National Muffin Day
Who doesn’t love a large, delicious muffin to begin their morning? Muffins are a staple breakfast for many, and they’re great for afternoons or evenings as well. National Muffin Day allows people to share all they love about muffins with others.
Muffins are a favorite of many people. You can choose from a wide range of delicious flavors and they are fun to eat. They can be compared to a delicious cupcake with no frosting, but they are great for breakfast. They are usually thicker and contain more fruit than traditional muffin batter.
Everybody has their own way of eating muffins. Some people eat them quickly, while others prefer to take their time and spread the butter and jam on top of each muffin to create a sandwich. It doesn’t matter how you choose to eat your muffins, it is worth celebrating this day and every other day.
Although National Muffin Day is a huge celebration in modern times on this day, the idea behind it has humble origins. Jacob Kaufman, a tech company employee, was the one who started it all. Kaufman carried a bag of muffins along with him on his way to work and gave them to the homeless in the area where he lived. He made more muffins than he could handle and continued to do it every day. People began to affectionately refer to him as “The Muffin Men”.
Kaufman admits that his eyes were trained originally to avoid homeless and needy people. He began to enjoy giving away muffins and started looking for them everywhere he could. He changed his whole outlook when he realized that these people were not only “needy”, but also humans who deserved some attention. He was not only doing charity work but was eager to make connections with them over a cup of coffee every day.
Kaufman, who provided delicious food and was an inspiration to many, has been a source for giving and inspiration for those less fortunate than himself over the years. It was a highlight for many and a turning point in their lives.
Kaufman kept his work secret until Julia Levy, a blogger, discovered his story. In a blog post about ordinary philanthropists, she reported on what Kaufman was doing. The duo quickly realized that Kaufman’s muffin appeal could be used to help homeless people living in other areas.
In 2015, National Muffin Day was created. This day allows people to bake muffins while raising money for homeless shelters. Muffins were no longer a product that was consumed by consumers, but a tool to help those who are less fortunate or living on the streets.
There is a great need for donations and goodwill to support National Muffin Day. Warm, delicious muffins are needed by thousands of street people who live in poverty.
Many people are happy to know that National Muffin Day can be celebrated in many ways. These ideas will help you get started. Or, think of other creative ways to celebrate the day.
National Muffin Day organizers encourage people to make their own muffins and give them to those who are homeless in their local communities. Kaufman and Levy created an organization to donate money to homeless individuals in a particular city for every participant who bakes muffins. They will then hand them out to those in need in their local communities.
The healthier and more filling muffins, the better. You can bake them with hidden nutrition like blueberries, zucchini, whole wheat flour and summer squash. You should also keep in mind that some people may have nut allergies.
You can also celebrate National Muffin Day with a trip to the nearest bakery. Inform the bakery about the great deeds possible on National Muffin Day.
A fun way to have fun is to get together a group and do a baker’s crawl. Each muffin can be tried individually, and you will then choose the best. Don’t forget to ask everyone for a donation to the local shelter for homeless people!
It’s still relatively new and gaining momentum, so why not share it with everyone in your circle of influence? Make an announcement at work, post a notice at school, or share National Muffin Day activities via social media.
