cookie1DETAILS: “We know about earthquakes here. Very few of us have ever experienced one as strong as 7.0, but we can only imagine the lasting devastation affecting every aspect of life in Haiti after such a huge tremor. Please join us in doing what we can (baking cookies, eating cupcakes, hanging out at Scoops, raising money) to help out the people of Haiti.

We will be featuring a dizzying array of sweets from both professional kitchens (Spork Foods, Whisk LA whoopie pies, and Bitter Sweet Treats, Valerie Confections, Large Marge Sustainables) and local homes, as well as a few jars of choice homemade jams, and all proceeds from the bake sale will go to Doctors Without Borders‘ (Médecins Sans Frontières) Emergency Relief Fund. Doctors Without Borders a Nobel Prize-winning international humanitarian organization working to meet the overwhelming medical needs of post-earthquake Haiti and throughout countries where survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe.”

If you’d like to be more involved, love to bake and want to donate a few of your favorites, just let them know and they’ll e-mail you more information. If you can’t make it to the bake sale but still want to help out, they’re requesting that people take a moment to mail a check directly to Doctors Without Borders with “Cookies Without Borders Bake Sale” on the check.
