Bloggers Bake for Hope was started in 2011 by Cara and Jen. The first year of the online bake-sale was part of Bake for Hope, which is a week long, nation-wide, 100% volunteer-run, bake sale event. Proceeds were donated to local Susan G. Komen for the Cure affiliates. Nearly $3000 were donated to the Komen Massachusetts Affiliate in 2011 due to the generous contributions to Bloggers Bake for Hope.
In 2012, Cara stepped aside and Jen partnered up with another local food blogger, Fiona. Due to recent contraversy with the Komen Foundation, they decided to donate the proceeds from the bake sale to another breast cancer charity. As luck would have it, Jen and Fiona had both signed up to walk the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Boston in 2012. Thus, all donations for Bloggers Bake for Hope 2012 will be donated to the Avon Foundation.
