Next week I’ll be participating in Bake for Hope. I found out about this event at Cupcake Camp, at Jen from Beantown Baker’s booth.
Per the website, Bloggers Bake for Hope is a virtual bake sale. Bloggers will donate their time, ingredients, and shipping costs so there are no expenses associated with this virtual bake sale. All proceeds from the bake sale will be sent to the Massachusetts Komen for the Cure. The virtual bake sale will take place on May 4-6, 2011. Buyers will make virtual pledges on the Bloggers Bake for Hope site, and at the close of the bake sale the highest bidders will be awarded the donated baked goods. They will make their donations via PayPal, and the bakers will then bake and ship their goods. Because the bakers are donating their ingredients, time, and shipping costs, there are no expenses associated with the virtual bake sale. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Massachusetts Komen for the Cure.
I’m going to be making my M&M Cookies with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chips for this event. You can view these and all the other items available for auction here. I hope that on May 4th you’ll head over to the site and bid on some baked goods (there are some awesome looking treats on there)!!
