Hello SF Vegan Bakesale Friends!
I’m writing about official SF Vegan Bakesale business today, but about another awesome event we need bakers and volunteers for!
By now, most people have heard about the U.S. House of Representatives voting to bar Planned Parenthood health centers from all federal funding for birth control, cancer screenings, HIV testing, and other lifesaving care. More info and a petition to sign here.
Well, a lot of us think that’s bullshit and we’re pissed. So we’re taking our frustration and turning it into something good. Enter: Cupcakes for Choice!
Cupcakes for Choice is an awareness and funds raising event for Planned Parenthood. It’s happening on Sunday, March 6th, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. in front of Mission Bicycle Company on Valencia in the mission (very close to BART!). We’ll sell cupcakes (or any baked good deliciousness volunteers make/bring!), distribute literature/collect signatures, and raise hell via sweet treat activism. We’d LOVE it if the treats you made were vegan because we’re all about spreading compassion (and tastiness, check out “vegan cupcakes take over the world” and vegweb.com for recipes!), but we won’t turn anything away and we’ll still shower you with love and appreciation and kisses (if you’re into that).
If you’re interested in baking (pretty please!) or volunteering, contact Robin at email@example.com. Flyers are coming so if you’d like some of those (we need help spreading the word!), let Robin know! For all other inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can’t bake or volunteer, please come to the event and bring all your friends and family and everyone ever. Here’s the Facebook event if you want to pass it around: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=191423287556036
I won’t bother you again about this (unless you sign up to volunteer &/or bake!) so if you’re coming, please mark it on your calendars and Let’s DO THIS!
Laura & Robin
