CARE is working with Vivanista, a charitable fundraising resource, and Sprinkles Cupcakes to spark a movement during the month of March, encouraging people everywhere to host Parties For A Purpose™ that raise awareness and funds for CARE. Party hosts can download a simple digital toolkit, containing fun party ideas; trivia and discussion questions, a social media guide and Sprinkles Cupcakes signature recipes. In addition to contributing a portion of cupcake and mix sales to CARE, the first 50 people to sign-up to organize a party using Meetup will receive a free gift from Sprinkles Cupcakes.
There will be gifts too. Packages, actually. CARE is planning a special announcement: A modern twist on the original CARE Packages that defined CARE’s early years and grew into a symbol of American generosity.
