NEWS:
Shout-out to Vegetarierbund Deutschland (VEBU). So far, seven regional chapters of VEBU, all across Germany, are participating in this year's Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. VEBU had strong participation last year, also. Danke!
Veggies Catering Campaign
Shout-out to Veggies Catering Campaign, which has supported and participated in the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (WVBS) since 2009.

It's an amazing group:
“Veggies is volunteer-led, a community-based, social enterprise, promoting vegan catering and supporting campaigns for humans, other animals and the environment since 1984.”
Veggies also strives to provide local, organic, and fair-trade foods.

This year, you can find Veggies participating in the WVBS in Nottingham and the Derbyshire Peak District.
Here's another widespread initiative based on sales of tasty vegan treats that we like: Animal Rescue Bars. Fifty percent of all sales go to animal rescue organizations.

These "Peanut Crunch Nutrition Bars" and the awesome idea behind them were started by animal advocate Andrew Kirshner, with help from his long-time canine companion, Pretzel.

You can buy the bars online here (U.S. destinations only, for now). The longer range plan is to have them sold at stores and other retail outlets.

For more details, visit http://kirschnerskorner.wordpress.com/2014/03/21/check-out-the-new-kirschners-korner/.

Vegan, organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free.

A box of Animal Rescue Bars might even work well as a compliment to other offerings at a vegan bake sale.
Shout-out to l'Association Végétarienne de France (AVF), and specifically to Isabelle Dantzer, who manages AVF's Facebook page.

She/AVF had a great post about the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale, which thousands of people have seen, and which generated lots of shares, enthusiastic comments, and interest, and—best of all—has already inspired two signups from France, bringing the total number of of participating bake sales in France this year to three (so far)!

Merci beaucoup to Isabelle and l'Association Végétarienne de France!

(Click here for the French version of our "What It Is" page.)
We're getting new signups every day (though still looking for the first bake sale this year from Asia)! What about your group? We try to make participation in the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale as easy as possible:
Next up in "thoughts and experience from Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (WVBS) veterans" are the awesome NYC Vegans. They have participated in the WVBS since the beginning; the last five years, their bake sales have been at the wonderful MooShoes store.

Why do you participate? (And do you have any tips?)

This will be our sixth time participating in the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. We're not an organization, just a group of people living in and around New York City who like to bake and support organizations who do good work for the earth and the animals on it. We're always pleasantly surprised by the number of people who step up to help when a call to action is posted on a message board, Facebook or Twitter. These are probably a Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale organizer's greatest tools (after a fork and mixing bowl). We love the WWVBS for bringing the NYC vegan community together for a great cause every year and giving us an excuse to learn about new organizations we want to support.

For more details on this year's NYC Vegans participating event, benefitting GooseWatch NYC, click here.
We're one month away from the official start of the 2014 Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale. So far, there are participating vegan bake sales on five continents. We just need Asia, to have all the continents participating (not including Antarctica).
The next Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (WVBS) veteran in our series is Dallas Rising, Executive Director of the Animal Rights Coalition (ARC) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The ARC has participated in the WVBS every year since it started 2009 and Dallas has been the point of contact for each of those bake sales.

Why do you participate?

The Animal Rights Coalition participates in the World Wide Vegan Bake Sale every year because it's a fun way to build community, a simple way to share vegan baking and delicious food, and an easy way to raise money for the programs and campaigns our group works on year round. The huge bake sale in the spring is something the people look forward to every year and as the years go by, we have been able to make the event better and better each year. It helps get the word out about our organization and raise much-needed funds at the same time.

Any recommendations for groups considering participating?

The best piece of advice that I have is to encourage people to bring their own containers for goodies to be nicer to the planet and to consider making signs ahead of time that can be filled in with basic info when people arrive with goodies so the baked goods can get out for sale right away. Also, encourage all of the bakers to invite their friends to come! You'll bring in people who wouldn't normally show up to a vegan bake sale just because they want to support their friend.

2014 Atlanta vegan bake sale poster
New feature—some experiences and thoughts from Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale veterans who have participated since it started in 2009. First up: Leigh Saluzzi, co-organizer of the Atlanta Veg Fest and its fundraising vegan bake sale.

Why do you participate?

I love to bake, and I love to show people how tasty vegan baked goods can be. Also, any excuse to raise funds for a good cause is all right by me. Bonus: cake! cookies!

How has the WVBS helped your group's efforts?

2014 will be the third year I've been involved with a WWVBS sale specifically to raise funds for a non-profit event I help organize, Atlanta Veg Fest. The bake sale helps us afford to put a deposit down on the event venue, which is a great help. The bake sale also allows us to spread the word about Atlanta Veg Fest and get people excited about what's to come.

Any recommendations for groups considering participating?

Do it! It doesn't matter how small your sale is. A vegan bake sale is such an easy way to feed people good vegan food and raise some money for any organization you like. As far as “Pro Tips,” I can tell you that people want both sweet and savory options, so don't shy away from baked goods that aren't dessert like cheesy biscuits, mini pizza rounds, mini quiches and the like. And don't forget the gluten-free options. In my experience, the highest selling items tend to be more decadent items like cupcakes, and less likely to be things like muffins and small cookies. Want to make a cookie more desirable? Stuff two cookies with frosting for a cookie sandwich! That way you make something extra fun and you can also raise more funds by charging a bit more. And consider selling bags of things, like six cookies to a bag, or a bag of crackers. A clear cello bag with a bow will make these items appealing and a definite sell.

