Here’s a quick question.
What is warm, soft, melts easily and when touched, brings a smile to people’s faces?
No we’re not talking about a heart!
Okay, here’s another hint: When shared, it spreads joy and is a part of almost all our celebrations!
Yes. We’re talking about the emotion of a freshly baked cake!
Just 4 alphabets C.A.K.E, but the power it holds is immense! Confused? We’ll solve the mystery.
Not just cake walk
Winter is here, the festive season is on and fun is in the air. It is that time of the year when we spend some quality time with friends and family, often over food and drinks.
Now not to be all preachy here but we have all, at some point or the other during our celebrations wished we could share the joy with someone else too; someone lesser fortunate, someone maybe not as privileged as us.
And though we don’t let that feeling interfere with our momentary happiness, deep down, when all the high and joy washes away, the wish to put a smile not a not so happy face still lingers!
Well, if you’ve had anything close to that feeling, then you know exactly what we’re talking about.
And if such is the case, then you my friend are at the perfect place!
Foodies in the true sense
Calcutta Foodies Club, an online group of connoisseurs of food wherein different members share their everyday food related experiences, have come up with the LetShare initiative to carry out a cake donation drive among the underprivileged.
With close to 18,000 members, Calcutta Foodies Club in association with Mio Amore have hatched this plan to gather together funds from among the group members and arrange for cakes to be distributed on the 1st of January among the ones who are not fortunate enough to celebrate the festive season.
Talking about the event Indrajit Lahiri, a key member of the Calcutta Foodies Club and the driving force behind the event said “A simple dinner outing with the family costs nothing less than 3 – 4 thousand today. We’re looking at collecting a base donation sum of Rs 100 from the members and anyone interested to make this dream come true”
Not just Plans
The idea is to collect as much funds possible from the members and anyone in general
Mio Amore will be providing the cakes at a discounted rate to join hands in the noble cause
A route is already chalked out for the donation drive from previous such noble activities of the members of the club
On the evening of the first of January 2017 a fleet of trucks will head out in the different routes with members in each of them to scout and gift cakes to children and families on the street at the various pre-decided locations.
