Exciting news. Richa, the talented baker and cook at Hobby And More is putting together an amazing fundraiser for VSPCA – Visakha Society for Protection and Care of Animals and AstigVegan has been invited to be part of it!
Starting now until May 22, a list of prizes will be up for a raffle: cookbooks, gift cards, coupons, home and kitchen items, even dinner with Richa herself (awesome!). I have been MIA from blogging lately as I have been diligently working on the prizes I’m planning to donate.
Here’s what I came up with:
- Our very first AstigVegan cookbook(let)! A compilation of the most popular recipes on this blog complete with beautiful photos, illustrations, and recipes!
- Then we’re also including the very first Pili Nut cheese! I bet you haven’t heard of them but Philippine grown Pili nuts have the highest (good) fat content among all nuts, which would make it the best candidate for a milk cheese alternative.
- Last but not the least, I’m also throwing in an AstigVegan tote bag to the gift set. The cute tote bag would be perfect for doing your groceries!
All three items come in one gift set and up for only a $10 raffle ticket! All donations go to a good cause so everybody wins!
I’ll be posting more details and photos about the cookbooklet, Pili Nut cheese, and tote bag. In the mean time, here’s more information from Richa:
- to improve the conditions for animals in India and increase awareness.
- to stop the illegal trade in internationally-protected sea turtles and other wildlife,
- rescue cows and water buffalo from illegal slaughter,
- provide permanent happy sanctuary to hundreds of dogs, cats, birds, monkeys, horses, rabbits, tortoises, other animals who had been suffering severe abuse or neglect,
- provide Vegan Meals to the poor, especially seniors and children.
