Pink Cupcakes are waiting for you!

As we promised in January, our Pink Cupcakes are back! For the SIXTH consecutive year, Take Five Café is supporting the amazing Pink Shirt Day campaign.  Over the past five years we’ve made and delivered more than 7,200 cupcakes during the month of February and have donated just under $9,200! That’s a lot of cupcakes. And we can’t wait to make even more this year!

But we need you! Cupcakes are selling at all of our 8 Take Five Café locations. Or, if you would like to place a larger order for classrooms, business meetings or special events, you can order on-line on through our website www.takefivecafe.ca or call our Catering Department directly: 604.697.9050. All proceeds will be donated to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund in support of Pink Shirt Day and anti-bullying programs across British Columbia. And we will be selling the delicious cupcakes until February 28th!

There are other ways to support Pink Shirt Day – a little something for everyone!

Check out this Clearly Contacts feature blog that highlights some of the way you can support Pink Shirt Day.

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!

Pink Cupcakes for Pink Shirt Day 2015

For the SIXTH consecutive year, Take Five Café is pleased to announce we’ll be supporting the amazing Pink Shirt Day campaign once again.

This 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 Orphan’s 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 25th 2015. All our Take Five Café staff will be wearing the official Pink Shirt Day shirt.

Let’s all commit to a Bully Free Life.
