Angels needed for National Cupcake Day, in aid of childhood cancer


DO you enjoy baking and helping those in need? If so, Cupcakes of Hope needs you. This non-profit organisation that supports children with cancer across the country is celebrating its 10th birthday this year by calling all South Africans to come together and bake in honour of lost loved ones and cancer survivors this National Cupcake Day, 1 October 2022. 

While Childhood Cancer is an extremely challenging journey, Cupcakes of Hope offers a light-hearted, fun and rewarding way to stand in solidarity with cancer survivors, help those who are currently undergoing treatment, and give back to the cause. Volunteers, fondly known as Cupcakes Angels, are those who generously offer their time to bake a difference or those who support the fundraising campaign. 

Hosting a cupcake fundraiser is an easy way to bring family, friends and colleagues together and honour a loved one or a survivor. From office fund raisers, to community cake sales to simply rallying friends and family together to bake, every act of kindness contributes towards the needs of children fighting cancer. 

The funds raised will enable Cupcakes of Hope to continue the much needed support it provides to hundreds of young cancer patients and their families every month. This includes covering their medical bills and other essential needs, from nappies to nutrition and every in between.

National Cupcake Day events will be hosted at 58 malls across the country on Saturday 1 October. Dozens of Cupcake Angels have already signed up but there is a great need for more. You can get involved by either baking and donating cupcakes, or by visiting one of our participating venues and for a small donation you will receive a delicious cupcake made with love. 

To sign up as a Cupcake Angel, email [email protected], or for more details on the work done by the organisation, click here or go to Cupcake of Hope’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
