About National Cupcake Day

National Cupcake Day™ is the first-ever, coordinated Canadian event to support local shelters, SPCAs, and Humane Societies. In 2014, animal lovers across Canada raised over $450,000 in support of their favourite societies.

Register for National Cupcake Day and host your own National Cupcake Day Party where you bake cupcakes for your co-workers, friends and family. Your guests donate to the participating animal welfare charity of your choice, in exchange for a cupcake, and raise critically-needed funds for animals that are abused, abandoned, neglected or no longer wanted. Your Cupcake Day party can be held at your workplace, home, schools* or local community centre anywhere where you think people will enjoy a treat!

National Cupcake Day is Monday, February 23, 2015, although you can hold your Cupcake Day Party on whatever day works best for you in January or February.

The event is supported by the Ontario SPCA and BC SPCA on behalf of participating local shelters, SPCAs, and Humane Societies.

Fight cruelty with cupcakes and “bake” a difference for animals!
