2. Bake or Not – Craig Beifus?

You are invited to NOT bake a cake, pie, cookies, or brownies.

You do NOT have to find the recipe. You do NOT have to shop for the ingredients. You do NOT have to mix. You do NOT have to cook. You do NOT have to cut. You do NOT have to wrap. You do NOT have to wash dishes. You do NOT have to clean up your kitchen. You do NOT have to deliver the baked product. You do NOT have to stand in the heat/cold/rain to sell the baked product. You can donate to The Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group and stay home and enjoy doing something yourself or with your family!

In these busy days, who wants to bake, A pie or cookies or even a cake.

You?d be surprised if you counted the cost, of ingredients, heat, and the time you?ve lost. Baking for sales is extra work. Yet nobody really wants to shirk.

So we?ve thought of a plan that?s really grand, and feel quite sure you?ll understand. Simply donate here, the price?
of a pie or cake or anything nice.

Without fuss or bother, you?ve done your part.
We hope you?ll give with a willing heart.
Wishing success for our BAKELESS BAKE SALE,
This is the end of our little tale.
