I found out about a spectacular event that takes place every Spring and I guess you could do it year round if you wanted too. I was flipping through the channels the other night waiting for dinner and I stopped at the Food Network. (One of my many inspirations for being in the kitchen all the time).
Sandra Lee was doing a commercial about a Great American Bake Sale. The lightbulb went off immediately in my head. What a wonderful idea.
Share Our Strength Great American Bake Sale, is a national campaign that mobilizes Americans to end childhood hunger by holding bake sales in their communities.
Nationally, more than 12 million children are at risk of hunger. Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale proceeds are granted to organizations in communities across America to help provide at-risk children with nutritious meals when they’re needed most-during the summer, and after school. Additionally, proceeds support Share Our Strength’s Operation Frontline®, a chef-led nutrition education program for low-income families.
I signed up to do the event on April 4th. I’m so excited to be able to help the community. 100% of funds raised through my Noel’s Kitchen Great American Bake Sale will be used to ensure America’s most vulnerable children-those living in poverty and at risk of hunger get the regular, healthy meals they need, where they live, learn and play.
My goal realistically is $500. If we make more, even better. There are so many people who need a little extra help. If anyone would like to do an event of your own or wish to make a donation, visit http://gabs.strength.org/site/TR?pg=team&fr_id=1080&team_id=47191.
This is one event where I am not advertising my High Quality Kitchen Tool business but the event itself and what it stands for.
I’ll keep everyone posted on the event and the results!
