Yep, it is that time of year again. We are fast approaching the infamous Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. It is an excellent opportunity to show off your baking skills, and gorge yourself on delectable vegan junk food.
If you are located in the Twin Cities, please come on by the Animal Rights Coalition on Saturday April 21st from 10 AM to 4 pm. There is still plenty of time to plan to bake for the sale, just contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
If you are new to this annual extravaganza, let me fill you in on the nitty gritty details. It was first started in 2009 with the proceeds going toward various animal causes. Since its beginning year, a $100,000 has been raised for charity. That is some serious moola in bake sale land.
Check out the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale's web site for a list of participating sales around world. It runs from April 21st through the 29th.
If there isn't one near you, consider organizing one. The central site provides helpful tips on how to get started, what to bake, advertising, etc. Heck, it has even been covered by CNN and VegNews the past couple years.
You need not be an expert baker to participate. If you simply can't imagine producing baked goods, you certainly can come out to buy some. Hope to see you there!
