In North America, we are very blessed with having a plethora of opportunities. We have access to health care, housing and food… the basic necessities of life. It is heartbreaking to know that there are people around the world that have very little compared to us. The cards could have been dealt differently… and ‘they’ could be ‘us’. It is interesting how it has even become ‘they’ and ‘us’… when in actuality, it is ‘we’. We are all responsible for each other. It is ‘Just Right‘ to do good.
The Cupcake Place will be sponsoring the Just Right Project: Toronto on Thursday, April 21st. This initiative works to raise money to build homes for the poor in Sorsogon province, Philippines. It takes only $2300 USD to build a home in the village that they call Aytona Village. Groups of volunteers and villagers work together to build these houses that will be passed down from generation to generation. The project is similar to Habitat for Humanity.

Although most fundraising has taken place in Los Angeles, the people of itsjustright.org in collaboration with their Toronto network have organized an event here in Toronto. Now, there are many individuals and businesses that have hopped on board the ‘Just Right‘ train to help make the event successful.
The social event is happening inside Blondie’s – 1378 Queest Street West in Toronto. There will be a minimum donation of $10 and ALL proceeds will be going to the ANCOP Foundation who oversees the building of these homes. If you are in the area (or not) come out and support this wonderful cause. You can have a cupcake while you’re at it.
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Peace, Love and Cupcakes
