Share Our Strength ~ 4/17/10 Bake Sale Photos ~ Baking is my Zen (NJ)



Hi! Carmen here…welcome to my blog!

Back on April 17, 2010, I hosted the First National Food Bloggers Bake Sale (New Jersey) to benefit Share Our Strength. Their mission is to END CHILDHOOD HUNGER.


Our goal was to raise $500. WE RAISED $600!


PHOTOS of the BAKE SALE day are finally here. Preeti of Preetalina Photography photographed the event. 'Thank You' Preeti!

The bake sale was a lot of fun!

Lots of commitment and serious work went into this event.
We were a very small group, but a group that ran like a well oiled machine!
Kudos to all!


It is an honor to give back to the community. I plan to continue with many philanthropic endeavors in my lifetime. I encourage you...

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD!


So, time for some photos...

It was breezy on the day of the bake sale. So, had to wear my chef coat over my t-shirt.

Here, I'm wearing the t-shirt several days before the event. You can order your very own t-shirt from
Share Our Strength.

Peace,
Carmen
