We're having an online bake sale auction to benefit 4 of our favorite charities, on March 18-19. The four charities tentatively are: Animal Coalition of Tampa (low cost spay/neuter), Dogs for the Deaf, Darlynn's Darlins (pig sanctuary), and Friends of Arlington Animal Services.
Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale's (WVBS) official dates are April 21-29, but we're having ours early! And have we mentioned how awesome Gary, the creator of WVBS, is? Gary wrote an article in issue 3 of the Peace to All Creatures 'zine, with great suggestions on how to get restaurants to add vegan options. You should check it out!
A quick run-down on how our online bake sale auction will work: we will post photos and descriptions right here on the blog on the morning of the 18th, then you - our dear readers - will email us with your bids, which we will update on the site every couple hours, and finish up on the evening of the 19th. If you win the bidding for the item (6 raspberry blondies, for example), you make your donation, and the baker will ship the goodies to you. It might sound a little crazy, but we hope to raise a lot of money for some very deserving non-profits, and send you some delicious vegan goodies in return!
Don't forget to save the dates for the Peace to All Creatures online bake sale - March 18-19!
