A Sweet Cause: Intelex Bake Sale Supports the Toronto Humane Society

On February 18 at 2:00pm, Intelex employees flooded the 6th floor kitchen area for an afternoon treat: the first Intelex Charity Bake Sale of 2014! Among the delicious desserts on display were cupcakes, homemade donuts, fudge, cookies, and cake pops. More than enough sugar to fuel the company through the rest of the afternoon!

Intelex loves to support local charities, and the beneficiary of this particular bake sale – the Toronto Humane Society – is an especially meaningful one for many Intelexians. We’re a company full of animal lovers! (You can check out pictures of Intelex’s “Bring Your Dog to Work Day” if you don’t believe us!)

We were lucky to have Michelle from Intelex’s Finance department bring in Tido to act as our official bake sale mascot. An adorable little mixed Yorkie, Tido was adopted from the Humane Society when he was just 8 months old after being mistreated by his previous owner. The Humane Society took Tido in and found him a happy home! On the day of the bake sale, Tido was happy to show off how far he’s come, giving out kisses, shaking paws and even dancing! Although he probably would have preferred for someone to accidentally drop a cupcake, there were plenty of dog-friendly treats on hand as well so the little guy didn’t feel left out!

When all the coins had been counted up, a total of $375 had been donated to the cause. Thank you to everyone who gave so generously – we hope you enjoyed your sugar rush!

The Toronto Humane Society’s mission statement is to promote the humane care and protection of all animals and to prevent cruelty and suffering. THS is an independent not-for-profit and exists solely due to the generosity of donors and members, receiving no government funding.
