Bake Sale for Beka - Benefitting the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America -


Bidding is now closed!! Thank you everyone for your overwhelming responses! Play the video below to see how much we all raised!!

oday’s the day friends! Get your bidding fingers ready all in the name of Crohn’s and Colitis. The next two days here on Country Cleaver, we will be having a bake sale benefitting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.

You’ve had the chance to get to know Beka, my best friend, other-other soul mate, and sufferer of Crohn’s. Her resilience and tenacity while facing this disease is admirable. It’s more than that, even.

Because of all of the qualities that Beka possess, 30+ generous bloggers and myself are all putting up baked goods and loot for auction to help Beka raise the money she needs to run her first half marathon – and raise money for Crohn’s research and to help send kids suffering with Crohn’s and colitis to camp at Camp Oasis.

A cure can be found and we can ensure kids don’t miss out on the most fundamental experiences of being kids. Look below for all the treats, goodies and unbelievable swag.
