When we first act with gratitude and giving, good things happen. Sarah Buxbaum, owner of Celebrate with Sarah event planning service, based in Thousand Oaks, California, may be unable to plan events during the COVID-19 shutdown, but she hasn’t stopped planning and creating something new.

Buxbaum has launched the “My Sweet Gratitude Movement” — a service where anyone can purchase cupcakes in any amount they choose as a way to “pay it forward” with dessert drop off to local hospitals and first responders.

“I have always been driven by an entrepreneurial spirit. That, along with a love for baking and styling parties, helped successfully launch my dessert catering company, Celebrate with Sarah, four years ago. The COVID-19 pandemic has sent my event-based business to a screeching halt, but that didn’t stop me from continuing forward in a different way. I'm now using my kitchen and messages on social media to lift the spirits of essential workers, one cupcake at a time,” Buxbaum said.

Buxbaum has kept busy baking and delivering her sweet treats to local hospitals and first responders and she is looking to expand her efforts with the help and donations from others to give back as much as possible to thank the community for their service during the pandemic.
