Bake Sale for Beka – Benefitting the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America

*The Bake Sale is now closed! But check out the Video Reveal of what we raised!! Thank you to EVERYONE for their contributions and their donations to the Bake Sale for Beka*



Today’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, 25 bloggers, numerous generous companies, 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.



All the Details:

How to Bid: Send your bids to me, Megan, via e-mail at with the subject line of your e-mail being the name of the item you are bidding on.

All bids will be updated as soon as I get them. So – make sure you check back OFTEN to see the most current bids – and Bid again and again to make sure you get the loot that you want! It’s all tasty.

Bids: Bids on all items are in $5 increments. IE – All bids must end in a “0” or “5”.  All items from the companies will have minimum bids set and listed next to each item. And bid often! The bidding wars is what makes this FUN!

Hours of Bake Sale: October 28th-29th -> 7am PST – 8pm PST

Shipping Limitations: Unfortunately, all items will be limited to residents of the US. Tragically sorry to the international friends!

How to Pay for your Item: After the auction/bake sale is over, the winning participants will be e-mailed and given the details on where to pay. After payment for the baked goods or items has been received, you will be shipped your baked good or product by the appropriate blogger or company. Easy peasy!
