Zanmi Beni Bakesale

This Sunday, a bunch of my friends had a bake sale to benefit Zanmi Beni, an children's home in Haiti where many children displaced and abandoned from the 2010 Earthquake live.  Two amazing Moms working with Partners in Health have been flying back and forth to Haiti, bringing friends and supporters to help build this special place and stay involved with the children there.  Their hands-on approach is working and many of their friends and their daughters have become heavily involved raising money for these children, many of whom were living in the pediatric ward of Port-au-Prince's General Hospital, which was badly damaged in the Earthquake.

The bake sale was a huge success, so many families stopped by and stocked up on goodies.

One thing looked better than the next...

Cupcakes, cookies, pound cakes, cake pops..all hand made and delicious.

Zanmi Beni means "blessed friends" in Haitian Creole.  The children living there are blessed to have these amazing women involved in their lives.  To read more about this organization, click here.
So proud of my friends and their hard work!
