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.

Giving Tuesday- GIVING Tuesday – #GivingTuesday
The Tuesday after Thanksgiving, charities nationwide are encouraging supporters to participate in Giving Tuesday, which is a daylong national effort to help charities raise money online during the holiday shopping season. This year on December 2, 2014, LEAP is joining Giving Tuesday to help raise money 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 generously give to support LEAP’s mission. To donate on Giving Tuesday, visit our Donate page on the website.
