What does that even mean? It means we’ll be selling cakes and juice to anyone around Beirut By Bike area to the sounds of lovely tunes :) with all the money collected throughout the day going to charity. We will selling the piece for a very reasonable price 2000LBP and juice for 1000LBP. If passersby feel like giving more, we won’t object! We will also be bringing our smiles – these will be on the house of course!
When? The bake sales will take place every 4th Sunday of the month in the Beirut by Bike area at the Biel Water front. It will take place from 11am to 5pm. We will be selling baked goodies (cakes, cupcakes, and cookies) baked by you along with juice. These yummy goodies will be baked ans sold by YOU-- our awesome volunteers. A lot of you supported us in our previous bake sales. We want to ear from you. But we are also looking to having new bakers on board! J To this end, we are calling out for all of our volunteers to help us in being part of these bake sales. You can either bake for us or help us on Sunday in selling the baked goodies.
HOW can I be part of this? For our first bake sale we are aiming at selling 1000 pieces of cake. As such, we are looking for 20 bakers to bake us 50 pieces each of any baked goods of their choosing. Fifty might sound a big number, but as our avid baker Ruth Moucharafieh puts it: “to bake say 50 pieces of cupcakes for example, you will need to 2 Betty Crocker cake mixes which cost around 5,000LBP each meaning 10, 000LBP in total, and a bit less than an hour in the oven! As easy as this!” Also, if you get your friends, family, and neighbours to help out, you can double the fun and quantity of cake! In case you want to sign up to be with us on the day, we will be having two shifts: An 11am till 2pm shift and 2pm-5pm shift. You can either sign up for one shift or two! Feel free to bring your little ones (kids, siblings, your neighbour’s kids etc.). Kids love these type of activities –they will not only feel happy for helping those in need, but also feeling responsible early on.
WHY should I sign up for this? It’s only once per month, loads of fun (for you and your loved ones), doesn’t require a lot of your time (but requires minimum commitment on your behalf), if you’re an avid baker then this will be a no brainer for you, and if you’re not an avid baker then this will surely help you improve on your baking skills, and well, in the end, it’s for a GOOD cause! All the money collected in each bake sale will be used to purchase food items -“the basic Mouneh” items- for those who are in need. So there.
HOW can I sign up for this? It’s super easy, send us an email to: [email protected] with your name, phone number, and number of cakes you will be willing to bake for us (could be 50, could be less, and most maybe MORE. It’s your call!), and also if you will be willing to sell on the day (what shift/s), and if you will bringing someone along.
