We are proud to announce that we will once again participate in the Great Glebe Garage Sale on May 26, 2012 from 9 am – 3 pm, by hosting a yard sale / vegan bake sale in support of Project Jessie and the Ottawa Food Bank.
75 per cent of proceeds will be donated to Project Jessie and 25 per cent will be used to purchase and donate healthy vegan food items to the Ottawa Food Bank. Items that can’t be sold will be donated to local non-profit thrift stores. Project Jessie works to protect companion animals that may be legally surrendered to research facilities after 72 hours in a shelter in Ontario.
But to do this we need your help! We need your junk, and your baking prowess. Last year we raised nearly $900 for the causes, and people were going wild for our vegan goodies. Show us what you’re capable of! This is a fabulous opportunity to not only raise money for two great causes, but also to showcase your baking skillz. Note that all baked goods must be vegan (free of all animal products including meat, eggs, dairy and honey). If possible, please provide an ingredient list with your baked goods.
We’ll need volunteers on Saturday from 7 am-4 pm to set up, take down, and run the sale. If you can come for even part of the time, that would great. It’s a lot of fun, and you get a chance to talk to a LOT of people about vegan baking and lots of good stuff.
We welcome ALL donations though, for obvious reasons, we won’t be able to sell things like fur coats. We have no strict definition of what is and is not appropriate for a NCVA sponsored yard sale – just use your own best judgement when deciding what to donate.
Finally, if you have tables, blankets, table covers, and / or coolers that we could borrow for the please bring those as well. We will be sure to get them back to you!
