I know ya'll have been anxiously waiting for a write-up on the Bake Sale for Japan
. I don't have many words to say besides it was incredible! I'm still in awe over how many bakeries, bloggers, volunteers all contributed to this day. The weather couldn't be more perfect for a bake sale - considering we were having icy rain just the day before!
My co-coordinator, Celia from Cookbook Archaeology
sums it up pretty well in her post
. All of the planning came together wonderfully in the end and we could not have asked for better results - the NYC Bake Sale raised $4644
for Peace Winds America/Japan and the national total is now at
$120,254.38 $124,120.38 and counting! [Updated 6/13 - Grand total: $140,121.88]
Seeing the smiles on the volunteers' faces and constant stream of people stopping by to pick up something sweet to help Japan was truly a blessing! It was a pleasure meeting and working with you all!
