***UPDATE*** Online Bake Sale for the Philippines: MEET THE BAKERS/DONORS!

Over the past two weeks, my family and I couldn't help but be heartbroken over the catastrophe that took place in the Philippines. Watching the news and seeing our fellow Filipinos suffering in the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda, with no food to eat and no place to stay, is something very hard, and we all wish we could do more. We all thought that hosting a fundraiser is a good thing to do, but with all the fundraisers going on in our area, there was no point in organizing another one. There came the idea of doing an online bake sale instead...where we can reach more people (not just our neighbors and friends) to help...which will mean a better chance of getting more donations for our "kababayans"(fellow Filipinos) in need. So last Thursday (Nov. 14), I launched Online Bake Sale for the Philippines...
My youngest daughter made this after watching on TV the huge devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan 
With just 4 days left before the bake sale goes live, I would like to take this opportunity to tell everyone that I am truly thankful for all the support I am getting for this event which will benefit Sagip Kapamilya, an emergency humanitarian assistance program of ABS-CBN Foundation, Inc. which provides food and non-food relief to affected communities of disasters, and do rehabilitation and disaster risk reduction projects. We now have a total of 43 baked goodies for auction coming from 38 bakers/bloggers including myself. Even Sabrina Modelle of The Tomato Tart who hosted the successful Online Bake Sale for Japan in 2011 is now with us in this Online Bake Sale for the Philippines!

With so much joy and gratitude in my heart, let me introduce to you the generous and kindhearted people who are with me in making our online bake sale possible. Without them, we wouldn't have delicious goodies to auction on Monday! :)
