CHERMAINE POO’S CUPCAKES FOR CHARITY
How it all started?
Chermaine has acted and hosted in numerous movies and tvprogrammes. One of her latest TV program is SK-II Miracle Makers aired on NTV7, which scored very high viewership in its category.
The programme comprises series of interviews of and actual ground work with five remarkable women who have been running charitable homes for the less fortunate, over the years.
After a season of this meaningful programme, she rose to the challenge to createher own charity to raise funds on a regular basis to help the less fortunate.
“Chermaine Poo’s Cupcakes for Charity” (also fondly known as the “3Cs”) was thus founded.
In December 2011, Chermaine created her own charity drive. It was named “Chermaine Poo’s Cupcakes for Charity”. She challenged herself with the task of baking 1,000 cupcakes single-handedly in two days.Concurrently, she organised a venue, Sunway Pyramid, to sell boxes of the home-baked cupcakes. Performances, decorations and announcements to shoppers (prior to event) were also arranged. She enlisted her Celebrity friends and family to help her pack the cupcakes into the boxes of six and later, sell them at the arranged venue.
Lotus Cars were also arranged to transport the cupcakes from the packing venue to Sunway Pyramid where the charity sale event was held.
Her friends from the media were invited to participate. They showed their support by buying the boxes of cupcakes and even publicisingit before and after the event. VIP supporters (eg. Tan Sri, Puan Sri, Datuk, Datin, etc), friends and clients also attended and showed their support by inviting their friends and staff and of course, by purchasing dozens of boxes of cupcakes.