West Orange vegan bake sale, 2013
Two early participating vegan bake sales are happening in New Jersey this weekend!

This evening, the Vegetarian Society of South Jersey will combine a vegan bake sale and potluck in Marlton. [More info here.]

On Sunday, the “Vegan Joisy Goils” are returning with a vegan bake sale in West Orange along the St. Patrick's Day Parade route. (More info here.)

So lots of awesomeness in New Jersey today and tomorrow!
Here are two great projects that are basically year-round vegan bake sales—so they deserve a spot on the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale schedule!

Each week, Cookies with Compassion – Baking & Crafting for Refuge offers a selection of homemade vegan treats to a limited number of people who donate $25 or more to that week's designated animal sanctuary that promotes veganism. The vegan goodies and the sanctuary change each week. There are some other details you need to know before participating (though it's very easy), which you can find out on the Cookies with Compassion Facebook group.

The Vegan Cakery is a non-profit, award-winning vegan bakery in Leicester, England. Each month the bakery designates a charity of the month, to which a percentage of proceeds are donated. Ordering is online; delivery is to anywhere in the UK, and hand-delievery within a five-mile radius.

You can learn more about both of these awesome programs through the links here or through the “online” section of the WVBS schedule.
Our web host's email server was down for several hours. During that time, any emails to info@veganbakesale.org—and signups!— did not go through, and you will need to re-send for us to get them. We are very sorry (and frustrated) about that inconvenience!
We now have translations of the "What It Is" page in French and German. You can get to each version of the page from any other version of the page.

Announcing the Third Annual
WORLDWIDE VEGAN BAKE SALE TEE SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST
Artistic people: Here's a fun way to be involved in the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (WVBS), and maybe become famous!

This year's contest will be almost exactly the same as the two prior years' contests. The main difference is that we have some new helpful info for contestants. Here's how it works:
  • Send your design to info@veganbakesale.org by March 2, 2014.
  • One week later, we'll announce two winners!
  • We'll create tee shirts (and maybe other products down the road, such as aprons) emblazoned with the winning design, and sell them on the WVBS Zazzle store. We'll proudly and enthusiastically mention the designers and link to their websites or portfolios in the product descriptions. Of course, the winners get free shirts.
  • Profits from shirt sales go to A Well-Fed World, sponsor of the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale.
More Info:
  • The design is for the front of the shirt. (The shirts won't have any design on the back.)
  • We only sell sweatshop-free shirts. Most of the shirts in this category are available in multiple colors, but the organic shirts are only available in "natural" (off-white)—so the design should look good against this background. If you click around on any of the shirts in our Zazzle store, you can see all the available background colors.
  • The size of the image should be either 14 inches by 12 inches OR 12 inches by 14 inches, as described here: http://www.zazzle.com/mk/custom/imageguidelines. There is no limit on the number of colors in the design. The design must include "Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale" (but no year; when we asked some WVBS participants, they overwhelmingly preferred no year on the shirts). Optionally, you can also include the WVBS URL—www.VeganBakeSale.org.
  • For the contest, you can send a jpg, png, gif, or pdf file, or a link. (We'll want hi-res—300dpi—versions of the winning designs eventually.)
  • The judges will be the WVBS Board of Advisors (which helps out with the WVBS in various ways) and three mystery guest judges.
  • None of the judges knows the identities or names of any of the designers, or even when they submitted their designs.
  • None of the judges or anyone in their families, or anyone working for or closely afilliated with A Well-Fed World can enter the contest.
  • Last year's winners cannot enter this year's contest.
  • For everyone else: You can enter—and even submit the same designs (unless they won already) —year after year.
For more details on the contest, including licensing agreements, final image requirements, and how to preview your design before submitting it (recommended), please click here.

If you have any questions about the contest, please ask us at info@veganbakesale.org and we'll get back to you quickly!

Let the excitement begin!
We're getting the web site and materials ready for 2014! Recently added: a section on the “What It Is” page about how commercial establishments such as bakeries, restaurants, and stores can participate.
The "official" dates of the 2014 Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale are Saturday April 26, 2014 through Sunday May 4, 2014.
Along with the "official" Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale week starting late April, another popular time for vegan bake sales is around the holidays—i.e., right now. Look at this beautiful setup by Becky and friends in Appleton, Wisconsin.
Pushpin map preview! Starting in 2014, each time a bake sale is added to the Worlwide Vegan Bake Sale, we'll add a pushpin to the Map of Participating Bake Sales. Here's the page, currently loaded with all the 2013 vegan bake sales.

