Raising Funds & Awareness

I declare the Hudson Valley Vegan Bake Sale for Haiti a success! We raised $552 for Food for Life Global and Sodopreca, got a whole bunch of enthusiastic non-vegan people to create and donate animal-free food and artwork, and had a great time as well. It was a cold night, so we're especially happy that you all turned out to stuff your dollars in donation jars.

A lot of people asked, so I wanted to explain more about what Food for Life does. They are a disaster relief organization—what they are doing in Haiti is what they are pros at doing around the world when and where needed. They serve vegetarian meals, and so can serve about 3 hot meals for one dollar. That means our donation is making an impact.
More later on some of the creative people who made the fundraiser possible, and a success.
