Vegan Bake Sales For Haiti

by IsaChandra

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: postpunkkitchen@gmail.com. I will update this list as more info becomes available. If you have other ideas for helping out then let us know!

  • January 13, 2010 at 11:05 pm: Patricia

    I’d love to try and help organize a bake sale in the Greater Philadelphia region if possible…

  • January 14, 2010 at 1:33 am: kittee

    I’m gonna make King Cake–apple praline cheezecake. I’m also challenging my friends in NOLA to do the same, hopefully we can help a bit. This is another great idea, Isa.


  • January 14, 2010 at 1:48 am: IsaChandra

    For people who want to organize but aren’t sure how…start a thread on the PPK in the square and see what develops! If you’re shy I can start one for you, just ask!

  • January 14, 2010 at 1:52 am: amy

    anyone who’s got ideas for locations in NYC, let’s get on this! i’ve reached out to the brooklyn flea but haven’t heard back from them.

    it would be great if we could nail down a location this week for a bake sale next weekend.

    if you’ve got ideas, share! (via email or in the thread in the square…soon.)

  • January 14, 2010 at 1:58 am: Jamie Morgan

    Hey Hey Isa!
    The Lexington Food Not Bombs crew is holding a Vegan Bake Sale this saturday the 16th, at Hopkins green Park in downtown Lexington Virginia!
    Love – Jamie

  • January 14, 2010 at 2:35 am: IsaChandra

    Hi Jamie! Is that a bakesale for Haiti? I mean, I will promote it no matter what, but wondering if I should add it to this list.

  • January 14, 2010 at 6:17 am: kristy**p

    what about orange county, ca.. anyone out there want to help me organize a group?? i am in the sobeca area and have contacts with the lab. maybe there?? i’m availablle as soon as tomorrow. anyone??
    feel free to contact me via my blog site.

  • January 14, 2010 at 12:14 pm: Deya

    sorry for the ignorance … but how does this work … i get a couple of fellow vegans to donate time and cupcakes and then proceeds get to haiti how? … red cross donation? …

  • January 14, 2010 at 12:15 pm: Deya

    i live in st. louis, mo area by the way …

  • January 14, 2010 at 1:23 pm: Sarah F

    I, too, would love to get involved but am fairly clueless as to how to organize. Amy, Brooklyn Flea is a great idea. Another good Brooklyn spot might be in McCarren Park, since it gets a lot of food traffic (even during the winter), and they have the farmers’ market on Saturdays.

    In terms of getting the money to Haiti, Partners in Health (http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%253A%252F%252Fact.pih.org%252Fearthquake&h=c78e749e659eedfa857a040e8ea555fb&ref=nf) is a reputable organization.

    Sorry, this is the link for Partners in Health: https://donate.pih.org/page/contribute/haiti_earthquake

  • January 14, 2010 at 2:57 pm: Johnna

    Working on a Cupcake Sale in the Northland of Kansas City. Details soon…

  • January 14, 2010 at 3:19 pm: IsaChandra

    Deya, the fund can go to the org of your choosing. And yes, a bake sale generally works as you’ve described! Find a place to have it, get your friends and community involved, spread the word, and voila! Whether you raise 25 dollars or 2500 dollars it will be worth it! Maybe I’ll write a post about how to do it later on.

  • January 14, 2010 at 3:35 pm: Rachel

    any vegan bakers in/near Boulder? It’d do so well here! I’d love to organize- and I’ve got the time, but not soooo much the baking skills… shout out if interested! (please:)

  • January 14, 2010 at 3:54 pm: toni okamoto

    My friend Amy and I are holding a bake sale in Sacramento, CA.

  • January 14, 2010 at 4:56 pm: IsaChandra

    Thanks Toni! Any way to contact you if people want to participate?

  • January 14, 2010 at 4:57 pm: toni okamoto

    I’ll e-mail you my phone number. Thanks a bunch!

  • January 14, 2010 at 5:00 pm: IsaChandra

    Well toni, I don’t want to publish your number! If someone wants to bake they might want to communicate directly with you :)

  • January 14, 2010 at 5:09 pm: kristy**p

    Ok, We’ve organized a sale in Orange County, Ca. It’s going to be held at 2814 Newport Blvd, Newport Beach, Ca 92663. This Saturday jan 16, from noon till whenever we sell out! I hope to see some of y’all there!! Visit me at krislegeek@blogspot.com with any questions or advice!

