"What Is the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale?
On April 20 through May, groups from across the world will hold vegan bake sales. Each participating group gets to choose its venue, what to sell, and how it uses the proceeds. We invite you to participate! You can hold the bake sale on any day during the period—or on more than one day if you like. Just about anyone can join in.
In the first four years (2009-2012) of the event, participating groups have raised close to $200,000 for a variety of causes. This year, perhaps 150 or more bake sales spanning six continents will likely raise another $50,000 for their causes. Some of the bake sales have been remarkable; all have been memorable (here are some highlights)
The Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale was named the 2009 "Veg Event of the Year" by VegNews Magazine, and past two years it has been featured on CNN.com."
