Next week, on Wednesday, October 9, pro-lifers across America will be participating in an awareness campaign called National Pro-Life Cupcake Day.
The event simply involves the distribution of free cupcakes to the general public or school campus to celebrate the lives of the unborn. The idea is similar to giving someone a birthday cake, but because the unborn are often never given a birthday, Cupcakes for Life seeks to honor their lives before they are born.
Here’s how Cupcakes for Life describes its initiative of National Pro-Life Cupcake Day:
Cupcakes are such sweet and fun things to have at events and for people that are cared about, especially for birthdays! With this in mind, we want to help others realize not every child has the chance to have a birthday because of abortion, and that we care about them. We thought these children’s lives should be remembered, so we picked October 9th as a national day to recognize them and raise awareness about the issue of abortion and the impact it is having. By using cupcakes we are able to reach out to the general public in a warm, non-confrontational way and use it as a segue to raise awareness, start conversation, and potentially educate individuals about issues that would ordinarily be suppressed to silence.
If you would like to participate in National Pro-Life Cupcake Day, here are three simple steps to follow:
- Bake or buy a bunch of cupcakes. Simple enough.
- Set up a table on a college campus or in a public place, and give away the cupcakes one by one to passersby.
- To spread the pro-life message, you can create a small flier explaining the purpose of National Pro-Life Cupcake Day to distribute with your free gift, or simply tell cupcake recipients, “We’re giving away cupcakes to honor the life of all unborn children, since some of them may never have a birthday cake.”
…It’s that simple!
