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! These funds were donated to Reach for A Dream, CANSA Vereeniging and towards paying for the medical bills of three Cancer patients.
The biggest lump sum was donated to 14 year old Gerhard, who lost his leg due to Cancer (R60 000 was donated to pay for his new prosthesis). R25 000 was donated to Reef Carneson and R20 000 for Baby Mark Scott. We also used some of the funds to grant some special wishes (a family holiday for a terminally ill child, sports memorabilia for a Cancer Warrior, a birthday party and gifts for a special 4 year old patient, etc.)
The only requirements were that the cupcakes had to be made with LOVE...
And if you have a look at all the cupcakes donated, you will see that they were AMAZING.
We received so many compliments and people said that they could even taste the LOVE in our cupcakes.
In September 2012 we hosted South Africa's first National Cupcake Day 4 Kids with Cancer at 20 venues across South Africa. We raised an amazing amount of R507 000! Thank you to all our sponsors and Cupcake Angels that made the event possible! We were also able to hand out over 60 000 leaflets with the Early Childhood Cancer Warning Signs.
