Today I’m honored to be posting on Frosting for the Cause — a 365-day baking project launched by Paula of Vanilla Bean Baker to raise funds for cancer research to honor the women in our lives who’ve been affected by cancer. I don’t think I know anyone who hasn’t had cancer touch someone in their family, so I liked that Paula’s project is about raising funds for cancer research, not just “awareness.”
My aunt, Donora, passed away a little over a year ago. Please visit my post on Frosting for the Cause to read about the Mango Lassi Cupcakes I created in her honor (and get the recipe).
I made my donation to Breast Cancer Action, which “is committed to reducing our involuntary exposures to toxins in the environment that are linked with breast cancer.” Moreover, BCA does not accept funds “from any organization that profits from or contributes to cancer.” Read more about BCA here — and of course, please consider making a donation to a cancer organization of your choice if you’re so moved. Thank you.
