Bakesale for Bastrop coming October 1st

I remember after the bakesale that we had to raise money for Japan we all talked about how well it went and when we should all get together to have another one. We had no idea it was going to be to help our neighbors right here in central Texas. The wildfires have been disastrous and the one in Bastrop has yet to be contained… over a week later! It still smells like smoke in Austin and I keep reading the saddest stories from Austin Pets Alive about people going in to rescue pets that were left behind in their houses. Please donate if you can! They have been working so hard to take care of all the dogs and cats that were affected by these fires and they are struggling to keep up with medical treatments.

Just when I started to feel really helpless about the whole situation I got an email from the wonderful Kathryn who had already started organizing another massive bakesale. Since she put out the word over 100 people have already signed up with offers of baked goods! I am hoping that vegans are ready to participate in another bakesale. It was really great that we had vegan items at every single location last time! If you aren’t a baker there are plenty of other ways that you can help, please keep on eye on the webpage or follow on twitter or facebook to stay tuned. And if you are wondering what to make, check out this recipe roundups I did a few month ago.I still haven’t decided what to make.
