Tip it Forward is a campaign I started September of 2019 where the "tip" feature on invoices was activated. Prior to this, tipping was not an option when paying invoices. The idea behind this campaign is to help our community by tipping it forward. 100% of tips received each month will go to the designated charity of that month. Tipping is 100% optional and not expected, but greatly appreciated. No amount is too small or too large. On this page, I will be showcasing the beneficiary of the current month while adding more information on how they continue to help our community. If you have a charity you would like to recommend please send the information to me at denise@cupcakesthegalleria.com


The Step Sisters fight breast cancer differently – by raising funds to provide practical support services for area patients as they battle the disease.


We have established relationships with local businesses to provide our services. By working with these service providers and our participating hospitals, we are able to help ease the burden of this disease for some of those in need. We partner with hospitals in the Northern Virginia area to provide the following services at no charge to the patient:

Treatment Transportation – one of the most common barriers to successful course of treatment is the patient’s access to consistent transportation.

Professional House Cleaning – Most patients are the caretakers of their homes. Relieving the burden of having to clean the house is one way we can help a patient be able to focus on getting well and spending quality time with family.

Meals – Providing food stability in a time of crisis alleviates tremendous stress from patients.

Childcare – Care for children means patients will have needed help in order to receive treatment and take time to heal, while knowing the kids are in the best of hands.

Lawn Care & Snow Removal – Overwhelming tasks such as lawn care or daunting impediments such as snow removal should not get in the way of treatments.

Pet Services – We can help you make sure that even your furry family members aren’t neglected during your treatment.

Crisis Fund – Designed to meet critical needs in the areas of housing, utilities and food stability, the Crisis Fund provides support to patients experiencing a financial emergency during treatment.
