Beginning January 1, 2011 a total of 365 sugar cookie & cupcake bakers/decorators and bloggers from across Canada and the United States will take turns doing a guest post here at Frosting for the Cause. Once a day, every day for a year you will be treated to a new and talented blogger who will showcase their home-made, hand-decorated cookies, cupcakes and sweets or all kinds together with their recipes. Almost everyone, everywhere, has been touched by cancer in one form or another. The guest bakers will also share in a very personal manner with readers of Frosting for the Cause, about a woman in their life who had to face this terrible disease head-on.
By signing onto this project every guest baker/blogger has committed to not only donating a batch of their cookies or cupcakes to their local Women’s Hospice but they have also committed to making a personal $25.00 donation to either the Canadian or American Cancer Society to be directed to research projects that are working diligently to find cures specifically for cancers that affect only women. If there is no Women’s Hospice in the area of the guest baker/blogger then the baker commits to donating their baked goods to their local hospital or Cancer Society office. Through the generous volunteer commitment of the 365 guest bakers on Frosting for the Cause, we will not only raise awareness of all of the cancers that currently affect women, but we will raise a total of $9,125 alone for research into these diseases.
You Can Help
Why stop there? Imagine if all of our readers donated a little bit, and then mentioned on their blogs about the goals of the Frosting for the Cause project. Imagine if they tweeted about it and then their readers and followers tweeted and everyone who read about this project decided to make a donation. A lot of money could be raised and a lot more research could be done. If you love to bake and decorate sugar cookies, cupcakes, cakes and cookies of all kinds, then you are encouraged to join in on this project. If you don’t bake but you are reading this now, why not pass on this blog link to a friend or two or more of yours and have them do the same.
