SHANE Rattenbury officially launched Cupcake Day for the RSPCA ACT today at CIT Reid with chefs and students baking up a storm to join the fight against animal cruelty.
Along with RSPCA ACT CEO Tammy Ven Dange, Shane sampled the creations made on site and chatted with talented pastry students that not only have a passion for sweets but also helping animals in need.
“It is fantastic to see the support of the students here at CIT for Cupcake Day. Most people don’t realise that every cupcake made and sold does make a difference. One cupcake sold can buy a dog toy, 15 cupcakes help us vaccinate a puppy against the deadly parvo virus,and 150 sold can help us prosecute an abuse or neglect case. Thank you to all of the people who have registered and who plan to register so that we can continue to care for the more than 7000 domestic and native animals that come to us each year,” Tammy said.
You can register, bake and fundraise to join thousands of other cooks all around Australia coming together to support animals in need. Of course, cupcakes are also a great excuse to gather friends for a morning tea at your workplace, school or neighbourhood, and to spread the word about all the good work undertaken by RSPCA ACT.
Get your baking trays ready for the 18th August and visit www.rspcacupcakeday.com.au to register.
