Sweet Treat for a Great Cause!

A kind gesture can go a long way but who would have thought that the kind acts of two Nova Scotia teens would start such a positive revolution? The teens bought + distributed 50 pink shirts after a male ninth grade student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school. This was the boys’ way of taking a stand against bullies. The concept gained traction and has become synonymous to standing up against all forms of bullying….years later the official Pink Shirt Day was introduced + every year the support for Pink Shirt Day gets bigger + louder! And Take Five Café is proud to be part of the movement!

For the NINTH consecutive year, Take Five Café is supporting the amazing Pink Shirt Day campaign through the sales of Pink Cupcakes with all proceeds going to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund.  Over the past eight years, over 12,000 cupcakes have been baked + sold with a total donation of just over $14,000!! And this year we are hoping to sell more!

But we need you + time is running out! Until the end of February, cupcakes are available at all of our 9 Take Five Café locations.  You can drop in + buy one for a friend or two but even better, you can place a large order for business meetings, classroom parties or special events by calling our Catering Department directly: 604.697.9050. Pink Shirt Day is Wednesday, February 28th – the perfect day to have cupcake treats on hand!

Together we can make a difference and stand up to bullying at home, at school or at the workplace. Take Five Café is proud to support such an important cause and hope you will consider doing the same.

So what do you say? Sweet treat for a great cause….the cupcakes are calling!
