Over the weekend, dozens of bakers set up bake sales at Austin-area restaurants and cafes to raise money for RAICES, the organization assisting families that have been separated at the border.

Austin-area bakers made treats at home and then sold them at several locations through the city on Saturday morning. Contributed by the Big Bake Sale.

Including donations from partners, including, Valentina’s Tex Mex BBQ and Crema Bakery & Cafe, the group raised $12,482.77 that will “go directly to RAICES to help immigrant and refugee families at the border. “

Austin Bakes, which is the Big Bake Sale’s sister organization and started after the Japan tsunami, has raised more than $80,000 for humanitarian relief.
