2nd Annual Virtual Cake Stall
This is our Annual Appeal to raise funds to support gifted children and their networks.
Our 2nd Annual Virtual Cake Stall is about giving gifted children opportunities to maximise their potential.
We're a little bit like a school but have students right across the country who are connected by the simple fact - they're gifted.
Just like an ordinary cake stall brings together a community and helps support a worthy cause, our virtual cake stall brings us together no matter where we are and allows us to support gifted children locally and nationally. Of course, without the fuss of actually making a cake!
What we're asking is for you to give what you would normally spend on making or buying a cake to help gifted children make sure they're getting the right support for the learning needs.
Be it $3 for a slice of cake or $30 for a fancy cake, all it will take you is a few clicks to make this happen for gifted children right across NZ!
