Cupcakes for Cancer Community Involvement!!

Name of Organization or Cause *
Cupcakes for Cancer

Isabelle Chee* -  National American Miss California Pre-Teen.

Total Hours Served* - 15 hours

My community service project is "Cupcakes for Cancer". I baked cupcakes to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. This organization raises awareness and researches to find a cure for breast cancer. The reason I chose to donate to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation is because my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer seven years ago. Suddenly, my mom went from a full-time mom to a full-time cancer patient. My mother underwent two surgeries, 8 rounds of chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. It was devastating. I was only 5 years old and my brother was 9 years old. This is an organization that means a lot to me because I feel so lucky that my mom is a seven year breast cancer survivor. I made a total of 150 cupcakes and sold them for $1.00 a piece to school friends and neighbors. This project turned into a family event. My dad and brother happily offer to be my quality control specialists (cupcake tasters) and mom helped me with purchasing all the baking goods supplies. This was a great project because I love baking and I could make some fun memories with my family, as well as raise money for cause that meant a lot to me. After 15 hours of community service, I am proud to say I donated $150.00 to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.

  1. Sell that $20,000 stove and ventilation system, and feed disabled children without parents.
