Vegan Bake Sale Fundraiser for BTR-GSR

Hello people in Korea!
My friend Raphaelle is organizing a vegan bake sale fundraiser to benefit the Born to Run Global Sighthound Rescue Organization. They are working hard to rescue these beautiful dogs (borzois, greyhounds, deerhounds, etc) from Korean shelters and find them forever-homes, usually overseas because it's harder to find homes for these larger breeds here. These dogs are simply stunning and it is so sad to see photos of them rejected and broken. Please browse through their website and read about their story and how the organization was founded.

If you would like to donate some vegan goodies, please contact the event planner through the FB page. I plan on contributing a few goodies too! Anyway, I will let you read the details below, copied from the FB event page. Hope you can make it~~

When: Sunday, Jan. 29th from 11 AM to 2:30 PM

Where: Camarata Music Studio in Haebangcheon. It is across from Jacoby's burgers, just next to the Family Mart. Subway station Noksapyeong, exit 2, or blue bus 143, 401 or 406. See detailed directions at the bottom of the post.

What you can do:
- donate some home made vegan baked goods. Gluten free option would be appreciated too! So far we expect to have cookies, muffins, cupcakes, bars cinnamon rolls, banana bread...

- come and enjoy some vegan baked goods! We will also have some light lunch options for sale, such as soup or curry. Just show up on Sun. 29th before 2:30 pm.

- advertise the event to your friends who might be interested: dog lovers, vegans, people with eggs or dairy allergies, people who enjoy cake...

Where the money goes: Born to Run Global Sighthound Rescue is a grassroots dog rescue network specializing in borzois, greyhounds, deerhounds and similar breeds all over Korea. These large dogs are particularly difficult to re-home here.

Born to Run typically needs funds for vet care, crates, collars and leashes, and quarantine/immigration requirements when the dogs are adopted outside of Korea. All the board members are volunteers, the money directly helps the dogs.

Here are their website and facebook page. Have a look at the pretty dog pictures!

If you can bake for us, please message [Raphaelle] now with a list of what you plan on contributing. Thank you!

Subway: Take the #6 (brown) line to Noksapyeong. Take exit 2 and walk along the concrete wall of the army base. At the intersection keep following the wall until you get to Kimchi jars. Walk up this road on the left side past Phillies restaurant until you come to a Family Mart. Just before the Family mart is a big wooden door opening to a basement. Delicious cake and friendly folks should be found at the bottom.

Bus: Take blue bus 143, 401 or 406. Exit the bus at “Yongsan Hanshin Apartments”, the stop between "Haebangcheon" and "Namsan tunnel 3". Walk on the left side of the road when looking at Namsan. The walking path will get separated from the main road by a sound wall. The path will make a left turn, putting you on the main Haebangcheon street next to Indigo’s restaurant. Go right, up Haebangcheon street, until you see a Family Mart on the left side of the road. Just before the Family mart is a big wooden door opening to a basement. Delicious cake and friendly folks should be found at the bottom.
