Great Fundraising Idea: Cupcake Camp LA

By on Thursday, November 18, 2010
Sweet treats will benefit nonprofits this Saturday in Los Angeles. Cupcake Camp LA will benefit nonprofits and let the public sample cupcake confections from a variety of bakeries at a family-friendly event that is reasonably priced.

Many of the amateur and professional bakers participating in the event will be debuting holiday and wedding themed cupcakes. Yum!

Proceeds will benefit:
–  Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue – an equine rescue organization that works to dispel myths about rescued horses – many of whom are not old, sick and tired – and could go on to other pursuits besides being a delicacy on someone’s plate.

– InvisiblePeople.TV – an organization that shares the story of the “invisible” among us – the homeless. What we learn through their stories is that they are people too.

– American Tortoise Rescue – an organization that works to save turtles and tortoises, thousands of whom are illegally brought into the United States to be sold as throwaway pets. The organization offers permanent sanctuary to abandoned and lost tortoises, as well as those that are confiscated by law enforcement and require temporary housing.

One of the nice things about the website for this event, is they have short profiles written for each charity, as well as YouTube videos – so attendees can check out the charities being supported. Site visitors can also donate individually to the charities or through the event website.

There’s also Cupcake Camp LA badges available on the site to spread the word, as well as recipes. It’s a fun and low-cost way for the public to raise money to help some great nonprofits and have fun.
