National Pro-Life Cupcake Day

National Pro-Life Cupcake Day is not an ordinary holiday: it is dedicated not only to a sweet treat, but also to a serious problem in our world – abortion. According to statistics, 55 million women in the world have abortions every year. And this is almost 21% of all pregnancies. Many organizations on this day turn to women and ask them to think about the dire consequences!

History

National Day was created by Cupcakes For Life to talk to the fair sex about abortion. These are not instructive and screaming conversations, on the contrary, they are filled with calmness, sincerity and friendliness. Cupcakes here are a symbol of unborn children – by preparing them today, we pour into the molds the regret that the child could not appear in this world.

Cupcakes are a sweet way to start a serious conversation. Although not all participants initially make contact with the organizers, in the process they begin to trust, express their opinion and tell stories on this topic. Many women do not make contact at all, literally running away from information.

And now for some real history of cupcakes: in 1796, the recipe for cupcakes was published in a cookbook by Amelia Simmons. They were also mentioned in the early 19th century. Time passed, and cupcakes were tightly intertwined with the cultures of different countries. We love these little desserts and are happy to serve them to others.
