Do a good thing. Buy a cupcake! (OK, maybe 10)

12 Nov

Do you, like me, salivate at the thought of ravishing a cupcake?

If you do, then why not do something good while you’re at it! (Some would argue that eating cupcakes is sinful, so, you know, you gotta balance it out)

The Pixel Project launched their annual ‘Paint It Purple’ campaign this year at Academy of Pastry Arts on 15 October 2011.

“Paint It Purple” is an annual global campaign by The Pixel Project to raise awareness about violence against women by getting the worldwide community to “paint” the internet purple while helping anti-violence against women nonprofits in communities worldwide to raise funds via special cupcake bake sales.

The Pixel Project and WAO are proud to partner with Bisou Bake Shop to create a limited edition Vanilla and Chocolate ‘Paint It Purple’ cupcakes in sweet shades of purple. These special cupcakes are available at Bisou Bake Shop outlets at KLCC and Bangsar Village I for just RM6.50 per cupcake until 16 November 2011 ONLY.
