Let's dooo it! Has anyone heard rumblings of this coming together? I will have lots of free time by then probably so I would if it's up in the air. I just don't know where to begin!

I'd be in. The weekend of the 23rd would work better for me (and Eric.) cause we will both be busy the next weekend.

Someone on the board once organized a bake sale at the Wooden Shoe book store and I remember it getting a lot of foot traffic. I am sure they would totally host a vegan bake sale again.

I was thinking that we could set up at the Whole Foods in Fairmount or on the Art Museum steps. Should we register for Philadelphia?

When I was at Wooden Shoe for the event 2 nights ago I thought it would be a good place for a bake sale!!
I am not free the first weekend so it would be cool if we planned two! People around the 23-24 can be in charge of that one and I can help be in charge of the April 30-May 1 weekend!

That looks like a great venue! I won't be available for Easter weekend (just realized this starts on Easter weekend). But I can def do the 30th or 1st. Randi let me know if you want me to do anything. I guess we need to do the following:

1. Sign up on http://veganbakesale.org/veganbakesale/index.html
2. Contact the Wooden Shoe and make sure they are ok with us coming and selling.
3. Decided what we are baking.
4. Get a table, chairs, vegan literature, bags, boxes, napkins, forks, and money to make change for people.
5. Decide who to donate the money to.

If the weekend of the 30th or 1st works best I can definitely atleast bake some goodies for it. I might be able to help out on the 30th but I won't be available on the 1st (running Broad Street, wahoo!).

Oh the Broad St run is the first? Then it is prob smarter to have it onSaturday sincethose runs can mess up traffic for a looong time. Wait - orrrr is it smarter to have it Sunday at a location close to the finish line???!!! People will need sugar after that shiitake!

cindeshelli and I were part of two of the vegan bake sales at the Shoe last spring / summer that Apron Activists did and I can confirm they were a big success and they raised a ton of money.

North Philly Food Not Bombs is kinda hurting for cash, so we actually targeted this as one of our possible fundraising options, but we've been delaying until warm weather to plan so that we get maximum impact.
If you guys would consider putting this together with us, we'd be super honored. Our cause is giving out free vegetarian meals in the streets. We need money to get our truck back on the road, among other things.

And as for Saturday vs Sunday... Saturday all the way. A warm spring Saturday = mind blowing South Street foot traffic.

Food not bombs or Japan. Isa posted in the foyer about donating her wwvbs money to something for Japan. I think they started a facebook page.

Oh awesome ok. So all proceeds go to relief efforts in Japan, we're good with that? I'm just going to call us the Philly Area Vegans or Vegan Rockstars or something. Any other suggestions? Also, May 1? Sunday better or Saturday?

Good with Japan. Or if we can do Sat and Sun. Maybe we can split the proceeds up and give to each? I think there are enough of us that we can do both days.

Ok! Going to sign up. Also my boyfriend suggested we call ourselves "International Vegan Conspiracy." I freaking love it. No? If you all don't suggest otherwise, I'm going with it!

K I signed up for April 30, Saturday. I can always add May 1 as a 2nd date, or we can list them separately if someone wants to be in charge of that one and I'd be in charge of Saturday? Don't know which way would be easier. Anyway hopefully soon you'll be able to see the listing on the website for the International Vegan Conspiracy! Hhahahaha I love it!

I'm 92% sure the Wooden Shoe would be fine with the bake sale, they're just collectively run so any decision has to be brought up at a meeting (held on Sunday evenings). I'm pretty sure I'd be in for baking something as long as I'm in town!

Hi Everyone! I am new to these forums, but I would really love to help out.
I have a wedding to go to on the 30th but I can still bake! I can also help out on the 1st if you decide to do a second date.
