Cancer in Children

Press release (11 September 2012)

Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer

is a Non-Profit Company (NPC) registered as “Cupcakes of HOPE” (2012/103028/08). The aim of the company is to raise awareness surrounding childhood cancer and funds for children affected by this terrible disease. This is a community driven project and through our love for cupcakes, we are changing people’s lives.

In 2011, Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer set a new World Record for the most Cupcakes on display – 21 000. Through this achievement we were able to raise R200 000, which was donated to Reach for A Dream, CANSA Vereeniging and towards paying for the medical costs of three cancer patients.

This is such an amazing NPC that touches people’s hearts. It is not just children that benefit from our campaign, but each and every volunteer gets something back. It is an amazing feeling and more REWARDING to rather GIVE than to RECEIVE. We can ALL make a difference, one cupcake at a time…
