Any colour as long as it is purple
Kids on Broadway marked Purple Cake Day in style.
Purple Cake Day, on March 1, is a celebration that arose out of a tragedy.
Last year’s celebration, the first, was founded by Kiwi widow Emily Sanson-rejouis in honour of her three- year- old daughter Zenzie who wanted to have two purple cakes for her fourth birthday.
Tragically, Zenzie never celebrated her fourth birthday as she died in the Haiti earthquake on January 12, 2010, along with her father Emmanuel and her sister Kofie-jade, 5. Miraculously, the youngest of the three sisters, Alyahna, 2, was pulled alive from the rubble 22 hours later.
Kids on Broadway celebrated the second event in style with youngsters and staff dressed in various shades of purple and, thanks to head teacher Janene Love’s artistic talents, sporting purple cupcakes painted on their cheeks.
Various purple-enhanced activities filled the day, including making purple cupcakes after lunch.
Colour purple: It was purple all the way at Kids on Broadway as little ones and staff marked Purple Cake Day on March 1.
