What a wonderful way to help others. My family and I live in the bay area and have had very heavy hearts the past few days. Thank you for doing something that we all do everyday like cooking/baking to making a difference.

Wonderfully written Ali. I have to say, Food52 helped inspire me to test out that recipe. I'm continually amazed by the positive effects food can bestow on communities by providing a way to focus on and share what can be considered absolute goodness. I put my heart into everything I bake, but I can say this time that my baking is putting back into my heart the outpouring of love and support this cause has gathered, and I'm so grateful.

Best of luck to you. I hope that our shared communities--Oakland and Food52--continue to give you that sense of absolute goodness.

I think its really nice that you have offered an option for people to donate to help on a platform that normally probably would not have much to say in regards to tragic events like this. Living in New York, I have been to many spaces outfitted in a similar fashion and its hard not to feel like it could happen anywhere, anytime. My condolences to everyone affected by the tragic fire. Life is fragile.
