Red Cross Cupcakes for a Good Cause

Today, I would like to share a cause that’s very IMPORTANT to me. 

As all of you know, Philippines was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan a few months ago.

There were A LOT of casualties and a lot of damage.

I know it’s not being covered in the news heavily now but, after reading about the aftermath and current situation in this article, my heart is aching 🙁

My heart goes out to everyone who has been affected by this natural disaster and those who are STILL being affected.

So, I am now a very PROUD supporter of Red Cross that’s providing the people of Philippines with HELP and ASSISTANCE.

I can’t be there in person to help out but I can help by giving a DONATION to Red Cross, even if it’s just a small amount.

After all, every little bit counts…

To show my appreciation for Red Cross and all the hard work they are doing, I made these chocolate cupcakes with the Red Cross logo and even did a simple tutorial 🙂
