Bakesale for Japan: Part 3

April 11, 2011

A little late, but here is the final part of the bakesale, the actual day of bakening! I mean reckoning. It was an overcast day, but as R and I pulled up a bit before 10 the place was already a crush of people clamoring for sugar.

There were so many baked goods that the organizer Paige had the overflow in her van to bring out later.

Cookie pops!

The thing that struck me the most is the community vibe. Most of the people walking past knew each other and everyone had a bright smile for their neighbors. Maybe I’m too California Silicon Valley jaded, but I’m not used to such a close community feeling. Go San Jose Japan town!

More yummyness

Everything was homemade, but people took a lot of time to do nice presentation and packaging.

The lady in blue is the organizer Paige helping to put my cookies out! She did a fantastic  job!

…and now the amount of money made for Japan recovery and relief

…drum roll

…flute line

…a little trumpet

$15,369.60!!!


Wow! It’s an amazing result and I feel grateful that I could contribute by doing something that I love and for a cause that is so close to my heart.
