Yesterday was the official day for celebrations but the charity organisation is urging people to continue to hold them right through until the end of June.
In short, these tea parties are a fun way for people to raise money for important cancer research - while at the same time catching up with their colleagues, friends, family and wider community.
Many morning tea organisers take over the workplace staffroom or the local town hall, but this year the Cancer Council is encouraging people to think outside the square and use technology to have a cuppa with others over the computer.
All you have to do is join the Virtual Morning Tea on Facebook. When you sit down to raise your cup of tea to those with cancer, share this with your fellow virtual tea party participants and it will pop up on an interactive map.
This means that busy people can stop and enjoy a moment for a good cause from their laptop, tablet or even their smartphone.
"Cancer Council understands that people connect with their community in different ways," national marketing manager Tori Cella said.
"A virtual morning tea is an opportunity to share an online cuppa and show your support for Cancer Council's vital cancer research, prevention and support programs."
This is a great example of how technology is helping Australian charities engage and connect with their loyal supporters and followers. Not everyone has a free moment in their schedule for a big morning tea, but most are happy to get involved with internet initiatives by joining a Facebook group or donating online.
There are currently over 16,000 participants all taking part in the virtual experience. By participating you could even win some prizes - a Sunbeam appliance pack including a Mixmaster, Foodsaver and Sunbeam Double Rolls valued at more than $350 is up for grabs.
To join, there is just one small catch - the Cancer Council would like you to share a few words about why cancer is important to you and let them know the area you will be having your own morning tea. So far over 700 stories have been shared.
Last year a cumulative total of $11.2 million was raised and for 2012 it is hoped that number will increase to $11.5 million.
