A Sweet Way to Support Parkinson's Awareness Month

The Michael J. Fox Foundation has given more than $304 million to Parkinson's research so far. This is an easy (and cheap!) way to help them give more.

The next time you get the itch for a sweet treat, cave in for a good cause. In honor of Parkinson's Awareness Month (FYI: One American is diagnosed every nine minutes), Magnolia Bakery has teamed up with the Michael J. Fox Foundation on a limited-edition cupcake, available online and sold in stores throughout April. For $1.75, you can support the MJFF and Parkinson's disease research for new treatments and ultimately–a cure.

To purchase a cupcake, visit or stop by a Magnolia Bakery near you. To learn more about the MJFF, visit
