#GivingTuesday and Bakes for Breast Cancer

Today you will see social media a buzz with a hash tag and the words Giving Tuesday written like this #GivingTuesday; if you are wondering what this it is a day of global giving to charities around the world. The day falls after Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and the oh so awaited for Cyber Monday. It is meant to remind us all that we are a world of givers and doers.
Now it is the day to remember the charities that need your help; charities that are both big and small will be vying for your attention and generosity.

The inspirational people we meet!

The emails we get and stories we hear from those we don’t know are always very special to us. We had the opportunity to hear from a lovely young woman who wanted to bake goods for those who contacted her, deliver them to their offices so they could have a little bake sale. The funds she received would go to Bakes for Breast Cancer.
We had the chance to meet this lovely young woman and what an inspiration she was to us! We talked about ways she can get involved with our organization. In the near future you will hear more …

 

Tis the Season for Giving and Getting Involved!

We honestly don’t know where the time goes. Yesterday it seems summer just started and now the trees are bare.  Breast Cancer Awareness Month came and went already!  When you are young and in school the school year seems to last forever.  As you get older, time goes quickly.
We did not write much about Breast Cancer Awareness Month because we feel Bakes for Breast Cancer is pink 24/7 365!  All year long we are pink and work hard to raise money for breast cancer!  There is not a day that goes by where we don’t work on our events- Boston …

 

Oh My What a Week it Was!

Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer 2013 is now history!  The work has been done, the desserts have been enjoyed! Soon we will be letting you know about Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer 2014!
Let’s savor the results and efforts of Boston Bakes 2013 for a little while longer!
What a week it was!  Boston Bakes 2013 was dedicated to a very special and kind woman who lost her battle to breast cancer, Anna Guarino at the age of 60.  She gave so much to her family and community and is missed by all who knew her.  She lives in the heart of …

Who can have their fill of desserts when it goes to such a good cause as breast cancer?  Not us!
Each year we are lucky to have more participants join our event and help us raise money for breast cancer!
We are even luckier that the patrons of our establishments show their support by ordering the Boston Bakes Desserts! We are lucky that many view our event like restaurant week and go to as many restaurants with their friends as possible! They go out to eat, bring desserts home, and give gifts when they shop on line!  Some might even freeze a …

 

Marathon Monday!

Boston comes alive the weekend prior to the start of the Boston Marathon! The energy of the city is felt everywhere.  The long planning of the marathon is done.  The runners have trained long and hard.  They hope the weather will be perfect, not to hot and not to cold.  They hope Heartbreak Hill won’t get the best of them and that they cross the finish line with everyone cheering them.  Along the way on the sides of the road, many people will be waiting to cheer on the runners mile by mile.  It is what we do each Patriot’s …

 

Season’s Greetings 2012

I must say this every year but the fall flies so quickly by! Last I remember it was summer which led to Halloween, to Thanksgiving and now to Christmas and a New Year to shortly begin.
Last summer I planned a trip to see friends in Italy in November, friends I had not seen in countless years; it too has come and gone too quickly.  I am left with beautiful memories and dreams of returning sooner than later!
It has been an incredible year for Bakes for Breast Cancer, Boston Bake for Breast Cancer and our Bakes for Breast Cancer Bake Sale.  …

 

Good bye to Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2012! Hello Halloween!

October flew by! Breast Cancer Awareness Month ends today!  Pink will no longer be the” it” color! The number of breast cancer events dwindle down but our organization Bakes for Breast Cancer, Inc.  works daily as do many other organizations to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer all year long!
Breast Cancer is brought to the forefront in October but we should not forget about it because all year long women and men of all ages are diagnosed with breast cancer.
You don’t have to wait until next October to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer …
