This May, I'm selling Caramel Slice, brownies and neopolitian swirl cookies , in batches of 12 for $for however much you wish to donate donations to ReachOut.
Raising some dough...
It's that time of the year where I bake like crazy for one of my favourite organisations ever (I might be a little bit biased though!), ReachOut Australia.
1 in 4 young people will suffer with a mental health issue and out of that very few will get the help they need. As many of you know I am one of the 1 in 4, I was diagnosed with anxiety at the age of 12 and I was so fortunate to get the help I needed. But I know that many aren't that lucky because of this suicide is the leading cause of death in young people. The reality is that many people are ashamed that they need help for something that is all in their head and there is still so much stigma surrounding it. ReachOut is Australia's only 100% online youth mental health service and is trying to reduce the stigma surrounding youth mental health and help those who are struggling get the help they need.
I became a Youth Ambassador for ReachOut in May 2015 as I wanted to push myself and prove to my anxiety who was boss and I haven't looked back. ReachOut has given me so many opportunities from running stalls at schools to giving presentations at events and media releases. Because of ReachOut I am also studying Community Services at TAFE and I finish my diploma in June this year.
I am baking not only to help ReachOut reach their goal of reaching an extra million young people by 2020 but also in appreciation for all they've done for me and those in need.
This year I am baking the following:
Neopolitan Swirl Cookies
*If there is something that you know I bake and it's not listed feel free to contact me to work something out.
How it will work:
For the month of May I will be taking orders for the above, once you have placed your order and donation contact me either via Facebook, text or email: email@example.com to arrange collection of your order.
Donate however much you think my baking is worth and know that all donations are going to such an amazing organisation.
Orders close on the 20th of May and I will be baking between the 24th and 26th of May with orders able to be collected that week.
Please help in raising some dough for ReachOut!
I have been fortunate enough to be involved with media releases for Raise Dough please check out the following articles:
*unfortunately I am unable to send orders interstate, all orders placed must be able to be collected in person from the Perth metro area. If you are interstate feel free to donate and in exchange I will send you a copy of my brownie recipe, or why not host your own Raise Dough?
