Sugaholic’s program “Cupcake4Cause”, which started in May 2011, is a constant effort to support and donate funds, cakes or cupcakes to different organizations in Dubai, who strive to help young adults with special needs. Below was our first effort to create an awareness about this mission.
Sugaholic started in May 2010 with the intention of raising funds through a bakesale to sponsor the education of a child through an organization in India called Deepalaya. We started with the sponsorship of one child and then with the help of our program ‘Cupcakes4Cause’ went on to sponsor the education of two girls, both at Deepalaya.
For all those who would like to help educate children through Deepalaya’s program, please visit their website www.deepalaya.org
The case study of Anjali, the child we sponsored though this mission with the help of our dear customers and SolidariTEA who helped us raise a huge chunk of the funds. To thank them we provided each of the ladies who attended the SolidariTEA event with a discount voucher and a custom made SolidariTEA cupcake.
SFS – SPECIAL FAMILIES SUPPORT, DUBAI, UAE
In 2011, Sugaholic associated itself with SFS – Special Families Support, a group that was formed so that families with children with special needs can get connected with other families in similar situations to share their hopes, their strengths and their challenges.
Sugaholic held its first cupcake workshop for the young adults at SFS along with providing a cake for the party that kick started their summer camp.
We also helped raise funds to sponsor the education of a boy named Younus who then went on to study art at Mawaheb from Beautiful People – The first art studio for young adults with special needs in the Middle east. That’s Younus with one of his paintings.
