Cupcakes to the Rescue!

On this experience, Kelly introduces you to two sweet things that are even sweeter together:

- Volunteering for an important cause.

- Making cupcakes.

Kelly bakes hundreds of cupcakes each year to fundraise for the SPCA! In all, she's made more than 1000 cupcakes, and raised more than $4000.

Do you want to fundraise for a cause that's important to you? Do you like to bake? If yes, then this experience is for you!

You'll meet Kelly at her house and decorate some cupcakes for her to sell at fundraisers. You'll even get to take some home! Kelly can also help you plan how to do your own fundraising campaign with cupcakes. She'll show you photos of the cupcakes she has made, and talk to you about the organization she raises money for. It's called the SPCA, and it's focused on helping animals.

Kelly also has a wonderful rescue dog you'll get to meet at the experience!
