Cookies Without Borders: A Bake Sale for Haiti

The mind behind No Cookie Left Behind – who has held three bake sales for Share Our Strength – is now turning efforts towards the people of Haiti. On Sunday, January 31st, 2010, come to Scoops Ice Cream to help out, hang out and come together for a common cause.

Featured will be a dizzying array of sweets from both professional kitchens (Spork Foods, Whisk LA, Bitter Sweet Treats [added: Valerie Confections and Large Marge Sustainables]) and local homes, as well as a few jars of choice homemade jams. All proceeds from the bake sale will go to Doctors Without Borders, a Nobel Prize-winning international humanitarian organization working to meet the overwhelming medical needs of post-earthquake Haiti.

Do you love to bake and want to donate a few of your favorites for the sale? Email Tannaz Sassooni herself (tannazie [at] gmail [dot] com) to coordinate that and for more info.

And if you can’t make the date, it’s possible to mail a check directly to Doctors Without Borders to benefit Haiti. Please write “Cookies Without Borders Bake Sale” on the check for reference.

In the meantime, I’ll see you at Scoops on Sunday. And while I’m at it, I’ll be checking out what crazy ice cream flavors Tai has cooked up at the moment…
