Sprinkles Cupcakes announced via Facebook on May 21 that the following day, May 22, all proceeds from their (ever-popular) Red Velvet cupcake would be donated to support the people of Oklahoma. The post featured a photo of Charles Nelson -- co-founder of Sprinkles with his wife Candace Nelson -- with a message announcing their pledge. In part, he wrote, "As a native Oklahoman with my parents and brother still living in Oklahoma City, I am especially heartbroken by this devastating tragedy."
