What a gorgeous sunny winter day we had on Saturday! Big thanks to everyone who contributed by baking or buying — we raised $809.90 in total! After Christchurch suffered more quakes on the 13th (on top of the numerous aftershocks since February), we decided our coins would go to Animal Aid: Christchurch Earthquake Relief. That makes $675 for NSW Animal Rescue, and with the exchange rate, $174 for Christchurch (SAFE is redistributing collected funds to various groups in the Christchurch/Canterbury area).
We had one of our prettiest tables ever, with lots of cupcakes in Black Forest, tiramisu, peanut butter chocolate, lemon, carrot cake, banana split, linzer torte, lemon blueberry and chocolate, oatmeal cranberry cookies, panforte, little fruit tarts, three kinds of focaccia, potato-topped mushroom lentil pies, zucchini muffins, little owl-shaped gingerbreads, peanut butter blondies and even a bit more. You can get the full picture at our Flickr group. See you again a bit later in the year!
- 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.
