Greetings, Tampa Vegans!

My goodness, it’s been forever! But fret not, I’ve got a vegan fund-raising project in the works that I want to share with you. My idea is to run a holiday pie drive. Apple pies, chocolate pies, pumpkin and pecan–hand pies, turnovers, pies in jars, pies masquerading as dumplings–any pie will do. My idea is to take advance orders over the next few weeks and then periodically throughout the rest of the year. I could deliver for a small extra fee, or set up a pick up location at a bake sale. I would be interested in taking suggestions for how to best use the proceeds from the drive.

Please comment and let me know what you think! And potential volunteers interested in baking pies, holla at your girl!

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Protecting our literature!

Protecting our literature!

Wow! What a fantastic event! The Tampa Bay area deserves a sincere pat on the back for being so open and receptive to the first ever Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. Who knew Tampa was such a hoppin’ and vegan-friendly community?

It rained and lightning struck, but we were still able to deliver lots of homemade, delicious, and cruelty-free baked goods to the hungry masses. Over the course of our two-day sale, we were able to raise over $350.00 for the wonderful organization Florida Voices for Animals! According to an email from Jodi of FVA, “We have a lot of exciting plans coming up including grocery store vegan tours and an advertising campaign that this will help with.” So we are so happy that we were able to do a little good for such a great cause.

Thank you so much to Joan, Diane, Suzanne, Spencer, Andrea, Lynn of the Ybor Market, Dan, and my dear old mom and dad for all the help with the sale. We are already talking about next year and coming back to the market soon for more events!

The End is Nigh…

Tomorrow is the very last day of the Tampa Vegan Bake Sale! You do not want to miss all the delicious goodies. What’s better than eating a vegan 3-nut cookie? Eating a vegan 3-nut cookie with the knowledge that it is not only spreading awareness of veganism, but that the money earned is going towards such a fantastic cause.

Let’s try and outdo last week’s number so we can really do something great for Florida Voices for Animals!

Hope to see you there!
