the great american bake sale {johnson city tn photographer}

I am so happy I was able to be a part of such a great event!!  Thanks again to everyone who participated - by baking, volunteering time or buying goodies!!  Despite the {extremely} cold weather we had a great turn out!!

The Great American Bake Sale is a national fundraising effort that encourages Americans to host bake sales in their communities to help end childhood hunger.  100% of the proceeds will go towards this mission.  Did you know that nearly 1 in 4 children in America will struggle with hunger??  That's almost 17 MILLION kids!  I can't think of a better reason to load up on homemade goods and give what you can to children who need it!!!

I am so happy to announce that we raised almost $800 for the cause!!!!  Our goal was only $200!!!  Thank you again to EVERYONE who helped out in one way or another, it amazes me what we accomplish when we work together as one and how many good and giving people there are out there.  =)  I wish I would have taken more pictures, but here's a little glimpse into the day.
