Hope you enjoyed yesterday’s post from Shira on living with a little less, so others can have a little more. She is pretty awesome and I really commend her for her efforts to make a difference in the world.
After yesterday’s post went up I jumped on facebook to see what was going on and noticed that my friend was having a bake sale the next day. Not just any bake sale though!!! It was one to raise money for Live Below the Line, a campaign to raise awareness for those living below the poverty line. I figured it was more than just coincidence that I saw her notice, so I asked if I could contribute some goodies to the bake sale. Of course she said yes!
And with that I was off to the shops for a few supplies. I decided to make these Almond Butter Rice Crisp Treats from Angela at Oh She Glows. I really love her recipes! They are simple, yet delicious, and her desserts have NEVER let me down.
These treats were a breeze to put together and tasted like a million times better than your average rice crispy treat. I think the almond butter and chocolate topping sealed the deal for me. But I restrained myself to one square since the rest were for a good cause.
The Bake Sale seemed to go off without a hitch. Sarah and Mish are both participating in Live Below the Line, so each baked up a storm of goodies to sell. There were cakes, brownies, tarts, cookies and even some lovely decorated cupcakes! By the end of the lunch hour most of the items had dissapeared off the table, leaving the donation jar filled to the brim with coins and notes. Note: if you are fundraising, a bake sale never lets you down (I mean the girl scouts do it every year and we never get tired of those thin mints and samoas right?).
Although I’m not taking part in the event myself, I was really happy to help them out. I do what I can with what I’ve got, and that’s what it’s all about!