Features so far:
  • Each time you go to that page, it randomly picks a bake sale on which to to center.
  • Click on a pushpin to get a little more info and link to the corresponding entry on the schedule page.
Planned features:
  • Links to the pushpin map from the main menu, home page, and schedule page.
  • A way to get back to the pushpin you were at if you went from the pushpin map to the schedule page.
  • More!
2013 participants — find your pushpin!
We added the first non-English coobook to our Cookbooks page: Vegan Backen, which is in German, has gotten great reviews, and was recommended by a couple of Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale participants.

We want to add a lot more vegan baking cookbooks, in a variety of languages. Look for new ones on the page soon!
We tend to focus on vegan bake sales and occasionally general vegan topics, but we went outside our usual bounds on the Vegan Baking Tips page to offer solutions to two concerns:
  • Some chocolate is harvested with child labor. The Food Empowerment Project has compiled a list of companies that produce ethically-sourced chocolate (and ones that do not).
  • There is increasing concern over the impact of palm oil plantations on tropical habitat, which is home to many species, including endangered ones. Palm oil is found in a large number of products, notably buttery spreads. One solution is to make your own vegan butter; VeganBaking.net has recipes for multiple varieties.
You can link to this info from "Other Issues" under "Vegan Baking Tips" on the main menu.

2013 WORLDWIDE VEGAN BAKE SALE SHIRTS FOR SALE!
The new 2013 shirts are ready for sale at the Zazzle store!

Some background on the shirts... We endeavor to sell only sweatshop-free shirts. Unfortunately, those are the highest-priced shirts. All the shirts have the same base price, but light-colored shirts cost a little more than white, and dark-colored shirts cost more than light-colored shirts (Zazzle makes those rules).

However, Zazzle has sales almost every week, so take advantage of that when you buy. Click on the sales announcement that appears at the top of the page when you go to the store.

Feel free to try various shirt colors for a design; you may be pleasantly surprised at how different background colors bring out different parts of the design.

In addition to the awesome 2013 shirts by Reagan Kimball and Vik Jardine (see below for more info on the winning designers), you can also buy the awesome 2012 shirts from Jessi Van Pelt, Bonnie Goodman, and Amber Ford. Send us a photo of you wearing one of the shirts (preferably at a vegan bake sale!) and we may feature it in our 2013 highlight pages—with your approval, of course!

Note: Zazzle is not limited to the United States! To use Zazzle from countries around the world, click on your country of choice here, then add "/veganbakesale" to the url in your browser window or serarch on "veganbakesale." in the Zazzle search form. Then almost everything you see will be in your chosen language and currency.
Winners of the
2013 WORLDWIDE VEGAN BAKE SALE
TEE SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST
...And the Winning Designs!
Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry for our tee shirt design contest!


 
The voting committee (which did not know the identity of any of the designers) deliberated and the voting was close, like last year, but two winners emerged. And here they are:

Reagan Kimball (top design) of Maryland owns RK Design and Printing (website under construction). She has created designs for a number of vegan outreach events.

Vik Jardine is originally from France, currently living in Germany. Her portfolio is here and, specifically, a showreel of her video work is here.

Major shout-outs to Reagan and Vik!

We hope to have these new designs on shirts in our Zazzle store, ready for sale, by tomorrow. We'll give all the details here and on our Facebook and twitter pages.

Thanks once again to everyone who sent in a design. We will do this next year!
(FYI—and bad timing—currently Zazzle is having some problems, so the Zazzle link on the left is displaying incorrectly; but the part of the link that says “view more products by veganbakesale” still works! The problem is supposed to be fixed soon.)
A first for the Wordwlde Vegan Bake Sale! Our sponsoring organization, A Well-Fed World, placed a full-page ad for the WVBS in E/The Environmental Magazine.
Much appreciation to Making My Mark and Shorganics blogs for featuring an interview and guest post, respectively, about the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale! March is a crucial promotion month, so this really helps. Thanks for being awesome!

Certificate of Awesomeness and Appreciation
A long-overdue shout-out and thank-you to the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale Board of Advisors. These five people have helped the WVBS in a myriad of ways.

Though the board is informal, their advice and ideas have been a big factor in the success of the WVBS for the past year-plus. In addition, they each have been involved with WVBS as participants, and do lots of amazing things (vegan outreach and more) in other capacities.

So, thank you for your awesome help,

Becky
Dayna
Jamessina

Germany     Certificate of Awesomeness and Appreciation

We want to award our Certificate of Awesomeness and Appreciation to the entire country of Germany. Germany joined the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale in 2012 in a big way—with 14 vegan bake sales! You can view some of these fantastic bake sales in the highight pages.
Item! CBS is starting a new amateur baking competition show, and is looking for participants. Here's your chance to represent for vegan baking on a major TV network (and be a star)! The instructions for applying to be on the show are HERE. The deadline is December 15. Non-professional bakers only.

We are now part of A Well-Fed World!

The Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (WVBS) has grown over the years,and has become too big for Compassion for Animals, the group that started the event. We are happy to announce that the WVBS will now be a project of A Well-Fed World (AWFW), a vegan organization advocating for ALL people to have enough food and the right kinds of food...foods that maximize well-being and minimize harm to people, animals and the planet.

The WVBS will be just about the same as always, with the same people running it, and Compassion for Animals will continue to be a participant.

We'll have some more news about this exciting partnership down the road.
