The Bake Sale for Haiti results are in...

Thank you to friends who showed up yesterday to support the cause. And thank you to all who have offered a word of encouragement online! I know it's a small contribution to such an endless need, but I'm so happy to be able to use what I have to feel like I made a difference.

I am so thankful to Lacey who coordinated the Bake Sale for Haiti at Crema. She emailed this morning with the final results:

Okay everyone, we raised about $530 for Partners in Health! It was such a great turn out for such a last minute event. Thank you so much for spreading the word and for contributing such great goodies! Somehow News Channel 4 got wind of it and people heard about it on the news yesterday morning, too!

Just so you know, my friend Joy had a great idea to take the left overs to a local Catholic church called Holy Name, which is on Woodland St on the eastside. Their priest is Haitian and actually lost a brother in the earthquake... His congregation is hosting a Haitian mass tonight at 5:30 and are having a social afterwards so we were able to donate the rest of the baked goods to them for their event.

Just wanted to let you guys know how it turned out. Thanks again for all your work in pulling it off so well!
