What are your plans for Halloween?
Did you know that it’s the last weekend of our month-long baking campaign for breast cancer research?
What started three years ago as a way to continue to spread my mother’s culinary legacy among family and friends has grown exponentially beyond our wildest dreams.
From radio interviews to on-air exposure to dozens of writers supporting our efforts, the power of promotion coupled with an authentic fundraiser that simply requires baking sprinkled with some love, has turned Bake it Happen into a huge success.
Seeing pictures submitted of mom’s recipes baked by friends and family to complete strangers from across the country, is emotionally overwhelming.
To my sister and me, as corny as this might sound, baking equals love. Sharing delicious baked goods is what my mother enjoyed doing. It brought people together and created so many personal connections that still remain so strong, even years after her death.
So of course, with only one weekend left, it’s our last-ditch effort to get you to join us and BAKE IT HAPPEN.
Last year we helped to raise over $15,ooo for our partner, The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation, which was in turn granted to one Dr. working tirelessly in the field of breast cancer research.
Let’s beat that monetary goal.
Remember, this campaign is unlike any others. You don’t have to RUN in a RACE, or CLIMB a MOUNTAIN.
You don’t even have to HOST a BAKE SALE and solicit people for MONEY.
All YOU have to do is BAKE one of Judy’s recipes on our site and SHARE them with your friends.
Then UPLOAD a photo of your goods with #bakeithappen. That’s IT!
Every time a photo is uploaded, $10 will be DONATED to the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation.
Check out some of our favorite photos and JOIN US, it’s too easy and tasty to pass up. Your trick or treaters will LOVE these treats:
