It’s time again for this year’s Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale and out Austin contribution gets bigger and better every year!
me & Kristen at the Counter Culture sale last year
If you like you can still sign up to bake here http://tinyurl.com/2014AustinWWVBS
But if you want to help the leaders of Austin’s no-kill movement and thousands of pets find forever homes the best way is to let everyone know about the sale this weekend! Share our Facebook event! Harass your friends! Dedicate songs to us on the radio! Whatever it takes!
We will be at Wheatsville South this Sunday April 27 from 11:30am – 3:00pm
There will be gluten-free, soy free and savory items at the sale. And maybe even some dog treats.
The most exciting part is that we will also have treats from Sugar Mama’s, Happy Vegan Bakery, Red Rabbit Bakery, Mr. Natural, Patticake Cupcakery, Unity Vegan Kitchen, and of course Capital City Bakery.
Help us make this sale this best yet!
For 24 hours in Central Texas (and everywhere else) you can donate to the charity of your choice through Amplify Austin. Different Austin sponsors are matching donations left and right! It’s super easy and tax deductible. Many animal welfare organizations that have done a lot to make Austin a no-kill city are on the list.
Emancipet works to provide low and no cost spay and neuter services along with preventative veterinary care from the mobile units deployed in Austin’s underprivileged neighborhoods. Just $25 helps cover lifesaving vaccinations for one pet and $65 helps cover the cost of a spay/neuter surgery.
Austin Pets Alive! takes in animals and works to foster and adopt them all to homes at events all over towns. They were critical in helping all the pets displaced from the Bastrop wildfires last year and they have really done amazing things to make Austin no-kill.
These babies need your help!
There are tons of other shelters on the list including Animal Trustees of Austin, Austin Humane Society so check out the whole list.
Also, seeing as this is Texas, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas is constantly losing funding from the government, The Texas Legislature eliminated funding for women’s health–including cancer screenings, HIV tests, and birth control at Planned Parenthood’s E. 7th St. health center. Planned Parenthood has done so much to help nearly every woman that I know with low cost women’s reproductive services that I can’t help but mention them as well.
Please donate! Every little bit helps!
As Dale Cooper once said, “when two separate events occur simultaneously pertaining to the same object of inquiry, we must always pay strict attention”. In this case everyone’s favorite vegan restaurant Counter Culture is having a benefit for Austin Pets Alive, our amazing/large/inspiring no-kill animal shelter so pay attention! Sue has gotten together a bunch of local bands to perform 3 to 4 songs each about Cats & Dogs (she says “think Walkin the Dog, Leave My Kitten Alone, I Wanna Be Your Dog, Cool For Cats, Puppy Love, etc.”)
A portion of all the sales is going to be donated to Austins great animal shelter so come out! And don’t think you can use some sort of dietary excuse because Sue will feed you some delicious food whether you are gf-ing, E2-ing, soy free or whatever else you want to be. Even Paleo folks can come and eat a dang salad just like our ancestors did. And for everyone else there is going to be Tempeh BLT’s with Blue Sheese Dressing. I’m so there.
If you don’t come to the benefit this cat is going to be pissed off
