BEKINS SUPPORTS KITCHENAID’S 10,000 CUPCAKES, ONE GREAT CAUSE

Bekins participates in KitchenAid 10,000 cupcakes campaign

Bekins recently baked cupcakes for a great cause and we encourage you to do the same! As a part of their “10,000 Cupcakes, One Great Cause” campaign in October, KitchenAid will donate $1 to Susan G. Komen  for every original photo of cupcakes posted to Twitter and Instagram. The October posts have to include the hashtags #10000cupcakes and #donate.

Since 1982, Susan G. Komen has funded more than $920 million in breast cancer research, more than $2.0 billion in medical care, community and provider education. They also provide psychosocial support while serving millions in over 60 countries worldwide.

One our employees in Grand Rapids, Erika, has shown off her talent for baking cupcakes at some of our events through the years.

This month she baked two dozen pink cupcakes for customers at our store. She also wrapped them with the instructions for how others can help the cause. We have a quick video of her work below:

We encourage you to share photos of cupcakes with the hashtags #10000cupcakes and #donate. Mention us @_bekins so that we can like and share it too!

The “innovative technology” in the home includes the appliances. The homeowners chose the custom panel option for their refrigerator which also features new Open Door Assist technology. The homeowners can push or pull their door open. Even if they accidentally bump it open, or forget about it, the door will automatically close within a few seconds. This video shows the new technology in action.
