For those of you in the Boston area, please come down and buy some treats and help raise money for a good cause. I'll be donating scones!
What's happening in Japan is a catastrophe of such epic proportions that I don't think I can even begin to comprehend what the people there are going through. I texted a donation to the Red Cross, but wanted to do something more. Last year I donated scones for an online bake sale raising money for Haiti. So when I heard about the Bake Sale For Japan, I was more than happy to pitch in.
This event is part of a nationwide effort with simultaneous bake sales happening at bakeries all over the country. For more information about the Bake Sale For Japan locations, please take a look here.
