Cupcakes for East Africa

Hello Crumbs! Fans,

Earlier this year Crumbs! Couture organised a campaign called Cupcakes for Japan to raise money for the British Red Cross relief efforts in the aftermath of the Japan Earthquake/Tsunami. We were helped by so many kind people who organised sales in their offices as well as wonderful cupcake makers who donated hundreds of cupcakes to be sold. In total we raised £4271.25 for the British Red Cross which is a fantastic effort!

A combination of conflict and drought have meant that people in East Africa are currently facing crisis conditions that have left them malnourished, displaced and in need of medical attention. Save the Children and Oxfam, among other charities, have launched East Africa Appeals which can be seen here:

I would like to set up a campaign, Cupcakes for East Africa, which will involve cupcake sales with the proceeds being split between Save the Children and Oxfam.

If you would like to help our campaign and feel that your office/workplace could host a charity cupcake sale, please e-mail us on . If you are a cupcake-maker and would like to get involved with cupcake donations, we would also love to hear from you.

For more information on our previous Campaign, Cupcakes for Japan, please click on the "charity" topic on the right.

Thanks so much

The Cupcaker x
