Are you going to Cupcake Camp this weekend? I am! Cupcake Camp is a fundraising event for charity. Here is how it works: bakers – professional or amateur – donate cupcakes and visitors pay a small donation to eat the cupcakes. All profits of the event are donated to a charity selected by the Cupcake Camp organizers. THAT’S IT!!! Easy, right?! Cupcakes + Charity = a happy stomach and a happy heart! This years Cupcake Camp is benefiting The Leap Foundation.
LEAP (Life Enhancement Association for People), is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to enhancing and enriching the lives of people around the world by providing specialized medical services. The primary goal of LEAP is to serve others in the name of Christ. LEAP is comprised of volunteer plastic surgeons, urologists, eye surgeons, anesthesiologists, orthodontists, nurses and support staff. Dedicating time, expertise and often their own resources, these volunteers endeavor to bring free surgical care to children and adults born with deformities. Read more on the LEAP Foundation Website.
