Baking our blues away (BOBA) is a volunteer organisation that coordinates a day a year, July 15th, to encourage people to take time out and bake for someone doing it tough. It may be a friend, a family member, a work colleague or even a stranger on the street. Why do we ask you to bake?
Primarily, to highlight Depression and anxiety, however certainly not exclusively to support those illnesses. At Baking our blues away we acknowledge that everyone experiences a bad day/week/year from time to time and it is important to support people doing it tough, regardless of the reason.
Perhaps it is a new mum, or someone who has lost a loved one or been diagnosed with an illness. All of these people need to know they are valued and loved. For us at BOBA, we believe home baked goodness speaks volumes. Not only are you helping others, you get to feel good about yourself too.
