cupcake Day, for weeks! Cupcake this, cupcake that, we can barely stand all the treat talk around here! All they gave me was a cupcake look-a-like – I want the real deal!

Despite the sad cupcake stand-in toy, I’m super excited to know that people from all around the city will be baking this weekend to sell cupcakes to help pups like me. My siblings and I were brought up to The Anti-Cruelty Society from Knoxville, Tennessee when we were only a few weeks old – and boy are we glad we came! If we had stayed in Appalachia I don’t know if we would have made it, and now, we’re one step away from our forever homes!

So from me and all my brothers and sisters – thank you. Thank you for reading our Cupcake Day blog, thank you for baking this weekend, thank you for selling on Monday and thank you for supporting shelters like The Anti-Cruelty Society. You’re, quite literally, a lifesaver for dogs like us!

Thank you and happy baking!

Love,

Dauphine and friends.

Ideas: Cupcake Day in the Office

office fundraiser

If you’re one of the many people gearing up to bake this weekend for Monday’s Cupcake Day fundraiser – thank you! We’re so excited to know you’ll be putting on your own DIY bake sale to benefit the animals of The Anti-Cruelty Society!

We’ve been getting lots of questions from people on where they should be selling their home-baked goodies. The short answer is: wherever you want!

But if you’re having a hard time choosing – why not try the office? Print up a Cupcake Day poster, hang it in your break room today, and delight your co-workers with tasty treats! Set-up a donation collection bin and you’ll find that your peers are more than willing to throw in a few bucks for a cause (and yummy cupcake too of course!).

Are you planning on selling this Monday? Where will you be hawking  your baked goods? Share your plan with us!
