Lyric's Cupcakes philanthropy is to help eradicate youth need, promote the value of education, and make sure I am the person I needed growing up in our communities. Giving back to our communities and various charities is what drives the work of E'Lyric and Lyric's Cupcakes. Lyric's Cupcakes is not only a bakery but a movement. #thecupcakeproject is apart of our philanthropy. I grew up in several urban communities all over the City of Cleveland. I want to open up a community center. Not just a normal one but one that is a business/idea incubator for the young adults to develop life plans as well as business plans. It will also have homework help, tutors, sports, tech classes, the arts and more.
I am working on funding and developing a free lunch program for a few neighborhoods I grew up in. It will be a weekend free-lunch program for ages 0-25 for high poverty communities. The reason why I want to start this is because a lot of the youth go to school and that is all that there able to eat. 53.5% is the Child poverty rate in Cleveland. I am so passionate about making sure these kids have something to eat on the weekends throughout the summer.
I am also teaming up with a women’s shelter to give a cake/cupcake to a family in need to help them celebrate their child’s birthday. My goal is to be able to do this once a month.
All this is possible with the help of YOU. The COMMUNITY. I am taking donations. You can write a check, Donate to #thecupcakeproject paypal, cash gifts, services, space. I am grateful for any and everything to make my dreams of a healthy community come true.
