Bake Vegan for Haiti Relief

Written by PETA | January 25, 2010

As you know, the situation in Haiti is dire, and aid is still desperately needed for all victims of the earthquake. Last week, PETA joined the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti (ARCH) to assist animals in the area—this week, PETA staff members are baking their buns off for this weekend’s national vegan fundraiser, and all proceeds will go toward helping the victims of this disaster. Our vegan desserts and treats are sure to be delicious and—since we’ll be following baking tips from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine—healthy.

    We share your concern about Man vs. Wild, and you are right to be upset by the callous use of animals in this show. There is no excuse for mistreating or depicting the mistreatment of animals for the sake of entertainment and ratings, and we hope that you will take a moment to voice your objections to Discovery, if you haven’t already. It is vital that network executives hear from motivated individual viewers like you in addition to hearing from animal rights organizations like PETA. It sends a clear message that the public does not support the unkind treatment of animals. You can contact Discovery using the following information: Discovery Communications Incorporated 1 Discovery Pl. Silver Spring, MD 20910 240-662-2000 letters@discovery.com

    —”I don’t know if anyone else has seen the show ‘Man vs. Wild’ but I have and I find it very upsetting! He fakes getting lost with the help of his camera crew and wild life professionals to show you how to survive if you do get lost. This includes how to catch kill and eat innocent animals for no reason since he really isn’t starving! A lot of the time he just takes a bite or two out of them and goes on. Sometimes he doesn’t even kill them first! Is there anything we can do besides boycott the show which I am now doing? let me know!”— Those innocent animals do the very same thing Bear does in those situations sometimes. He kills to survive. Really, go put your self in that situation and still be a vegan. I find it hard to be absolutely close to nature and not kill to live. Be a vegan and DIE. Be a part of this earth, kill other animals, and LIVE. Hows that for natural selection?

  • kris says:

    So how much did you make at your bakesale peta?

  • Joanna says:

    I am sure PETA gave some money…but how much will they generate and how much goes to Haiti animals. PETA needs to be accountable just like all charities.

  • Tanya says:

    there’s a book full of recipes for vegan cupcakes! and vegan chocolate is pretty good u can find it in a natural section at a grocery store. and Jasmine have you ever heard of a bake sale or were u seriously just born yesterday? that’s the purpose of them to raise money for a cause.

  • Andre Inglis says:

    I want that cone!!! b We 3 you PETA!!

  • GW says:

    Also Jasmine the money raised from the bake sale is going to humams.

  • GW says:

    “Jasmine.” Are You stupid or something? PETA joined the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti ARCH. Membership requires a donation which PETA obviously made.

  • Joanna says:

    How does eating cup cakes help real animals in Haiti? Seems like PETA is just trying to collect money from people who feel sorry and helpless. What animals are you really helping?

    To MH It’s true what you said about not always being healthy but eating VEGAN is ALWAYS cruelty free! And it’s o.k. to be a little naughty eating a sweet treat once in awhile!

  • vegancoin says:

    MH “Just because something is vegan does not mean it is healthy. Frosting and sprinkles are still chock full of sugar.” ditto on that. i highly recommend Sugar Blues by William Dufty to anyone that is seriously concerned about their health. empty calorie junk food high in artificial andor refined sweeteners is very bad for you. refined sugar is often called a poison and it’s dangerous effects on human health is well documented.

  • Jocelyn says:

    yes but did you know the sugar is essential to human life? if we did not take in sugar we would die! its all about moderation

  • HGS says:

    obviously. that’s not an unknown fact. the cause is good and people will buy because of the cause andor sweets. they decide if they eat it or share or whatever.

  • Carey Bear says:

    Salon 500 in Long Beach CA did a vegan bakesale for Haiti Relief last week and raised over $100! We were so happy with the results and our clients loved the tasty treats that we’re doing it again this week! Great way to show love and support to those in need and expose people to veganism to boot!