  • January 14, 2010 at 5:31 pm: toni okamoto

    Good point. I suppose the second best method of contacting me would be e-mail.


    thank you again

  • January 14, 2010 at 5:55 pm: Stephanie

    My workplace just sent out an email stating that all employee donations will be matched 100%, so I’m looking to set up a bake sale in good ol’ Milwaukee, Wisconsin so I can donate through my work and get every dime we make doubled!

    If any MKE-area vegan bakers want to lend a hand, I’ll be contacting the Riverwest Co-op in the next day or so to see if we can hold it there.

    Please email me at excessively@gmail.com if you’d like to help!

  • January 14, 2010 at 6:38 pm: Kathryn Polster

    I’m in Sacramento I would love to help!

  • January 14, 2010 at 7:01 pm: Kathryn Polster

    oh yeah – sacramentovegan@gmail.com

  • January 14, 2010 at 7:20 pm: SF BAKE SALE FOR HAITI

    Not going to be vegan, but I’m doing one in SF in the Financial District!

  • January 14, 2010 at 7:39 pm: IsaChandra

    Kathryn…looks like the contact for Sacramento is toni.okamoto@att.net Get in touch and kick some ass!

  • January 14, 2010 at 7:41 pm: IsaChandra

    SF Bake Sale – just make it vegan :) I don’t feel comfortable promoting hurting animals for anything. Vegan baking is so fun and easy. Contact me if you need help with absolutely anything.

  • January 14, 2010 at 8:17 pm: Jennifer Wise

    Anybody in the Philadelphia are doing anything? If not, Philly bakers email me @ Jkw1975@gmail.com to see if we can get something going.

  • January 15, 2010 at 12:12 am: Jamie Morgan

    Hey Isa!
    Yes, the bake sale is in support of our Haitian fam !
    Good luck to everyone holding bakesales in the near future !
    love Jamie

  • January 15, 2010 at 12:58 am: Gary

    I just started a thread in The Square section of the forums for a Northern Virginia / metro DC vegan bake sale for Haiti, then I saw DCVegan may be getting one together. I’ll contact DCVegan. Maybe we can join forces or maybe there will be one in DC on in the NOVA suburbs. First job: get venue(s). Checking out farmers markets and places where we’ve done vegan bake sales in the past starting tommorrow. Ideas (and volunteers) appreciated! I guess you can go to the forum thread or email me at gary@compassion4animals.org. But like I said I’m also going to contact DCvegan so we have a coordinated (and awesome) effort.

  • January 15, 2010 at 1:20 am: Honor

    Toni, your friend told me about your sale via the Meetup group. And here you are! I was working on organizing a sale in Sacramento, as well, but I’m happy to pitch in and throw my baked goods your way.


  • January 15, 2010 at 8:20 am: erica

    NYC Bake Sale Organizers,

    We can host the bake sale at MooShoes (78 Orchard St., LES)
    Just let me know the date.


  • January 15, 2010 at 8:46 am: Megan

    The Minneapolis VBS will be at Animal Rights Coalition on January 30 from 12pm-5pm. 317 W 48th Street.

  • January 15, 2010 at 12:10 pm: Jose

    I created a short list to this listing in bitly
    Feel free to use it when twittering, etc.


    yay Toni, yay Amy, yay all of you!

  • January 15, 2010 at 12:17 pm: sarah

    Anyone up for doing one of these in Boston?

  • January 15, 2010 at 1:23 pm: Laura

    Yeah someone post details if there is a Boston one in the works.

  • January 15, 2010 at 1:29 pm: Vijita

    We have a date set for Vancouver BC (January 29th). Location will likely be the University of British Columbia but more details to come!

  • January 15, 2010 at 1:34 pm: autumn

    i would love to make some gluten-free vegan treats for a bake sale in NYC… or help in another way. let me know.

  • January 15, 2010 at 2:04 pm: Christina

    A group of us is interested in doing a sale in the akron/canton/kent, ohio area. We’ve never done this before though…can I get some tips? How much do we need – if five people make 4 dozen whatever each – is that even close to enough? What about location and getting the word out in a not so vegan community?

  • January 15, 2010 at 2:17 pm: katieud

    Christina, If you get one going in Ohio I’ll come help out and bake!

  • January 15, 2010 at 2:26 pm: IsaChandra

    Megan – is there a contact of more info for the MPLS one?

