Hi, this is Gary Loewenthal with A Well-Fed World , and I want to invite you to participate in the fifth annual Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (WVBS), April 20 through April 28, 2013.
The WVBS was named “Veg Event of the Year” by VegNews Magazine, and was covered by CNN.com (www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/04/30/vegan.bake.sale/).
The idea is simple: Groups across the world hold vegan bake sales any time between April 20 and April 28. Participating groups can do whatever they want with the proceeds.
So far, groups around the world have raised close to 200,000 dollars via the WVBS for various worthy causes. Your bake sale can be a fundraiser for your group, or proceeds can go to a local or international charity – you choose.
www.veganbakesale.org has all the details, including a signup form, a schedule of participating bake sales, tons of bake sale tips, and links to thousands of vegan baking recipes. If you can bake, you can bake vegan. The www.veganbakesale.org web site has handy vegan baking tips to get you started.
Holding a bake sale may be easier than you think. Once you finalize your location, the rest is relatively easy. Again, the veganbakesale.org web site has lots of help.
A Well-Fed World coordinates global publicity for the event, and we leverage the event as best we can to get positive press about the bake sales and about the health, environmental, and ethical benefits of a plant-based diet.
You may be able to get funding for your bake sale! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your event to see if you qualify.
The sign-up form is at http://www.veganbakesale.org/veganbakesale/vbs-signup.html. For questions, or to sign up if you hate forms, please contact
email@example.com. We’re also on Facebook, and on twitter as wwveganbakesale.
We hope that participating in the WVBS is an exciting and fulfilling way to raise funds, and to be part of something bigger which helps the earth, animals, and humans. The camaraderie among the diverse participants across the globe is amazing and inspiring.
