The SF Vegan Bakesale was this past weekend. We made over $3,000 for Wildcare and Gorilla CD. I am throughly exhausted from live and living and MOVING (anyone know of a place in SF that will take two awesome vegans, a pit bull (she’s a service dog) and provide w/d, parking, and preferably a dishwasher/dishwashing boy who wears only loin cloth and looks like jude law but better? HOLLER!) but anyway, read fabulous re-caps at Eats Well With Others, Vegan Junk Food, & I Love It SF. Plus, the photos my god the PHOTOS.
UPDATE: THE BAKESALE IS NOT AT IKE’S PLACE! THE NEW LOCATION WILL BE at Herbivore Restaurant at 938 Valencia Street @ 21st Street in the mission! Everything else is exactly the same!!!
Ow! The SF Vegan Bakesale is NEXT SATURDAY, May 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in front of
Ike’s Place Herbivore Restaurant on Valencia! We need bakers! And eaters! So email me if you want to bake and just show up if you want to eat and oh also: tell everyone you know about it, okay!? PLEASE! We gotta make some money for Virunga National Park and WildCare! They are both the best charities on Earth—saving wild animals in the Bay Area, AND mountain gorillas!—and they NEED US!!
p.s. We need people to put these adorable posters by Megan of Say It’s Not Soy all over town and on your website and EVERYWHERE so please, please, please, can you help!? If so, email me and I’ll hook you up with some 4-ups and black-and-white versions because we classy. Oh and say you’re going on Facebook so we look popular and shit. Or not “and shit.” Just “popular.” SO TIRED.
I’ll tell what I’m thankful for: ADORABLE BABY GORILLAS STILL BEING NOT EXTINCT AND ALL PLAYING TOGETHER AND BEING SO SUPER HELLA CUTE.
Ugh, humans are so wrong for so long. Not to mention that these are orphaned babies who should be with their group but aren’t because the adults were probably killed in crossfire or for bushmeat (speaking of that, donate to help keep rangers there to protect them!). I don’t know, I feel like on the evolutionary path, there was a point when gorillas and humans parted ways and gorillas chose to good, right path and humans (and chimpanzees, I’m not leaving you out of this! What with your going crazy and eating each other sometimes thing) chose the fucked, evil path. I mean gorillas are natural peace-loving vegans. They are the awesome hippies of the animal world and to think they might be extinct one day soon because of how fucking terrible humans are. UGH I CANNOT ABIDE GIVING THESE RANGERS ALL MY MONEY AND THEN GOING DIANE FOSSEY ON ALL YOUR ASSES. Happy Thanksgiving!!
Thanks to Livia for the heads-up!
This is the latest video of Ndeze and Ndakasi, two mountain gorilla orphans in Goma. They are so hella cute, it’s plain silly. Learn more about them and prepare to empty your wallet on the site. I mean seriously, you might as well just cash my paycheck and throw the money on these two adorable girls because I CAN’T TAKE IT. Give them money, because this is what protects them from poachers, it’s really important. It doesn’t take tons of money to do this and it protects one of the most magical beings on the planet and there are only about 600 of them left. If there aren’t any baby mountain gorillas, I don’t know what there is left to live for. Really, think about it and then tell me I’m wrong.
