The Vegan Bake Sale is only 2 days away! We are baking for the great organization Creatively Caring, founded by one of our very own group members, Anne Hoffman. Their mission is to "promote a spirit of community through hands-on family service projects that help people, animals and the environment."
Countryside Animal Friends, co-founded by another meetup group member, Belinda Draper, is sponsoring the bake sale. Please check it out and get involved! You don't have to be a member of Countryside in order to participate in the group. Countryside Animal Friends will be donating their portion of the proceeds to Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation in Barrington.
If you would like to donate a baked good, you can drop it off by 10:00am at Countryside, or arrange a drop-off at my house in Mundelein with me. Can't bake but want to enjoy the sweets? Come join us and purchase some yummy baked goods. (And don't forget to bring a container so you can take lots home with you!) I'll also have available for purchase Hannah Kaminsky's cookbook, "My Sweet Vegan." You may recognize Hannah from her popular blog, BitterSweet, or her articles in VegNews magazine. I'm pricing them at only $15.00, cheaper than Amazon!
If you are baking, please do your best to keep animal hair/fur from companion animals away from the baked goods. I know it can be difficult, but it's very important! Please also post a comment with what you are bringing so I can make price sheets and have an idea for what I may need to make more or less of. As you can see, there's going to be lots of delicious goodies available!
Date: September 25, 2011
Time: 10:15am - 12:00pm
Place: Countryside Unitarian, 1025 N. Smith St., Palatine, IL
Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope this finds you all well. Thank you for your support!
