Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale


Eatocracy on CNN covered the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale, something that has been going on with the goal to raise money for Japan disaster relief. You should go read this article! It's really cool, and the pictures near the bottom look super yummy.

I would vote in the poll too and take a look at the results. Does anyone else find it interesting that no one voted for "I tried and it wasn't for me" ? That's a plus! At least people who have tried vegan baked goods have liked them, or so it seems.

Sadly, I missed the bake sale in my area; I could have gone, but I found out about it the day after the bake sale! So disappointing. Regardless...did anyone participate in the bake sale? Make anything for it? Buy something? Was it delicious? :)

This my last week of school! Friday is my last official day...then next week I have finals and I'm finished! Yay! Summer is almost here! Sometime soon I'll post my goals for the summer; I probably won't accomplish all of them, but I sure would love to....

Comments please! :)

  1. Thanks so much for this post. :) Actually, participating groups in the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (WVBS) can use the proceeds however they like. Many have chosen to donate to Japan, in light of the recent disasters, and have already raised about $10,000. Another $40,000 or so is being raised for a wide variety of other worthy causes, from farm animal sanctuaries to community gardens to special-needs child development centers.

    The full 2011 WVBS schedule, which in most cases lists where the proceeds of each bake sale are going (groups are not required to reveal what they're doing with their proceeds) is at http://www.veganbakesale.org/veganbakesale/vbs-where.html

    BTW, although the "official" week of the WVBS is now, we're not strict on the dates, so there's still time to get in on the meaningful fun!
