Share the Love

Here it is almost February already. The month where we begin to shed our winter coats and feel the sense of renewal that comes with Spring !!!
It is also the season of love where St. Valentine spreads his message across the world with chocolate and just a sense of well being. All is well with the world in the month of February where all of life has promise. For some this is not the case.

As you have already heard Val of More Than Burnt Toast and Giz of Equal Opportunity Kitchen and BloggerAid-Changing the Face of Famineare publishing a cookbook !!!

Who will be published in this cookbook to help raise awareness to feed the hungry?


We hope that our excitement is contagious and that you will submit your favourite recipe to help make a difference for even one person in this world. We have had quite a few submissions already from some wonderful bloggers and non -foodie bloggers alike. They all know that 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the cookbook on Amazon will be directed to a specific program of the World Food Programme (WFP), the United Nations front line agency. The needs are great and we have their full approval!!!!! We have been looking into a specific program to concentrate our efforts...stay tuned to BloggerAid for more news as it comes in. The proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will be handled through a third party fundraising team such as First Giving so that we will always be able to tell you exactly how much has been raised.

We'd love to have you share the "FOODIE LOVE" with one of your best original recipes.

You don't need to be a member of BloggerAid to submit a recipe. You just need a willingness to share your love of food around the world and want to be involved in raising awareness for the millions who cannot help themselves. There is no cost to you. No monthly fees. Just a sense of satisfaction that comes from participating in this exciting project and seeing your name and recipe in print.

Don't post your recipe...the cookbook will be the round-up where your recipe will be published. Once the cookbook has been published you can post or publish your recipe wherever you like...it will always be yours and you will always receive full credit.

What if my photo skills are not up to cookbook standards? I have seen all that you have to offer when I visit your blogs every day, but, if you like one of our team will recreate your recipe and photograph it for you. Submit a photo anyway because we are our own worse critics aren't we? Don't let that stop you!!!

Email your recipe in a plain text Word document along with a photo of your dish to bloggeraid(AT)gmail(DOT)com by February 12th the deadline for receiving recipes. Let's get the word out!!!!!

We need your help to make this fundraising and professional cookbook a success here and around the world. You can contribute in many ways, by submitting a recipe, volunteering your time to test , edit or proofread recipes or simply by purchasing the cookbook in November. Perhaps most important of all is to help to spread the word throughout the blogosphere about alleviating world hunger. Eventually we will be translating the cookbook into many languages to appeal to "foodies" across the globe. We have big, BIGGER and BIGGEST plans which will all be revealed once everything is finalized. You're all invited to take part!!!!!!
