The third annual Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (WVBS) is Saturday April 23 through Sunday May 1, 2011! And in a tradition started in 2009, our first public announcement of the event, other than in our own web pages, is here! Isa and the PPK have enormously helped the WVBS; one of the most prominent ways has been that the PPK forum has faciliated a number of collaborations that ended up as bake sales - THANK YOU!

More info about the WVBS, including how to sign up (it's almost too easy), what it is, and pictures and slide shows from the last two years, is at http://www.veganbakesale.org. We're also Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale on Facebook and wwveganbakesale on twitter.

For those who are unfamiliar with the WVBS...
- Anyone can participate.
- You can do whatever you want with the proceeds.
- It's effective but friendly, non-stressful vegan outreach, and can be paired with tabling, leafleting, 80s dance contests, just about anything.
- It connects people all over the world, including folks in places that have scant vegan support.
- So far it's raised over 65,000 dollars for a wide variety of worthy causes.
- It's FUN!

Spread the frosting and the love!

Okotoks and Calgary are doing the bakesales on the two Saturdays. Last year we raised over $2400 dollars for our local animal sanctuary!

Currently the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale is doing a contest. The next group or individual that signs up gets a free copy of "Quick and Easy Vegan Bake Sale" by Carla Kelly -- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/161519 ... 1615190260.

More info on the contest and book: http://www.veganbakesale.org/veganbakesale/index.html
WVBS simple signup form: http://www.veganbakesale.org/veganbakes ... ignup.html

We plan to do similar contests down the road with cookbooks from different authors (hiint).

Anyone in Maryland interested in doing this? I am the only Vegan I know in my area, but I might be able to possibly travel to one, if it is within 1 hour and a half to 2 hours, if bebeh Maxwell cooperates. Who could sell baked Vegan goodies better than a seriously cute Vegan bebeh!

The more groups the better, and there's an added level of awesomeness with PPK bake sale collaborations... but as a possible plan B... Probably some of the Maryland groups that participated last year will do so again this year, and also our Compassion for Animals group will be doing a WVBS bake sale at the first annual Baltimore VegFest on May 1. Here are the Maryland bake sales from last year's event: http://www.veganbakesale.org/veganbakes ... -2010.html (scroll down to "Maryland").

Doing this at work. Just need to choose a date. I'll probably be the only baker though... scary.

i'm doing this with a fellow vegan in my town! i really hope we can get at least one more person to help though. i feel like it's a little daunting with just the two of us. unfortunately, there aren't many vegans around here.

If I set up a vegan bake sale in TJ would any of the SoCal PPKers come?
I guess the answer is no, but I'm going to organize one anyway. I just have to pick the day!

We're planning our second annual WVBS here in Montclair, NJ! Any NJ ppkers looking for a bake sale, please join us or the one in Princeton on April 17. Any NY ppkers who want to come into the wilds of Jersey are welcome to come take a walk on the Dirty Jerze side.

So much awesomeness.

@teapot: Congratulations on winning the cookbook!

@teapot, Kitteh, Tofulish: Thanks for participating again this year! You all rock!

@RandiJM, creep, subliminalpanda, allularpunk, andi_vert: Some resources that may or may not help for finding bakers...

-- Participating groups by location last year: http://www.veganbakesale.org/veganbakes ... -2010.html
-- Participating groups this year; this list will gradually grow: http://www.veganbakesale.org/veganbakes ... where.html
-- Bake sale tips, including some on finding bakers: http://www.veganbakesale.org/veganbakes ... -tips.html
-- Also, often once you schedule your bake sale, that may attract more bakers. We can help, too, if you want, by doing shout-outs for bakers on the WVBS web site and Facebook and twitter pages.

@creep: one person will have held her bake sale at her office for three years; it seems to work well, for her anyway.

Of course you can! My bike loves a little publicity.

Ha - I realized the picture is part of the "World Wide Vegan Bake Sale - Montclair NJ May 1, 2010" Flickr album that the highlight pages link to already! Great way to promote, though, in any case!
