Bake Sale A Huge Success!

Hey everyone,

As promised, I have updates from the Bake Sale For The Dolphins!!
I headed to Zen Zero around 11 am after work to set up everything in preparation for the sale.
People started bringing in their donated dishes for the sale, and everything was ready to go by 1pm! We set everything out to eat and had an amazing response. In total, there were around 15 individuals who donated vegan baked and raw treats. Also, the day was sunny and beautiful, perfect weather! Here's a sample of some of the treats enjoyed by all:
Chocolate Pie
Cookies & Cream cupcakes
Chocolate Ganache Cake
Apple Pie
GingerBread Cookies
Lemon Squares
Banana Crater Cake
Cinnamon Buns

The majority of these items were organic and gluten free, and of course all vegan. There was also a large number of raw goodies. I want to shout out a huge thank you to everyone who stopped by, donated money, donated treats, and helped sell. I especially want to thank Ryan, my partner for his amazing effort and care throughout this journey to travel to Taiji. He has been wonderfully supportive and helpful in every way possible.

The Bake Sale lasted 3 1/2 hours, just in time to start setting up for the screening of The Cove. The crowd was very receptive. Many came out in response to the story in the Newspaper earlier in the week. It was a huge success! We had some individuals come to see The Cove and learn about the dolpin slaughter for the first time. It was a very busy day and more than worth the effort. You can check out the story in the local newspaper here:

Thanks to all who participated!

Here are some pictures from the sale.

For The Oceans,

  2. We'll find some vegan goodies in Japan!

  3. You will and I hope you get the time to experience the place as we did. The locals are very friendly and react positively to those willing to engage with them positively. Enjoy your stay.
