November is such an unlucky month for our bake sale. Last year it was a bazillion degrees and all of our cupcakes turned into cupcake soup. Today it was fah-reezing and it rained, a lot.
We set up first thing but by 7am it was raining lightly on and off. We had a few customers from 8am but by then it was pouring and we were all soaked.
We packed up by 9am and some of the baked goods went to Naked Espresso as a few of the staff baked for us so we returned their goods. I've been told customers were purchasing them so I should have an updated total later this afternoon. [Edit: We raised $361!]
The rest of the baked goods will be donated to the Vegan Society's cake & tea stall at the Cruelty Free Festival, so get down there tomorrow to snap up some of your favourites!
Thanks to Bel and M.L for helping with the organisation and to Ingrid who baked and stood in the rain with us. And a huge thanks to Leigh for selling baked goods for us at Naked Espresso! Also thanks to everyone who baked for us and who dropped by to make a purchase even though it was raining!
Our proceeds will be going to Charlie's Angels Horse Rescue. If you missed out today but would like to contribute, you can make a donation directly to them.
P.S Here are a few photos of some of the new baked goods we had today:
- 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.
