goodies for good: photos from our vegan bake sale for japan!

Posted on 04. Apr, 2011 by in out and about

After the earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan, some of my friends started planning a bake sale to benefit the relief efforts which was held today at What Cheer. We started with tables and tables packed with donated treats, and with over 300 RSVPs we sold out of food in about three hours.

Cookbook author Isa Chandra Moskowitz signed copies of her books and volunteers from all over the city came to donate baked goods and time. Several restaurants and bakeries donated treats, and What Cheer (our neighbors in the Mastercraft Building!) played host. After all was said and done that afternoon, we were able to donate over $3,000 to Shelterbox, to benefit the victims of the disaster in Japan.

Amazing photographer and cool dude Justin Limoges took these photos during the day.

I love living in Omaha and I keep getting prouder and prouder of our community. Thanks again to Justin Limoges for these photos. This is going to be an amazing year for us.
