The #veryasian fundraiser, let's #stopasianhate!



"I am utterly sickened and heart sick about this. We are being hunted." - Lisa Ling 

With the recent brutal murders of Christina Yuna Lee and Michelle Go, there is a dire need to help #stopasianhate and to amplify Asian voices with this #veryasian fundraiser! Let's come together as a community, and let's empower and lift each other. Our goal is to raise at least $10,000, to be split evenly between The Very Asian Foundation and Heart of Dinner. Please donate directly or host bake sales (virtually or in person) along with the Subtle Asian Baking community to raise funds to help #stopasianhate. 

About Heart of Dinner: "Heart of Dinner exists to combat food insecurity and isolation within NYC’s elderly Asian American community. We do this by delivering care packages of hot lunches and fresh produce every Wednesday, lovingly paired with a handwritten and illustrated letter in their native language to bring warmth and comfort."

About The Very Asian Foundation: "The Very Asian Foundation is committed to amplifying diverse AAPI voices through education, storytelling, and community connection. Stay tuned for future collaborations and campaigns." Learn more here: https://very-asian.com
 
About Subtle Asian Baking: Subtle Asian Baking (SAB) is the leading online community and source for sweet and savory Asian baking, showcasing and sharing the best crowdsourced Asian baking recipes. SAB celebrates and explores Asian culture and history through baking and innovating, and gives back to the AAPI community, contributing to #stopAsianhate efforts.

"Impacts of violence and racism are disproportionately felt by women in targeted groups," states Sung Yeon Choimorrow, executive director of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum. "The brutality endured by Asian Americans long predates the COVID pandemic. Out of the 3,800 anti-Asian hate incidents reported to Stop AAPI Hate between March 2020 and March 2021, 68 percent were by women."-NBC News

"In a society where Asian women experience perpetual erasure, minimization, and invalidation, please remember that whatever you’re feeling is valid and real. Whatever needs you have to feel safe are important and urgent. Please create space to check in with yourself."-Michelle MiJung Kim

Note: You can also donate directly or run bake sales to donate portions of your proceeds! You don't have to be Asian or female to participate. Be an ally.
