It’s October – there’s a chill in the air, the leaves are starting to change, pumpkin flavored everything has invaded every food establishment and grocery aisle – and it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Last year, my friend Shari Brooks and her sister, launched a brand new campaign that took a very different approach to raising money for Breast Cancer research – Bake it Happen. Due to the tremendous success of that first year, Bake it Happen is happening once again – with the same premise, only bigger, better, and sweeter.
The idea is the same – bake it, share it, win it (and trigger donations and awareness at the same time.) This year you can choose from 3 of the recipes from bakeithappen.net:
Simply bake the MyJudytheFoodie treat of your choice, and share it with the people in your life – and on social media with the hashtag #BakeitHappen. Every time you share a pic of your Bake it Happen moment a $2 donation will be made to the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation for Breast Cancer Research. (yes, pink pumpkins really exist – naturally!)
And, you will be entered to win an iPad Mini and 3 months of Baked by Melissa Mini of the Month Club.
We baked up pumpkin brownies, with a slight variation – making them more like pumpkin blondies with chocolate chips – but super delicious just the same!
Check out the campaign at bakeithappen.net and start sharing and raising money now! (and isn’t it so much better than dumping a bucket of ice on your head?)
