On Tuesday, October 4th, with the help of Sherry-Ann Bakeshop and Dani K Cupcakes & Sweets, we hosted a Meet & Greet Bake Sale Edition to raise funds and awareness for our rescued dogs and our foundation.
When you work in animal rescue, every day is World Animal Day. From morning till evening, you work, teach, learn, and try your best to make the world a better place for the abused, neglected, abandoned and homeless animals.
However, we couldn't let the official Animal World Day just pass us by without celebrating all the dogs we have saved over the last years and create awareness for all the dogs still waiting to be adopted and those out there who need our help. With the help of Sherry-Ann Bakeshop and Dani K Cupcakes & Sweets, we hosted a Meet & Greet Bake Sale Edition to raise funds for our foundation and awareness for our dogs.
We appreciate everyone's enthusiasm to order (cup)cakes and feel grateful to have such great supporters. We were surprised and oh-so touched by those who stopped by to give generous donations that will help us to continue our work. You are awesome.
A heartfelt "THANK YOU" goes out to long-time supporter Sherry-Ann, who initiated the idea of baking and selling (cup)cakes for CARF and who spent several days in the kitchen to mix, bake, and decorate cakes and pies. She got help from her friend Danielle of Dani K Cupcakes & Sweets, a working mom with a busy schedule, who didn't find time but who made time to offer a helping hand: "THANK YOU!"
We would also like to thank Supermarket Vreugdenhil for donating Nafl. 150,- worth of groceries, Industrias Leañez Tip Top who donated ingredients, and Caribbean Bakery Supplies. We could also count on support from Fam. A.J.J. Sprock, Fam. Koolmeijer-De Souza, Patrick en Citra (DeLeuksteTaartenshop Amsterdam), Martien en Anna (Caribbean Bakery Supplies) Rougenka Stein (SweetArt Curacao), Debby Eekman, Patrick Hira, Raymond Brandon, Carla Giskus, Gareth Weber, Kristel Hellburg, and Nicole Weber. Last but not least, we would like to thank our volunteers whose help made all the difference.
Thank you, everyone.
