Thanks to all of you and your generosity, we were able to raise $1447.00 for the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA)! You donated most generously (I think we could have added another table!) to take home some treats from the bake tables, and you also donated whenever you purchased a Sweets from the Earth baked good from our deli, or a karmavore raffle ticket at the cash. All of this added up to help the kitties!
We were overwhelmed with everyone's generosity whether you baked for the sale or donated when you arrived.
We'd like to thank all of those bakers out there who came in numbers for this event. Wow! What an amazing turnout!
A special thanks to Sprout Vegan Bakery for bringing the delicious mini cheesecakes and for donating your time to help out at the bake sale table.
Thank you to Artisan Bake Shoppe for donating the delicious Chocolate Cake, and the Vegan Banana Pecan Cookies (that we've since decided to carry in the store as well!)
We'd also like to thank all of those that provided us with some great raffle prizes:
Bikram's Yoga New Westminster
Live for Tomorrow
and Saeco BC
Thank you to Janna Hurtzig of Astrosatchel for having a trunk sale with us on the upper level during the bake sale. Janna brought a fabulous selection of her totes, wallets, and even silk-screened pillows for people to choose from.
What was your favorite cookie, cupcake, or other treat from the bake sale?

Karmavore is very excited to be participating in the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale! In its third year, the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale is growing bringing a greater awareness about vegan foods and living cruelty-free. Each bake sale raises much needed funds to charities of the bake sale seller's choice. In addition, we will have a raffle with all kinds of prizes up for grabs!
All of the proceeds from Karmavore's bake sale are going to VOKRA (Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association).
The Karmavore bake sale will be held in our shop in New Westminster on Saturday, April 23rd from 11am - 3 pm. Karmavore the Vegan Shop is located at 610 Columbia St. in New Westminster. We are just a block west from Columbia Skytrain station, across the street from Starbucks. Parking is available on the street or behind our store in the parkade.
Wait! There's more!
On that same Saturday, we're hosting a "Meet the Artist" and Trunk Sale featuring Janna Hurtzig, creator of Astrosatchel. Janna will be at the shop as well and is offering 15% off of all Astrosatchel items!

Deep Creek Wine Estate & Hainle Vineyards Estate Winery are located in the sunny Okanagan wine region of British Columbia, Canada. The winery has a strong commitment to natural chemical free viticulture and handcrafted winemaking. Our own vineyards are managed naturally chemical free. All of our growing and cellar practices are traditional according to the Huber family wine purity law of 1856. The Huber family wine purity laws which exceed Canadian and International certified Organic winemaking standards have been followed in every aspect of winegrowing and winemaking since the Huber family bought Hainle Vineyards Estate Winery in 2002. We are dedicated to producing the highest possible quality, naturally dry, fully fermented wines.
Where to Buy
Your best bet is to visit the websites for each above wineries as their supplies will change often.

a) Just decided 2011 would be the year they become vegan.
b) Watched Food Inc. and is now being mindful of what he/she eats.
c) Been Vegan for ages and doesn’t hold out much hope for being impressed on February 14th.
Worried? Don’t be! We’ve got a great guide for you that will knock your loved one’s socks off (or underwear. It depends what your intentions are.)
First of all start a new trend this year and have a Vegan Night In.
Present your loved one with a box of succulent Sjaaks Nuts and Chews Valentine's Box to show your partner that you care.
Before you bring out the main course, wet your appetite with a delicious appetizer.
Field Roast’s Chao Cheese, a tangy, artisan cheese formed by hand and rolled with fine herbs and sweet red peppers, is perfect on bread or crackers. It goes great with Mary’s Gone Crackers crackers! An easy first course which is sure to please.
When it comes to feeding vegans for dinner, Karmavore’s grocery can definitely provide you with something to satisfy. Serve one of our Herbed Cutlets with a side of veggies and salad. Or if you want to really impress, break out the Hazelnut Roast En Croute for that special WOW factor.
You’ve given her/him chocolates, appetizers and a full meal, now the real fun begins (that is if you aren’t too full from your delicious vegan meal and have fallen asleep on the couch).
For a sexy night of lovin’, grab our Galiano Island Soap Works Valentine’s bag.
Full of sensual goodies such as floating soy candles, lavender tub tea, mango body butter, and a massage candle, it’s bound to make your evening a memorable one.
Or you may just want a few candles to add some candlelight, and for that we have many more soy candles from Galiano of different scents and sizes.
Did you know you could order most of these items online? That’s right, you don’t even have to leave the house in order to truly dazzle your Vegan Mate.
Wishing you an amazing and romantic cruelty free Valentines Day!

Funds raised for this group will go mainly towards vet bills and travel expenses.
One story that illustrates the help we can provide by raising money for this rescue group is the story of Gertie. Gertie is 9 year old, 5lb toy poodle who is a local rescue. Her teeth were in such bad shape that her gums bled constantly, and she had great difficulty eating. She desperately needed vet care and dental surgery.
If the BC Poodle and Small Dog Rescue hadn't taken Gertie in and to the vet for dental work, she would have quite probably died from her ailment. Fortunately for Gertie, her two sessions of dental surgery were successful and she did not lose all of her teeth as originally thought. She is now up for adoption at the rescue.
If you are planning on attending the fundraising event at Karmavore and haven't already heard, the event has been changed to Sunday, January 23d.
For more information read our previous post and find the link to purchase tickets there.
We are also accepting in store donations. Just ask one of the staff about how you can donate to the BC Poodle and Small Dog Rescue.
