Only two weeks til Cupcake Day
Fundraising for RSPCA Cupcake Day is in full swing, with over $80,000 raised nationwide, and over $28,000 in New South Wales alone.
As the RSPCA receives less than 3% of its funding from the government, it need your cupcakes to raise much needed funds to fight animal cruelty.
“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 RSPCA's Senior Supporter Engagement Manager Sarah Rossiter
Sunrise hose Natalie Barr is the latest high profile name to come to the party, offering up a delicious buttercake recipe (see www.cupcakeday.com.au/recipes).
Over the last few years Natalie’s gradually adopted an eight year old Samoyd, Madonna, from good friends. “They live in a unit so they bring her to our yard and she loves our noisy boy household. We take her to the boys' footy games every weekend and she's a hit, so lovely and well mannered,” she explained.
Madonna joins 10 year old moggie, Flash, in the Barr household.
The power of a cupcake:
• $30 shelters and cares for a neglected dog
• $50 heats a kennel during the cold winter months
• $100 desexes a kitten awaiting adoption
• $240 provides vaccinations and microchips for animals in remote areas
• $350 keeps and RSPCA Inspector on the road fighting animal cruelty.
