This video was a project that I worked on last semester (with two other students) that I felt I couldn’t redo even if I tried. I decided to repost it as part of my video pitch for this blog.
Although the project was complete as a group, the cause is dear to my heart and something that I have been doing monthly for the last six months.
We have so many charities in the world for those families and individuals that are less fortunate. It is several programs that serve the needs of others through food pantries, utility assistance programs, domestic violence shelters, and programs like toys for tots.
Some people look forward to this time of year, Christmas time. Others look forward to Valentine’s day. The most important day to me are birthdays. Birthdays are the only day of the year that belongs to you (except if you are a twin or your sibling happens to be born on the same day).
Since this day so important to me, it lead to me thinking about children that live in domestic violence or homeless shelters. These children didn’t ask to be put in these type of situations yet they are in them. We take for granted the cake and cards we receive or the love that our friends and families show to us. With that said, I wanted to give back but not in the normal sense of giving back. I wanted to think of something that is different to provide to these children. Something that could put a smile on the face of these children that were facing diversity in their lives. Cupcakes for a Cause gives these children a special moment to feel special.
