Cupcakes to delight all creatures
A GRAPHIC designer with a passion for baking will try to sell 3000 cupcakes in a month to raise money for the RSPCA.
Tralisa Jarvis ( pictured) said she was aiming to raise $ 10,000 for RSPCA Cupcake Day by running market stalls and taking orders throughout August.
“I signed up last year and my goal was $ 500 but I raised $ 2000 so this year I thought I’d raise the bar and set more of a challenge for myself,” she said. “I’ve figured out I need to bake around 3000 but I’ll probably bake more.”
Ms Jarvis has been offered the use of the kitchen at Brothers Leagues Club where she works to help with her quest.
She said she loves baking cupcakes so the fundraiser was a good fit for her.
“I’m really passionate about animal welfare,” she said. “I can imagine just how much this money will help the RSPCA fight animal cruelty and improve the lives of all animals, so I’m more determined than ever to reach my target.”
The 25- year- old adopted her own cat, Irish, from the Townsville RSPCA shelter, adding to her passion for the cause.
“I’ve wanted to give back to the RSPCA more than ever after adopting Irish and have encouraged all my friends to adopt shelter animals and support the RSPCA in any way they can too,” she said.
Ms Jarvis will take orders through her Baked by Tralisa Facebook page and run stalls at Cotters Markets.
