STOUFFVILLE, Ontario, Jan. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Get out the mixing bowls and preheat those ovens! National Cupcake Day™ is coming up on Monday, Feb. 25 and the Ontario SPCA is looking for Cupcake Champions who will “bake” a difference for animals in need during this delicious fundraising event.


  • Cupcake Champions
  • Cupcakes
  • Cupcake Day party location
  • Party date
  • Friends, family or colleagues
  • Funds for animals in need


National Cupcake Day parties can be held anywhere, and on any date in January or February. Guests donate to the participating animal welfare charity of the host’s choice and enjoy cupcakes, raising critically-needed funds for animals that are abused, abandoned, neglected or no longer wanted. If cupcakes don’t make your mouth water, plan a party with the treat or healthy food alternative of your choice.

Presented by the Ontario SPCA, National Cupcake Day is a collaborative fundraising effort supporting animal welfare societies across Canada. Proceeds from National Cupcake Day help the Ontario SPCA support our furry friends, big and small, who have been abused, abandoned, neglected or no longer wanted.  The campaign has raised $3.15 million to date by animal lovers across Canada.

“National Cupcake Day is a fun and easy way to change the lives of animals in need in your community,” says Daryl Vaillancourt, Chief, Humane Programs & Community Outreach, Ontario SPCA. “By baking cupcakes and hosting a Cupcake Day party, you’re raising much-needed funds to give homeless animals care, love and a second chance.”

To get involved, register for free at and start planning a National Cupcake Day party on a date that’s convenient for you. Plan your National Cupcake Day Party for home, work, school or anywhere you think people would enjoy eating cupcakes.
