For the past few weeks I've been planning, baking, and buying ingredients. I'm getting ready to do a pop up cookie cafe at Oslo Vegetarfestival and let me tell you, I am SO happy to be back in the kitchen doing what I love.
I started my baking project: Sally's Cookies last year as a fun way to do something which helps people. The point of the project is to donate the profits away to organisations which make the world a better place. Every time I sell a cookie, someone gets to eat something delicious, and they also get a good feeling from knowing that they have donated to an important cause. I see it as a non confrontational form of activism. it's a good way to inspire people and spread awareness.
As I'm getting ready to do it all again, I thought it might be cool to look back at my first event in July last year in which I raised money for an LGBTQ rights organisation; Skeiv Ungdom.
