September was a real doozy disaster-wise, and October looks to be shaping up much the same. Between earthquakes, hurricanes, and wildfires, it seems like the whole world could use our help.

Rather than trying to decide which of these tragedies to bake cookies for, we decided to raise funds for one organization that is helping out with all of them. Our citywide Bake Sale on Saturday, November 4, will be raising funds for Direct Relief, a highly rated organization providing disaster relief services worldwide.

We are currently looking for:

  • venues to host sale sites
  • sponsors to support the sale
  • volunteers to run sale tables
  • bakers to contribute goodies
  • volunteers to help with admin and organizational tasks
  • shoppers to make donations on Nov. 4

Sign up here to help bake or volunteer.

Contact us to offer your location as a sale site, to talk with us about sponsorship, or to volunteer with organizer tasks. We are in particular need of bloggers, photographers, and folks to help seek out sponsors.

RSVP to our event on Facebook and join our Volunteer Facebook group to keep up with sale news. Let’s raise some cash to help out our local and global neighbors in their time of need!
