RSPCA NSW staff (from left to right) - Natasha Wilton, Sinead Deevy, Rebecca Vella and Rachel Partridge eagerly await RSPCA’s Cupcake Day on 20th August 2012.
The RSPCA urges people to help thousands of animals across the nation by registering for the sweetest and biggest fundraising day of the year, Cupcake Day, on Monday 20 August 2012. Get the baking mitts out, the party planning hat on and round up friends, family and work colleagues to help raise much needed funds for animal welfare!
RSPCA NSW receives less than 2% government funding so relies heavily on the kindness of public donations to continue their meaningful operations. Fundraising initiatives like Cupcake Day for the RSPCA are vital to increase donations and raise awareness about animal welfare.
“RSPCA NSW has one of the largest animal shelters in the Southern Hemisphere in Sydney, so we need all the support we can get from the community,” said RSPCA NSW Events Manager Sarah Rossiter. “Cupcake Day is a fun and easy way to get together with your friends or co-workers and show your support for a great cause.”
All funds raised from RSPCA’s Cupcake Day will go towards the shelters, clinics, Inspectors and animals in the state. As little as $10 can help provide animals with toys to assist with their behavioural development. $40 can help microchip cats and dogs to ensure they find their way back home. $100 can help subsidise medical treatment for an injured animal and $200 keeps an RSPCA Inspector on the road fighting animal cruelty.
Get involved today by registering online to set up an RSPCA Cupcake Day fundraising page or donate to an existing registered party host. A Cupcake Day party can be held any time in August anywhere in the community, at work, school or at home. Party hosts can access information online about planning their party, fundraising tips, how to bank funds and can download invitations, posters, stickers, recipes and certificates.
“Anyone can get involved; you don’t have to be a professional baker! We encourage everyone to use cage-free eggs when baking their delicious treats - for everyone who donates to enjoy,” said Miss Rossiter.
This year’s national competitions include the early registrations draw (register before 6th August), return funds competition, top individual fundraiser and top team fundraiser. All funds must be returned by 1st October 2012 to be in the chance to win great prizes.
