First annual Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale - June 20-28, 2009

Hi,

I wanted to announce the first annual Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale, sponsored by Compassion for Animals (CfA), a new DC-based grassroots animal advocacy group, of which I'm a part.

The idea is simple (we hope): Anyone or any group - not just animal-related or vegan groups - can join by having a vegan bake sale during the period June 20-28. Participants can do whatever they want with the proceeds.

CfA will leverage the event and its semi-good media connections to get positive mainstream and non-mainstream press on vegan food and veganism in general.

So if you participate, you can...save two birds with one nest, by raising funds for your cause as well as being part of this fun awareness-raising global happening.

Much more info is here: www.veganbakesale.org. For questions, feel free to contact eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%69%6e%66%6f%40%76%65%67%61%6e%62%61%6b%65%73%61%6c%65%2e%6f%72%67%22%3e%69%6e%66%6f%40%76%65%67%61%6e%62%61%6b%65%73%61%6c%65%2e%6f%72%67%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')). Or post here.

We do ask that people who want to participate fill out our "easy as pie" signup form, so we and the world can know where the vegan bake sales are and who's holding them.

Thanks!
Gary

Saskia, that's awesome! Congratulations!

I'm participating in one in SF this weekend...we even have a hacked together little website http://worldwideveganbakesalesf.tumblr.com/ Everyone in the SF Bay Area should stop by!!

Thank you, AC and Laura. :)

Laura that is one fine looking website you created. Those doughnuts look divine. And those cupcakes, edible little works of art.

LA Bake Sale follow-up ... I have had many, mostly non-vegans in and outside of City Hall asking me when our next vegan bake sale is. Some suggested we a vegan bake sale every week, or monthly at the Los Angeles City Hall Farmers Market. I got several comments to from non-vegan bakers thanking me too for inspiring them to try vegan baking. Responses like these make my day. :)

Yay LA! Yay Saskia!

We raised $3,000 over the two days of our sale! WOOHOO! I'm sunburned and exhausted but so happy!! California represent! I hope we made more than any other state! As you guys might be learning, I'm slightly competitive!

My friend Sharon has a couple photos on her flickr but I'll try to get more: http://www.flickr.com/photos/11112304@N00/ WOOHOO! Yay WorldWide Vegan Bakesale!!

$3000! That's fantastic. One afternoon for our LA bake sale was fun but wiped me out, so I can't imagine what a two-day event would have been like for you and the SF crowd.

I hope California can make the claim to the most money raised. I wonder if Gary has the final numbers yet. A little competition is fun. :)
