Whitby Bakes for Japan

We went to the local bake sale, Whitby Bakes for Japan, with 100% of the funds going to the Red Cross relief effort in Japan, how could we miss it. I bought some of the prettiest cookies, (they were prettier before I brought them home) we had a little icing smushing in transit.  BTW they taste as good as they look. 
I also got some lovely paper craft items which were made and sent when a crafter in Japan heard there was going to be a bake sale to raise funds for the relief effort. That is my kind of lady :)

The event was packed, and lots of very tasty goodies were sold, as well as raffle tickets and paper items, and it seems OshKosh was donating one piece of child's clothing for  every paper crane made, let me tell you the origami table was busy and I have never seen so many paper cranes ! They also had a guest speaker, George Kourounis, from TVs Angry Planet. All in all it was a great event - I know it wasn't a telethon or some massive event but really it was one community coming together and helping out another community. I need to check in and see how much was raised. I will post when I know .
