Pink Cupcakes for Pink Shirt Day 2014

For the FIFTH consecutive year, Take Five Café is pleased to announce we’ll be supporting the amazing Pink Shirt Day campaign once again. Over the past five years we’ve made and delivered more than 5,500 cupcakes during the month of February. That’s a lot of cupcakes. And we can’t wait to make even more.

Pink Shirt Day is an incredible campaign that was started by two Nova Scotia teens who distributed pink shirts at their school to take a stand against bullies who were picking on a young boy who wore a pink shirt. The concept has gained traction and has become synonymous to standing up against all forms of bullying.

This year, for the entire month of February, Pink Cupcakes will be on sale at all Take Five Café locations with all proceeds donated to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund in support of Pink Shirt Day and anti-bullying programs across British Columbia. Enjoy a decadent chocolate cupcake with classic pink cream cheese frosting, made fresh daily at our East Vancouver central kitchen.

So if you need a sweet treat or your office is catering lunch, add a pink cupcake and know that you’re supporting an inspiring cause. Don’t forget we deliver as well. Contact our Catering Department to arrange deliveries or order online starting February 1st.

And take a stand and take part. Commit to wearing pink on February 26th 2014. All our Take Five Café staff will be wearing the official Pink Shirt Day shirt. Let’s all commit to a Bully Free Life.
