#Cakes4Syria: 10 years of selling cakes and saving lives

The Cake Campaign, an award-winning volunteer-led initiative, which has regularly trended on social media under the hashtag #Cakes4Syria, celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year!

The Cake Campaign aims to deliver delicious chocolate fudge cakes to people’s doors during Ramadan, a month when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and give generously to charity as they remember those less fortunate than themselves. You can purchase the chocolate fudge cake for £10, with all proceeds are directed to Islamic Relief’s ongoing Syria Appeal.

The Cake Campaign: Over 180,000 cakes delivered

Since 2013, The Cake Campaign has delivered 180,000 cakes – thats over 2.5 million slices of chocolate cake! The campaign is a fantastic charitable cause for people all across the UK to support, and a delicious dessert to add to your iftar with family and friends.

As one volunteer explains:

“The idea is that you save a life with a piece of cake. It’s a remarkable ingenious and tasty way to save lives.

“Each cake cuts into around 14 slices, which is way too much for one person breaking their fast. The idea is that you buy the cake to share, and because the money is going to Syria that adds a wider charitable element to the sharing.”

Having been covered by 127 local and national media outlets including the Daily MailITV and BT News ,The Cake Campaign has reached incredible successes and just keeps on growing! This year, volunteers are ready to take the campaign even further.

Zia Salik, Head of Fundraising, is more excited than ever about this flourishing campaign:

“This is an idea that came from the grassroots, from our volunteers, and the response over the years has been just fantastic. The teams of volunteers across the UK have done an amazing job helping to raise thousands for those affected by the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.”

Since the conflict began, Islamic Relief has delivered more than £350 million worth of aid inside Syria and in neighbouring countries, assisting millions of Syrians across the region, SubhanAllah!
