As you must know by now, Haiti was struck with a devastating earthquake that has killed tens of thousands of people and caused who only knows how much destruction. It was already a sucky time for Haitians and this is just heartbreaking.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t get over there to volunteer and I don’t like the feeling of being utterly useless and hopeless. This afternoon I put out a call for bake sale volunteers on twitter and facebook and I got a really great response. I’m hoping that we can not only raise money, raise awareness but also remind ourselves of what really matters. Cupcakes! Wait, no…community!
I’m writing this note to have a central place to exchange info and help organize in our areas. Let’s show our support for the people of Haiti and harm no animals in the process.
If you are planning a bake sale, please get in touch here or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will update this list as more info becomes available. If you have other ideas for helping out then let us know!
