Cupcake Kids - You Rock!

Seriously folks. I'm going to have to ask that you sit down for this one. Today's Cupcake Kids events (yes, there were many) in support of SixtyFeet.org went beyond what any of us even dared hope for or, sad but true, even pray for.

There were a total of 5 Cupcake Kids events today in 2 different states. Yes, the event in Colorado was hailed out, even though I thought folk in Colorado ate hail for breakfast. Regardless, that event is postponed temporarily. We have totals from 3 out of the 4 events today and it's getting late, so we'll post the grand total tomorrow. Of the 3 events here in Georgia - 2 in Atlanta, 1 in Marietta, we raised a total of $7,700 and the number is still growing and doesn't include one of the Marietta sales. Some of the leftover cakes have been shipped off to Sunday afternoon soccer games with more being baked as we speak to create yet another Cupcake Kids event tomorrow, so we'll just see where we end up after tomorrow. But that's not bad for one day.

Hey, I told you to sit down remember. Ok, while that number is sinking in a bit, here's some photos.

"Cupcakes! Lemonade!" You can hear it, can't you?
Almost too cute to eat... almost.
That's some good marketing in Spring Lake

What helpful counter staff

Cupcake Kids: The Next Generation

Like I said, we never dreamed a lemonade and cupcake sale would come to this. But God did, obviously.  It seems God has some big plans and we are excited to be a part of it. Thank you to everyone that helped out today. Thank you Cupcake Kids. Thanks be to God.
