Happy days are here again with the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale! From April 25th to May 3rd, vegan bake sales will be happening worldwide. Anyone is welcome to attend and enter the baking categories (it goes without saying that entries must be vegan!). Named Veg Event of the Year by VegNews Magazine, the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale has raised over $300,000 in its first six years.
See if there’s a vegan bake sale near you at http://www.veganbakesale.org/
Melbourne is lucky to have two vegan bake sales running. Animal Liberation Victoria (ALV) together with True Earth Market will be hosting a bake sale at CERES Environment Park in Brunswick on April 26th from 11:00 to 5:00pm. The categories you can enter are Cakes and Cupcakes; Other baked goods (sweet pies, slices, biscuits etc); Savoury; Raw; Gluten Free. If you don’t want to enter you can donate a plate of goodies to be sold to help fund raise for ALV. The event program for the day includes food demos, vegan BBQ, stalls and entertainment. Lots of awesome! The event program also gives you more info about entering the baking competition, so please have a read if you want to enter.
True Earth Market will feature vegan stalls on the day. True Earth Market promotes independent ethical small business and you can pick up some beautiful handmade jewellery, clothing, ceramics and giftware at the bake sale and at the market days.
Entry is gold coin donation and all proceeds will go to ALV to help support their vital rescue work and campaigns.
The second bake sale will be hosted by Sea Shepherd in Williamstown on April 26th at 12 noon. All proceeds go towards Sea Shepherd Australia. The Steve Irwin will be open for free tours, making this a great family event!
Sea Shepherd held a vegan bake sale last year, which you can read about here.
I’m planning on attending the CERES bake sale and possibly entering a category or two!
These are fantastic fund raising events, with the money raised being put towards such important, life saving work.
Are you planning on going to bake sale event near you? And will you be entering the competitions?!
