The full horror of the Oklahoma tornado tragedy is still unfolding, and businesses are starting to jump in to help out. If you want to do your part while grabbing a tasty treat on the way to work, Sprinkles Cupcakes has the perfect option.

Tomorrow, Sprinkles will be donating 100% of the proceeds from their Red Cross Red Velvet cupcakes to the Red Cross of Oklahoma to assist with relief efforts. A few bucks isn't huge, but it's something — and maybe when you finish the cupcake you'll be inspired to make a larger gift.

Don't like red velvet cupcakes? You could just go ahead and donate to Red Cross.

Sprinkles is located at 50 East Walton.
