Cupcakes for Japan!

Hello Cupcake-lovers!

A massive earthquake, the seventh largest recorded in history, struck the east coast of Japan on Friday 11 March.

The earthquake, measuring 8.8 on the Richter scale, triggered a tsunami which hit the east coast of Japan with 7-metre-high waves, leaving a trail of destruction.

At times like this we all wonder what we can do to help.

The British Red Cross
The British Red Cross has launched a Japan Tsunami Appeal, details of which can be found here:

In order to raise money for the British Red Cross, I would like to hold a number of cupcake sales within the city's Law Firms, Banks and Corporations. ALL PROCEEDS of these sales will go to the British Red Cross, and they have confirmed us as certified fundraisers for them. 

What YOU can do to help:

Cupcake companies: If you could choose a cupcake sale which suits you in terms of the date and location, and donate min. 100 cupcakes, that would be FAB! The more Cupcake Sales you can donate to, the better. 

Your business cards and details will be displayed at the sale so everyone will know which yummy cupcakes were donated by you. Your company details will be listed on all e-mails and mailshots that are sent around to publicise the events. What better way to have your company details given directly to many of the city's professional elite?! And the best thing is, it is all for an amazing cause.

Individuals/Firms: Do you work in an office (Law firm, Bank, Accountancy Firm, Consultancy Firm) that is large enough to host a Cupcakes for Japan sale? If so, please get in touch with your Charity Event Coordinators ASAP and let us know who we need to contact to organise the event. 

There is NO COST to the firm for hosting a Cupcakes for Japan sale, all we ask is that you give us the space to host it! 

What is in it for Crumbs! Couture? Other than a warm fuzzy feeling, nothing! If you are wondering if Crumbs! Couture is benefiting financially from this campaign, the answer is no. ALL proceeds are going directly to the British Red Cross. I am doing this as I think it would be a waste to not use my contacts in the city as well as in the cupcake industry to help the people of Japan in their time of need.

If you can help in ANY way, please drop us an e-mail at Every single tweet or status update that promotes these events is a huge help!
