National Cupcake Day – the SWEETEST DAY of the year!
Cupcakes of Hope is a non-profit company (NPC 2012/103028/08) and public benefit organisation (PBO 930053726) started by SandyCipriano in 2012. Their mission is to raise awareness of childhood cancer and funds for kids with cancer who are in need of medical and financial assistance. They do this predominantly through their love of baking cupcakes.
What sets them apart from other charities is that they ask volunteers (also known as Cupcake Angels) to “bake” a difference in the lives of their cancer warriors. Cipriano says: “We believe that everyone can make a difference in this world, all you need is a bit of time and loads of love! The only requirement to become a Cupcake Angel is that your cupcakes must be made with love! The dedication and love of our amazing volunteers have enabled us to bless so many kids fighting cancer over the years. Our Cupcake Angels range from as young as three to ninety-year-olds… from scholars to lawyers and pensioners… Anyone can become a Cupcake Angel”.
Cupcakes of HOPE assist up to 70 cancer patients every month by paying towards their medical treatments or other day-to-day expenses like food, clothing and transport for hospital visits. All of the cancer patients go through a stringent registration process, which includes the submission of doctors’ letters specifying their diagnosis.
Becoming a Cupcake Angel is by far the SWEETEST way to SAVE a life!

Last week Cupcakes of HOPE and Mugg & Bean celebrated the launch of the nationwide #GiveMore campaign for children with cancer.
Mugg & Bean is supporting this inspiring initiative, by donating proceeds from the sales of their giant muffins towards Cupcakes of Hope for #cupcakes4kidswithcancer. Mugg & Bean will be driving this initiative throughout their restaurants countrywide where for every giant muffin purchased; R5 will be donated to Cupcakes of HOPE.
To make an even greater impact you will also be able to donate through the gifting option on the M&B app. #GiveMore and donate your reward beans to Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer. Once you download the app you will automatically receive R25 worth of reward beans which you can choose to donate to this worthy cause through a special gifting profile and become a Giant of Generosity.
“We are so grateful to have the support of Mugg & Bean and I am looking forward to the awesome #GiveMore campaign which will be blessed so many cancer children in 2018/2019. Now you have an extra reason to enjoy the giant M&B muffins!” says Sandy Cipriano.
