The Portland Vegan Bake Sale for Haiti was a smashing success! Over 3K was raised (exact number tomorrow, I’ll let the bank count it), friends were made, community was built and tons of other wonderful things. All told, the vegan bake sales have raised over 25K so far. Hopefully our contributions will help a little bit. I feel grateful to be in a place where I can help, and I hope everyone else does, too. I’ll go to sleep tonight very aware of my place in the world and my duty to the all of the people and animals (and plants!) in it.
Big thanks to:
Monica Cuneo and People’s Co-op for donating such a perfect location. I hope we left it clean enough! Support your local vegetarian co-op, y’all. (I don’t say y’all.)
Mercy Corp! We are so happy to be able to give you guys money to do what you do!
Back To Eden and Dovetail bakeries for donating so generously and happily, and for being generally awesome and community minded (I mean, two vegan bakeries on the same street! Welcome to Portland!)
Kelly Clarke at The Willamette Weekly and Jen McCabe at Oregon Live for helping to get the message beyond all our Facebook friends. (For all other media who did not list it, what is your prob?)
Everyone who volunteered! Kittee, Jess, Kate, Natasha, Jessica (too many Jess’), and god I can’t remember everyone’s names, but you know who you are and you are amazing.
I am off to vacay so don’t expect too much from me this week. Just wanted to get in a quick internet hug and let everyone know how we did. <3<3<3 [|} [|} [|}
I leave you with more pics from the FlickR set:
