Instead of retail therapy she has this wonderful cause which takes underprivileged and sick children on a one day trip to Disneyland. Providing them with a new outfit, a small camera and other things beyond their realm.
Cupcake is just a small pea in the pod that is this charity, however she has set a goal to personally raise enough to send at least one child on the trip herself.
I think she's pretty surprised how very generous people are at donating goods for raffles. Well known for her constant generosity, coupled with her passion for helping women and children it's not surprising they trust her!
I see the sparkle in my daughters eyes and know she is happiest when she is giving. My mother was the same, such a humanitarian! As a child I was always walking over a casserole, soup or a small pie for the elderly lady next door. Every single thing given of pure love without expectation.. Over the years I have done the same yet not to the degree my daughter has. However I must say it probably fills us up just as much as the recipient....if not more!!

What is the last unexpected thing you gave or received that made you feel really good?
Yesterday, ten days later, a customer brought in a large box of donuts for the employees where Beardo works! The Chief in charge asked Beardo to remove the box from his sight since he is fighting type two diabetes and would love nothing more than to chow down on one of those melt in your mouth yummy to the tummy, cellulite enhancers!!

|This is our Easter Buddy and these are the shenanigans that go on in our house! For the record that is a pristine beard, groomed daily with scents made by Cupcake.|
Beardo toted the huge box with only three doughnuts home on the bus for Cupcake! Delayed gratification prevailed..... she was so excited about the pretty Easter donut. After several bites, she handed if off to Beardo! All that beautiful goo wasn't as tasty as it looked! Sure glad it was a freebee! She was still thankful that it made such a pretty instagram photo.
Have you ever delayed gratification only to be disappointed in the end?

For those who celebrate Easter I hope you have a glorious celebration full of love and laughter!! Enjoy the little things!!
