LEAP events are integral elements of our sustainability model. Various events throughout the year, allow LEAP to stay connected with our local community, partners, and LEAP supporters. These events also raise awareness about LEAP and promote the mission and story of LEAP.
Cupcake Camp Dallas - http://cupcakecampdallas.com
Cupcake Camp Dallas is the local chapter of a global movement where cupcake lovers of all ages gather to eat cupcakes for a cause. The event, organized and run by volunteers, who chose to make LEAP the Dallas event’s benefactor usually takes place in late spring. The proceeds gathered from numerous professional and amateur bakers offering their goods will be used to send our surgical teams around the world to help children.Click over to http://cupcakecampdallas.com to learn more about the great event!

GIVING Tuesday – #GivingTuesday
The Tuesday after Thanksgiving (similar to Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the for profit world), charities nationwide are encouraging supporters to participate in Giving Tuesday-a daylong national effort to help charities raise money online during the holiday shopping season. This year, LEAP is joining Giving Tuesday in order to raise money right before the Christmas season begins. Our hope is to add to the number of nonprofits that are helped by this national day of giving and to inspire our supporters to give in support of LEAP’s cause.
