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.

*Updated 4/1/2011* There is another Boston area location: Upstairs On The Square, 91 Winthrop St., Harvard Square, Cambridge.

anonymous - Welcome and thanks for the sweet words! Not sure about the time tracking app. You'd need to speak to one of the people in charge of the event.

bellini valli - I hope we can make plenty of sales!

That's mighty cool. I wish there were more locations.

Lisa said...

tera - Thanks! Hopefully!

suldog - I guess it was up to business owners to provide the space and for people to volunteer to work the space. This was the one for Boston. It's actually fairly easy to get to though, even from Quincy.
