Sweet news from the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society: National Cupcake Day goes virtual
The annual fundraiser for animals in need will take on a new format during COVID

Stouffville, ON (Jan. 18, 2021) – Cupcakes aren’t cancelled, but National Cupcake Day™ will look different this year, as the nation-wide fundraiser goes virtual in support of the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society, as well as participating SPCAs, humane societies and rescue groups across Canada.

To keep people safe during COVID-19, the Ontario SPCA is asking Canadians to raise funds for animals in need in their community by baking a difference at home with the National Cupcake Day Decorating Contest, presented by Milk-Bone® and Robin Hood®.

“National Cupcake Day is the sweetest day of the year, and we need your help to support vulnerable animals across Canada,” says Daryl Vaillancourt, Chief, Humane Programs & Community Outreach, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. “We’re challenging you to a bake off, so pre-heat those ovens and get ready to show off your cupcake decorating talents.”

The cupcake with the most votes in each of the four categories wins, so ask your family and friends to visit the National Cupcake Day website before Feb. 22 to vote for your creation and make a donation to your online personal fundraising page.

The Ontario SPCA and participating SPCAs, humane societies and rescue groups are charitable organizations that rely on the generosity of donors to change the lives of vulnerable animals. By taking part in National Cupcake Day and raising funds for the participating animal organization of your choice, you are providing urgently needed care and shelter for homeless animals.

To take part in National Cupcake Day, visit nationalcupcakeday.ca to register, fundraise and submit a photo of your cupcake creation for a chance to win some great prizes.
