Here’s how you do it:

  • Visit cupcakeday.org to register for the main event
  • Scroll through this blog to find printable posters to advertise your bake sale, as well as recipe ideas
  • Get baking!
  • Be sure to take a few pictures of your cupcakes and sale set-up; you’ll need these later.
  • Sell your delectable treats and collect donations
  • Email education@anticruelty.org with any questions, and to set up an appointment to drop off your donations. Be sure to bring one of the flyers you used to advertise, a picture of your bake sale, a one-page reflection of your bake sale experience, your service learning tracking sheet, and of course your donations
  • Don’t forget, you can also earn the Baking Buddy through Chicago City of Learning. If you have a CCOL account, you can get a badge code to redeem for your efforts!
