Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale

I'm getting the word out for Share Our Strength today in the hopes that my small space on the web would help to feed even one child. I've had the privilege to test recipes here at home for a Share Our Strength cookbook and hope to be able to host my own bake sale some time in the near future.

Today, more than 12 million children in the United States do not know when their next meal will come. Unfortunately, this number continues to rise as these difficult economic times are leaving more and more people jobless, without homes, and unable to provide food for their families.

What can you do?

1. Sign-up to host a bake sale:

2. Buy the virtual Great American Bake Sale eBook:

3. Post a ChipIn widget or banner on your blog:

Make a difference in a child’s life by signing up and purchasing a virtual cookbook today! 100% of the proceeds from this eBook will benefit Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale, which is a national effort that encourages Americans to host bake sales in their communities to help end childhood hunger. Funds raised support summer and after-school feeding programs in your community that thousands of kids depend on.

Once you have purchased your virtual Great American Bake Sale cookbook, double your impact and use the recipes to host your own Great American Bake Sale! Hosting a Bake Sale is a fun and easy way to make a big impact!

Hi Anne!
Been catching up on my reading. Loved the goat cheese talk too, even my eldest, who has been getting her grandmother to buy her goat cheese of recent and has a desire to learn more(particularly cheese). Wouldnt mind a munch on some of that garlic peppered one now tho.

This too looked very interesting. I went to look, but the link isnt direct, which I wanted to let you know; do you think an Aussie in Japan could do it too?

Thinking of yous
love and hugs
Jodie and Clan
