South Africa (12 October 2020) – The Global Fundraising Awards by the Resource Alliance have selected eight organisations, one of which will win the Change Accelerator Award. Two South African organisations have made the list and we are incredibly proud!
Cupcakes of Hope, founder Sandy Cipriano, has been nominated for the award.

Every month Cupcakes of Hope helps 80 -100 little cancer patients by paying for their medical and day-to-day expenses.”

The Change Accelerator Award goes to an individual who is advanced in their thinking, daring in their approach – and tired of the status quo. Their ideas are bigger, their goals loftier and their timeline faster. Their giant strides overshadow the baby steps of hesitation and timidity. They inspire us to the fearless pursuit of accelerating change in a time when we must displace fearfulness with fearlessness and strive for big impact. The Change Accelerator dares to live life in the fast lane of change.
