BloggerAid Cook Book, just in time for Christmas


Back in the spring I mentioned  the formal organization of BloggerAid  by Val of More Than Burnt Toast and Giz of Equal Opportunity Kitchen for the purpose of bringing bloggers together to help alleviate world hunger, one event at a time. The first one was to create a cook book from the collaboration of food bloggers from around he world. And so, after a lot of hard work by a small group of people, The BloggerAid Cool Book has arrived and is ready to make it's way to your home or maybe find it's way under the Christmas tree this year as it would make a fabulous gift.
Actually this labor of love arrived last month, but as I was on the road and really unable to focus enough to write a proper post, I'm taking this opportunity to make sure to put it out there for your consideration now. You'll find my recipe for Fresh Artichoke Lasagne, along with 130 other authors, representing 60 countries, so there should be something to tempt everyone.
100% of BloggerAid-CFF's proceeds from the cookbook will be sent directly to the WFP's School Meals Programme, which benefits an average of 22 million hungry children each year. School meals are important on many levels. In countries where school attendance is low, the promise of at least one nutritious meal each day boosts enrollment and promotes regular attendance.  Children are the key to a better future.

Again, if you haven't already discovered BloggerAid, there is no time like the present. It's free and there's no obligation, just a great opportunity to discover new blogs and friends. There is a link to the site where you can find out all about the project in my side bar. There's also a permanent link on my side bar as well to purchase the cookbook or you can follow this link to purchase your copy of The BloggerAid Cook Book
If you tell 2 friends and they tell 2 friends we can be well on our way to making a difference. Remember it takes only 25 cents to feed a child a school lunch, what a difference that can make.
