As part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the six annual Cupcakes for a Cause Week runs September 21-27 to raise money for CancerCare for Kids.
CancerCare for Kids is a program that provides free, professional counseling and support services to children affected by cancer. Parents and children can purchase flowers and cupcakes, or bake and decorate their own virtual cupcakes to help kids with cancer find support.
Floral retailer 1-800-Flowers.com is teaming with local bakeries to sell specially designed products to support children with cancer. Bakeries will donate proceeds from cupcakes bearing the smiley face icon of the CancerCare for Kids program.
1-800-Flowers.com will donate one dollar per person, up to $1,000, for anyone who becomes a fan of their company Facebook page, as well as 10 percent of proceeds from its specially designed Cupcakes for a Cause collection. In addition, 1-800-Flowers.com will make a one dollar donation, up to $5,000, for every virtual e-Cupcake sent.
