The {Sneaky} Cakes Christmas Giving/Getting Contest

Put your hand up if you know someone currently fighting cancer.  Put your hand up if you’ve lost someone to cancer this year. Now look around you…WAY too many hands up, aren’t there? Cancer does not take a break, not even for Christmas.

Most of you know I’m a cancer survivor myself which is why I feel so strongly about supporting cancer research, and why {Sneaky} Cakes will continue to support the Ride to Conquer Cancer.

This year, I decided to do something different to raise money for cancer research.  Why? Because it’s Christmas time and along with all the good things to eat, we all like to do charitable things during the holiday season that can make us feel good the whole year through. And what wouldn’t feel better than to someday go a year without losing anyone to cancer. That is a possibility within our lifetimes, but it takes money and that’s where you come in.

Here’s what I’m asking for…donations to the BC Cancer Foundation, via my husband’s Ride to Conquer Cancer page. (Why HIS Ride page?  Because he’s my hero, that’s why!) I’m asking for donations to the Ride, and offering one dozen assorted macarons to one lucky donor, by random draw (or maybe two, or maybe more…let’s see how this goes!).  You GIVE a little money, and one of you is going to GET some delicious macarons!

To break it down for you…

What you GIVE:

  • A donation to the BC Cancer Foundation

What you GET:

  • The warmth of doing something charitable
  • The excitement of being part of a contest
  • My thanks and appreciation
  • And one of you is going to get A DOZEN ASSORTED MACARONS


Click here to make your donation, then just come back here and post a comment, letting me know you did it. One donation/entry per person. Some lucky person is going to win a dozen assorted macarons, shipped to anywhere in North America!  If I get enough donations, I will award two prizes, or maybe more!

**If you can’t afford to donate, you can still help.  Please please share the link with your social circle!

Contest closes December 14th and the macarons will ship out on the 15th.  Just let me know where you’d like them to go!
