Cupcakes for a Cause

Yesterday, March 22nd, Sprinkles locations throughout the country held a fundraiser

Red Cross Red Velvet

to benefit Japanese relief efforts after the devastating earthquake and tsunami. Sprinkles Cupcakes created the “Red Velvet Red Cross” cupcake from which 100% of the proceeds of each sale went directly to help the people of Japan.

I decided to stop by and pick up a cupcake to show my support and take it to Amos Gelb, the director of the Semester in Washington Journalism Program to get his thoughts on Sprinkles cupcakes. :) As you can tell from the pictures, he loved it He also had a great suggestion, although the event at Sprinkles is over, there are still many ways you can support the people of Japan. His advice however, was to wait a few months and then directly  contact a school or church in Japan and send your support there so that you know it is going directly to the people who need it most.

Amos and his Cupcake                                I think he approves!

Hope everyone is enjoying the first few days of Spring! This weekend I’m hoping to attend the National Capital Area Cake Show for The Georgetowner, they have a Cupcake Challenge that evening that I am hoping to attend. :) Anyone else planning on going? Let me know! Thanks!
