PDX Worldwide Vegan Bakesale Coming Soon

I'm happy to be involved again this year in one of PDX's Worldwide Vegan Bakesales. 

Our sale will be:
Sunday, May 4th 10AM-3PM
Mississippi Marketplace 
(near the Homegrown Smoker and Native Bowl carts at N. Mississippi and N. Skidmore).

More info on our fancy new website, and our Facebook event page. Signup sheet to help bake is here.

I'm really excited about our two beneficiaries this year: Chimpanzee Sanctuary NW, and Russia Freedom Fund

CSNW was founded in 2003 to provide sanctuary for chimpanzees discarded from the entertainment and biomedical testing industries. It has 26 acres and is one of the only US sanctuaries to care for chimps.

Russia Freedom Fund is a U.S. tax deductible vehicle for making financial contributions in support of the LGBT movement in Russia and efforts to combat discrimination and violence there based on sexual orientation and gender identity. This initiative responds to growing concerns about recent state-sponsored discrimination in Russia and expresses solidarity between the international LGBT community and allies, and the Russian LGBT movement.

We can use all sorts of help, but bakers are especially needed. If you can donate kitchen time, this link will direct you to a Google doc signup sheet for more info and specifics.

The last two years running we have brought in about $2400 dollars, and it would be so freakin' cool if we could break $2500 this year. This will only happen if we can get more folks to help us bake (click here for our signup sheet!!). We usually sell out of everything before 3PM. The more we have to sell the more we can donate.

Thanks! Please feel free to print out the PDF linked above (just click on the picture of the flyer) to share around town and with your friends.
