This years event “ACTS of GREEN” will focus on issues facing our planet which are vast and often overwhelming including Global Warming and endangered species.

"As a nurse and the founder of UNSA, I have this intense need to help others. So, to provide a legitimate way for others in the cake and sugar community to use their skills and strength as a hole to make a change in this world, means everything to me. Volunteering and helping others are part of being a citizen of this planet that we all have a responsibility to do".
The United Nations of Sugar has been in existence for 2 years and is awaiting Nonprofit status. It began as a small group of friends wanting to use their passion for cakes to band together and somehow make a difference in the lives of others. It has since grown into a community of over 400 members with a goal to host annual digital art galleries to raise awareness and funds for a given charity. Last year UNSA hosted “BE TEAM RED” which raised over $2200.00 for The Global Fund in donations and educated many to the transmission of HIV from mother to child and it’s prevention.
