I'm willing to bet your social media feeds have included at least one gorgeous sourdough loaf, possibly a pan of tempting cinnamon rolls, or myriad other creations by both newly minted "quarantine bakers", and seasoned stress bakers, alike.
BakingForGood.org was born out of the chaos of global pandemic, with focus on the idea of nonprofits helping nonprofits.
Baked goods bring comfort, joy, and in our case,
we also use our flour power to raise necessary awareness and resources for our communities in need. We're going old-school in a new way, by doing (another) virtual bake sale!
Our goal this time, is to raise $10,000 for Black artists in our community, whose income has been adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, racism, or both, through the Black Art Matters initiative, in partnership with BlackArtMattersATX.org and the Austin Creative Alliance. 100% of every dollar raised will be donated to this endeavor.
Thanks for stopping by!
How It Works
The bakes will be sold to the highest bidder, and delivered in a socially-distant, contact-free way, to the winners! There's also the option to support our cause by making a flat donation, if baked treats aren't your thing.
There's power in flour, y'all. We're baking for our community. We're baking to help make a difference. We're baking for good.

"I'm baking because Black art matters and there is a huge need to amplify and showcase the voices, work, and beauty of the black community, the heart and soul of this city."

"If I can help others through doing what I love to do (baking and helping others - haha!), I will do it! I'm hoping my bakes can help bring more awareness and support to our struggling Black artists in Austin. "
"I'm contributing to this bakesale because BLACK LIVES MATTER and BLACK ART MATTERS. I love to bake, and I'm thrilled to put my time & skills to use in support of what is right and good in this World. <3 "
"I'm happy to support Austin Creative Alliance and Austin Justice Coalition, and I support the notion that black artists need to be heard, now more than ever. "
"Because during this time sometimes it's difficult to find the correct words to show my love and support, so what better way than to share some sweet love and break bread! like my Mom always says, "Las penas con pan, son menos" aka "all griefs with bread are less" "
