Lizzie’s Bake Sale, a successful story.


 Is my friend Cindi.
Isn’t she a pretty little lady? 
She bakes a mean sweet treat, in many forms. 
She’s also EXTREMELY kind hearted. 
She is the gal who organized
Lizzie’s Bake Sale 
that was held this past Saturday.
Lizzie is our sweet 9 year old neighbor, who was diagnosed with Leukemia this past summer.
Cindi and I…along with many of our neighbors and friends put in a lot of hours this past week baking up all kinds of sweet treats for the Bake Sale.

Very Chocolate Cake with Hot Fudge….
were among the many sweet treats offered up.
Dark and early on Saturday morning I was baking up a grundle of Fabulous French Bread
And wouldn’t you know it!
It was raining cats and dogs outside.
Pouring, seriously.
The bake sale was slated to be outside in Cindi’s front yard. 
Bummer, I thought!
Soggy-Wet Sweet Rolls most likely won’t sale very well.

But then the rain stopped.
It got all calm, and mild, and wonderful.
We set up outside….
And then….

….the people came.
Lovely people, carrying a lot of kindness in their hearts.
Some of those people were you fine readers.
It was so very nice to meet you!
Thank you, thank you for coming, 
and supporting this cause.
It was so very good of you. 
 (FashionAnna and LittleTwinBoyNate)
The weather held for the first couple of hours, 
and we sold a lot of goods!

After that the wind really kicked up, and we moved the remaining sweet treats up and in to Cindi’s garage.
People kept on coming….!
 We kept dishing out the sweets.
 It was a wonderful success and we 
were able to bring in a grand total of
$2,300! for Lizzie and her family.
That is just amazing to me.
Truly amazing.
Thanks to all of you who baked your little hearts out.
Thanks to those of you who came, and supported this event with your hard earned money. 
Bless you, bless you.
What a wonderful and very heart warming day.
 It was a beautiful thing to witness.

    Oh gosh this is just precious! What a wonderful, wonderful BAKE SALE for such a precious cause….absolutely precious! I love that the rain stopped just in time for all the goodies to remain dry – along with the fact that people continued to pour out their generiousity even when the Bake Sale was moved into the garage. The true meaning of a community coming together to help someone in need. 🙂

    It's just amazing how your community pulled together to support Lizzie and her family. That's what I call “Greatness”. All those goodies look so good. Happy Thanksgiving Jamie!

      As a Trulia newbie, I am binennigg to wonder if Trulia really does have a customer service department? I am also a paying customer, having bought enhanced featured homes, yet nobody has responded to any of my emails in spite of the one business day response commitment. If I am paying for a service I should not have to depend on the agent community to answer my questions as some of them are as lost as I am.There is no phone number available anywhere to speak to a live person and that makes it even more difficult.I would appreciate it if someone could contact me at this email address to tell me how to contact your support people so I can get my questions answered and my technical problems solved.

    My family is dying for that pumpkin cupcake recipe! Was that your creation or Cindi's? How can I get a copy of it and the chocolate cake recipe? What a great turnout, you guys are a big part of what makes our neighborhood great.

    My charity bake sale might get rained out this Saturday, what do you recommend I do if it does start raining? I don’t have a garage.
