10-year-old raised $2,050 from cupcakes

Milla Scarlett raised over $2,000 for the RSPCA

Kincumber Public School student, 10-year-old, Milla Scarlett, raised $2,050 for the RSPCA by baking and selling cupcakes at her school for the RSPCA’s annual Cupcake Day.

As part of their ‘Positive Behaviour for Learning program’, Kincumber Public School students can earn vouchers for positive behaviour that can be traded in for rewards, one of which is the opportunity to organise a whole school fundraiser.

“It’s always inspiring when a student chooses to use their personal rewards to benefi t others in the community”, Principal, Ms Trish Peters, said. “I did this because I’m really passionate about animals and I love to bake,” Milla said.

“Since the RSPCA relies on community support for funding, I thought I should do my bit.” Milla enlisted the help of her family to sell cupcakes at work, school and sporting events and even created her own website for donations. “I’m super grateful to my family and my school for all of their support.

“Every cupcake you bake has the power to change animal’s lives and give mistreated animals a second chance at a better life,” Milla said. RSPCA Cupcake Day 2015 has raised $1,418,456 to date.
