This past Friday, NPR organized a bake sale in honor of Black History Month. I have only one word, YUM! I asked bake sale organizer and NPR On-Air Fundraising producer, Amy Blaszyk, to write up a small post about the purpose of the bake sale.

The goal of the Black History Month Bake Sale was to raise money to help our local DC library build their collection of African-American related or written literature. It's an important component of a library's collection, and we hope this donation will allow them to continue to add these types of books and thus better serve the community. And a bake sale seems so appropriate since READING IS DELICIOUS!

We should make it clear that no books were eaten during the bakesale, only cupcakes (and cookies, and cake, and lemon bars, and brownies and.....)
