It might seem totally random that I'm posting about cupcakes today, but it's not, actually. I've just learned about Cupcake Kids and I'm all over it. So here's the basics. This year Cupcake Kids takes to the street on May 5, 2012 (though you can feel free to host one any time). That's still a few months off, but I'm starting to think about it today cause when it comes to cupcakes I don't want to mess around. I want the perfect stand with the perfect cupcakes, liners, and toppers. I'm just into that kind of thing. So we'll just be chatting about that as it gets closer. Today I'm just letting you know about it and getting your juices flowing. If you'd like to sign up to host a cupcake sale you can do so here.
If you aren't familiar with 60 feet, it's a great organization. You should check them out. The content is sort of hard. We're talking about imprisoned children living in horrible conditions in Uganda. 60 feet is bringing hope and restoration to those kids by creating homes, medical clinics, schools and libraries, and child sponsorship. They do a million different ministries over there. I'm excited about my kids helping other kids. Abby is 3 and she'll probably be eating the merchandise, but Will is 6 and a very compassionate little guy. This is right up his alley. But I think as the big sale gets closer we can all discuss how much information is too much information and how to set the tone for empathy without totally scarring our kids. I'd love to hear your thoughts on that. But like I said, today we're just brainstorming and daydreaming about sugar, sprinkles, and warmer weather. If you sign up for a booth come back and tell me in the comments section. I would LOVE to see who will be out there with us!
