Mia Spurigan Baking for Charity

We All Rotate

We All Rotate is a foundation that is set on helping people in Nepal. In May/April in 2015 Steve Beatty (Founder) was in Nepal when dangerous earthquakes started to occur. So, he decided to start the We All Rotate Foundation. At Sacred Heart, Year 7s raised money for Living Mercy to help sponsor 5 girls in Nepal so they can be lucky enough to attend school. Each class sponsored 1 girl. Year 7s managed to raise around $2700 dollars! We raised this money by doing an act of kindness. Each student was expected to bring at least $10 to class. Some people would sell lemonade, or mow someone’s lawn for money. I, for example, managed to raise $220 by baking and decorating cakes and then selling them over the school holidays for $20 per cake, after my mum sent out a post on Facebook for me:

Hi beautiful community, I’m posting this on behalf of my Yr 7 daughter. We would love to get community support for her cause. This is part of her Living Mercy activity through school where she is raising money for girls in Nepal.

Hello everyone! Throughout the school holidays, I will be taking orders for Vanilla Sponge Cakes with Buttercream frosting, that I’ll bake and decorate. These cakes will be sold for $20. All money will go towards sponsoring a girl in Nepal to attend school. It would be greatly appreciated if you could help me raise money for this cause. Please message my mum privately to place your order. All ingredients will be listed. The cakes will contain dairy, gluten and eggs. GF options are possible, please just let me know. Thank you, Mia

I stopped by at customer's houses and would give them the cake that they ordered. The process of baking the cakes was challenging and did take me some time. During the school holidays in lockdown, I baked 11 cakes for Living Mercy. The experience was difficult, yet a good chance to take part in Living Mercy, and raising money for a girl in Nepal so she can attend school, as well as raising awareness for this cause.
