Bake for Brake!
Why not bake for Brake? Making a load of cupcakes is the simplest thing in the world, but everyone loves them, particularly if they know their extra calorie intake is all in a good cause! So bake for Brake - we want cakes not carnage!
Hold a Road Safe-Tea Day - Charge $2 for every cupcake sold at work, or $1 for every cake sold to school friends. Sell them at your local community event! Sell them to your neighbours! If holding your Day at an organisation or as part of an event, why not tie it in with some road safety activities too - such as running a road safety quiz, or having a road safety toolbox talk with morning tea.
Set yourself a target! Can you sell 500 buns and make $500 for Brake? It's amazing how quickly a tray of 12 buns can disappear into 12 mouths, so get baking for Brake! Make a sign for your bun tray, saying the "Bake for Brake challenge". Why not hand out home-made leaflets for everyone who buys a bun, telling them about Brake and suggesting they "eat their yummy bun fast;but drive slow!" You can also encourage them to sign the Brake Pledge.
Hold a Brake Bake Off! Want to go even further with your baking? Hold a bake off at work or school. Charge a small entry fee, line up some judges to test the baking for looks, taste and texture (you'll have plenty of volunteers!), award prizes and sell the cakes in return for donations to Brake.
Here are some easy road safety themed recipes to follow:
