[social_buttons]From April 24 through May 2, vegan groups around the world will be holding bake sales to raise money for the causes of their choice.
Last year’s bake sale here in Atlanta raised $700 for Project Catsnip, and raising money isn’t the only way the bake sales make a difference. By selling their delicious vegan treats, Bake Sale participants help change the perception that the vegan diet is about deprivation and eating salads.
Folks don’t have to be vegan to participate, but their baked goods do. To that end, the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale website has some really amazing resources like this one, which lays out substitutions for eggs and dairy and common pitfalls.
For people interested in learning more about veganism, they also include an intro to veganism that gives a little bit of background and information on why many people choose a vegan diet.
Last year, there were hundreds of bake sales around the world, and they collectively raised over $25,000 for worthy causes while introducing countless people to delicious vegan eats! To find a bake sale in your area, check out the list of 2010 participants.
Interested in organizing a bake sale of your own? You can let them know about your bake sale through the handy form on the website.
