You know what’s even better than the sugary goodness of Cupcake Day? The sweet victory of a completed service learning project! If you are a Chicago High school student with a service learning requirement and a sweet tooth, then you are in luck; you can earn up to 10 service learning hours for participating in this year’s Cupcake Day event. Here’s how you do it:

  • Check out our websitewebsite to learn the bake sale basics
  • 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!

Good luck and happy baking!

Cupcake Day is Coming!

No, you’re not imagining that sugary smell in the air. It is, in fact, the delicious aroma of cupcakes being baked and prepared for the return of Cupcake Day!

The Anti-Cruelty Society’s sweetest annual fundraiser is returning on October 17th, so now is the time to start planning the kinds of tasty treats that you want to make to support Chicago’s homeless animals. As always, we’re looking to recruit individual participants, groups, and business sponsors, so if you would like to participate in Cupcake Day (or know someone who would), now is the time!

To learn more about how to get involved in the event that puts the “fun” in “fundraiser,” please follow this link: http://cupcakeday.org/involved.html.

Try not to spoil your appetite in the meantime.
