The Ontario SPCA’s annual National Cupcake Day fundraiser is going virtual this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To keep people safe during COVID-19, the Ontario SPCA Sudbury & District Animal Centre is asking supporters to raise funds for animals in need in their community by baking a difference at home with the National Cupcake Day Decorating Contest.

“National Cupcake Day is the sweetest day of the year, and we need your help to support vulnerable animals across Canada,” says Jennifer Hughes, manager, Ontario SPCA Sudbury & District Animal Centre. “We’re challenging you to a bake off, so preheat those ovens and get ready to show off your cupcake decorating talents.”

The cupcake with the most votes in each of the four categories wins, so ask your family and friends to visit the National Cupcake Day website before Feb. 22 to vote for your creation and make a donation to your online personal fundraising page.

The Ontario SPCA and participating SPCAs, humane societies and rescue groups are charitable organizations that rely on the generosity of donors to change the lives of vulnerable animals. By taking part in National Cupcake Day and raising funds for the participating animal organization of your choice, you are providing urgently needed care and shelter for homeless animals, said the SPCA in a news release.
