Anyone who follows my blog regularly knows that I’m an everything-in-moderation kinda girl, but if you’re going to bake and eat biscuits you may as well do it for a good cause, right?!
Monday 4 July (today!) is The Blind Foundation’s Red Puppy Bikkie Day and keen bakers are encouraged to ‘bake a difference’ for guide dogs by selling puppy-shaped bikkies to friends, work colleagues or classmates. The fun event aims to raise vital funds for the breeding and training of Blind Foundation guide dogs
‘Raising guide dogs requires a staggering amount of time, effort and money,’ says Blind Foundation chief executive Sandra Budd. ‘We appreciate the tremendous fundraising support and efforts of schools, clubs, day cares and workplaces around the country so New Zealanders who are blind or have low vision can enjoy the freedom and independence a guide dog offers.’
Everyone who registers for the event gets a free puppy-shaped cookie cutter (may be a bit late to receive the cutter in time now as today’s the big day, but I’m sure you can still register and make some different-shaped biscuits which would be just as appreciated!). If you raise more than $100, you will also go into the draw to name a gorgeous guide dog puppy!
