Austin Bakes for West

This month a little town in Texas called West suffered a devastating fertilizer plant explosion. Lives were lost, many were injured and homes were demolished. As you can imagine, this event has affected many of our friends and family, and the people of Texas are doing whatever they can to help. One event taking place here in Austin on Saturday, May 4 is Austin Bakes for West. Modeled after Austin Bakes for Bastrop and Austin Bakes for Japan, our goal is to raise $15,000 to go towards AmeriCares’ relief efforts for the town. Why AmeriCares? Because according to their 2012 fiscal report, every $10 cash donation can help them deliver $200 in aid. That’s something to think about when you hand over $10 for your choice of amazing desserts made my local Austinites.

We hope to see you at one of the locations listed below, where you can a) buy some treats and know your money is going to AmeriCares or b) bake something and drop it off before the sale. The first way to help is the easiest, but I have a feeling some of you are going to want to crank up the oven and get baking! For details on how to make a package your cookies and where to donate, here’s a link to the Bake Sale Signup.

If you’ve been reading about the explosion and wish you could help even though you are thousands of miles away and can’t drop off baked goods, feel free to make a monetary donation through the secure site.
