Dear friend of Purple Cake Day
1. It's fun
We have been seriously impressed with how young people express their enthusiasm for reaching out to others around the world. And how they demonstrate ingenious, innovative, thoughtful and considered actions.
The work of such passionate and inspiring youngsters has led to the creation of the ‘Purple Cake Day Ambassadors’ role.
For instance - try showing Havana's Haircut video (below) to your class / school / children / friends and see what they say.
Havana's Haircut Video.
This kind of generosity is contagious – the Fa'vae siblings kayaked the Abel Tasman, Kahu ran 5km, Eli did a triathlon, Bella gave up her christmas presents, and Skylar turned her whole school purple! It's not just about cakes, it's about kids helping kids.
Meet Tim. Tim has a plan.
Tim lives in Switzerland and he loves to make and invent things. He often works with his Uncle Rolf, who is a blacksmith. Together they plan to set up a project called InTiRoHai (Inventions of Tim and Rolf for Haiti). Read more about their plan here>>
