Online Bake Sale for the Victims in The Philippines

Today’s post is a little different than my usual recipe and review posts.  This post is near and dear to my heart.  I hope you’ll take a moment to read through it.  I promise, I’ll keep it nice and short. 

I’m sure many of you heard the devastating news about the super typhoon, Haiyan, that hit Philippines on November 7, 2013.   Thousands were left homeless, injured, and many lost their lives and families.  You can read more about the updated news here on CNN.

My Blogger friend, Tina, from Pinay Cooking Corner is hosting an online bake sale to raise funding to aid the victims from the Haiyan typhoon.  Please click here to read the details about the bake sale and how you can help

To show my support for Tina's effort, I’ll also be donating 2 dozens of Mocha Hazelnut Biscotti for the bake sale  (see picture below).

Mocha Hazelnut Biscotti--For Bake Sale

I hope you can lend a helping hand too!  You don’t have to be a blogger to contribute.  You can simply donate your favorite baked goods, bid on an item (or two), or, simply help spread the news about the bake sale.  That would be tremendous help!   Please note that the pledges for baked goods will be accepted on Tina's blog until Nov. 22nd and the bake sale will be held on Nov. 25th, 2013.  So, please sign up as soon as possible!

This Thanksgiving, I have many many things that I’m thankful for.  But most importantly, I’m thankful that I’m fortunate enough that I have the ability to help out for those who are less fortunate and those who are in need.  I hope you’ll join force for this great cause.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.

  2. Kudos to Tina and yourself. Sincerely its a great deed to show how we care in our own ways. Am loving the biscottis and for sure its will be a sell-out. I hardly bake Amy yet I have been involved in other ways of raising funds for the same cause.

  8. I was literally just considering how and when I could set up a local bake sale to raise awareness and add to the donation I have already send to Red Cross. I will most definitely visit and get in touch with her. Thanks so much for sharing this, Amy.