  • January 15, 2010 at 2:57 pm: IsaChandra

    Christina, I posted a thing about setting up a bake sale fast yesterday.

    I think that it might be a good time to introduce non-vegans to a vegan cupcake. Make the invitations friendly, make the treats appealing looking and you just may open hearts and minds!

    Bake sales can vary in size, 5 people making 4 dozen treats each sounds like (I suck at math) you’ll make a few hundred bucks. And at the very least you’ll get some experience at bake sales, bring people together and make new friends. Yay.

  • January 15, 2010 at 2:58 pm: Jessica

    I would like to start something in Chicago or the Chicagoland area. I don’t know many other vegans though and I have no idea where to start. Is anyone else interested in doing one for Chicago?

  • January 15, 2010 at 3:10 pm: Christina

    Thanks Isa…I just saw your other post…sorry for missing that earlier! I’m good with a few $100 bucks to start. Let me see if I can find a location and I’ll be in touch.

  • January 15, 2010 at 3:19 pm: IsaChandra

    Jessica, there is someone on the PPK forums asking about Chicago as well. Why not connect with her?

    I will also post on twitter if any Chicago people have ideas for locations.

  • January 15, 2010 at 3:22 pm: Jessica

    Thank you so much Isa!

    Vegas is starting to get it together. Most likely, Vegas Veg (http://vegasveg.com) will have a Vegan Bake Sale for Haiti at UNLV towards the end of January. We’ll probably be working with a student environmental organization and/or the local Food Not Bombs.

    Hi Isa! Vancouver PPKers have teamed up with local vegan restaurant Radha for a bake sale fundraiser for Haiti featuring live music by Be Good Tanya’s member Frazey Ford, and an art opening. We’ll probably have a 5-10 dollar cover for the music (with all the proceeds going to the Humanitarian Coalition for Haiti), and we are holding the bake sale during Radha’s dinner service on Thursday Feb 4th (6-10pm) It’s going to be AMAZING!

    UPDATE for Falls Church, VA bake sale. Due to ominous-sounding snow alerts, we have pushed back the bake sale one day. It will now be Sunday Feb 7, from 2pm to 6pm. Same venue (Falls Plaza Giant supernmarket). Facebook event page is: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=257440961644. Sorry about the last-minute change. It was a tough call. But let’s make it a great bake sale!

    Falls Church, VA Vegan Bake Sale for Haiti – Sunday, February 7, 2pm – 6 pm.

  • February 3, 2010 at 9:33 pm: wintergreens

    Attention wintergreens members, Hudson Valley Compassion groupies, arm wrestlers, roller derbyists, farmers, activists, quilters, queers, country singers, chefs, hairstylists, veterinarians, cyclists, bloggers, and craft queens:

    We’re putting together a fundraiser for 2 groups doing good disaster relief work* in Haiti in the aftermath of the earthquake. We need your help:
    1 – getting the word out (flyer attached to this mail)
    2 – baking, cooking, or making small artworks for the sale
    3 – working the event
    4 – coming and buying stuff

    In solidarity with other Vegan Bake Sales for Haiti, ours, too, is a Vegan Bake Sale. But my pickles are better than my cookies, so we’ll be deviating a bit and also catering to customers who yen for salt, salsa, or spring rolls. And there’s one more way our bake sale is a little unusual. Since it’ll be taking place during Beacon’s Second Saturday artwalk, it made sense to ask all our artist and crafty friends to donate small works, which will be made available at the sale. (Nothing priced over $20, please, and please, no animal products. The point is to help some without hurting others.)

    Yes, a quilted bowl makes sense.
    Yes, a CD of your music is great.
    Yes, your homemade granola is superb.

    Do whatever you do best! To make donations, contact wintergreenscsa@gmail.com.

    The Hudson Valley “Vegan Bake Sale for Haiti: Sweets, Savories, and Still-lifes” will take place Saturday, Feb. 13th at 6 pm, Zora Dora’s Paleta Shop, 201 Main Street, Beacon, NY.

    All proceeds go to relief workers, Food for Life, and animal rescue group, Sodopreca, both on the ground in Haiti.

    I found this new product called Happy Pho by this company called Star Anise Foods – it’s a tasty Vietnamese brown rice noodles soup that I’m literally addicted to as I can get a nutritious vegan meal together in 10 mins. You can get them at Amazon.com or grocery stores in Northern California. Yum! ttp://staranisefoods.com/find-us.aspx
