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

Possibly downtown L.A., faunablues. I am checking on a few things to see if a vegan bake style downtown is possible, seeing if there's enough interest.

In Los Angeles, the Vegan Bake Sale will take place at the Los Angeles City Hall Farmers Market, 200 N. Spring Street(City Hall lawn), next Thursday, June 25, 2009 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

The folks at the Los Angeles City Hall Farmers Market have been VERY kind in helping me set this up. Tables, umbrellas and prime spot with foot traffic secured for the event. Gary, who is organizing this global event, has been wonderful too and very responsive even with his busy schedule.

Staff of Councilmember Reyes, who is sponsoring the event, and several other Los Angeles City Councilmember staffers have offered to bake, make signs and post these fliers:

Please free to share this and spread the word via e-mail, twitter, Facebook, etc. I have sent several here to Vegweb since it is the first time vegan baking for many. Exciting stuff!

One more thing ... I'm still putting the word out for more bakers, so if you, or if you know anyone who can drop of vegan bakery that morning, or the day before at the Councilman's office (City Hall, Room 410), please let me know. Thank  you and happy baking! :)

Thank you, Laura. Councilmember Reyes' vegan bake sale went very well. We sold out!

We got some very kind donations from a diverse community of bakers who included friends, family, Los Angeles City Hall staff, Farmers Market vendors, and even gourmet chefs!
