I got to Newtown this morning but couldn't set up for the bake sale as a climate change event has the area booked.
Sorry to anyone who baked for us, you'll have to share the goodies with your friends and family as will we (I have 8 dozen cupcakes... cupcake party at my place anyone?!)
Hopefully we'll be on for November!

Yesterday we received a thank you card from Christine at Donkey Welfare with Heart. She thanked us for the generous result of $1000 and said no one else has ever raised that much for them.
She also included a photo of a trio of donkeys they have recently taken in. They were on the way to the knackery but now they are happy and healthy, living at Donkey Welfare :) Their names are Abdul, Guinevere and Duffy.
Donkey Welfare is also having an event, Sunday November 8. You can meet the donkeys, the volunteers and their will be food and market stalls. You can read more about it in the Cruelty Free Shop newsletter and you need to RSVP if you intend to go along.
THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to the $1000 we raised last month, it was very much appreciated by Christine and the volunteers at Donkey Welfare.
And we've got 1 week to go until the October bake sale! I hope we'll see you all there. I promise there will be peanut butter cupcakes, agave-sweetened, sugar-free cupcakes and vegan rocky road. For any other requests, email us at sydneyveganbakesale at gmail dot com

This month our bake sale will be on Saturday October 24, 8am-2pm. Because it takes place only a few weeks before the Melbourne Cup we wanted to support a charity that takes in and cares for ex-race horses.
I couldn't find a sanctuary that is solely dedicated to ex-race horses but Brightside Farm Sanctuary in Tasmania has taken in 52 horses and ponies over the last 18 months, most were thoroughbreds and destined for the knackery.
So for October our proceeds will be donated to Brightside Farm Sanctuary to help them continue the fantastic work they do.
In the meantime you can read more about the cruelty involved in the horse racing industry here. And if you want to make a donation to BFS you can do that here.
Don't forget to let us know if there are any particular items you'd like to see for sale.
See you later this month!

- We're a group of Sydney vegans who hold bake sales to raise money for animal-related charities. We started by participating in the first Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale and then we realised what a great opportunity it is and have decided to continue our bake sales on a regular basis. Our stall is located at the Newtown Square Markets on King St Newtown, across the road from the train station, outside the Community Centre.
