BloggerAid Changing the Face of Famine Update

Back in January I joined a wonderful fundraising project. You can read all about it here, In a nutshell, it's a fundraising cookbook with recipes from food bloggers around the world. The proceeds will go to The United Nations World Food Program - School Meals. It's too late to contribute a recipe. The book is now in final editing mode...but there are a couple of other ways you can contribute...buy the book when it comes out (I'll definitely let you know when it launches.) and ....

You can join (if you're not already a member) BloggerAid - Changing the Face of Famine and check out our latest, greatest project....View & Review. We are really pumped at the response from cookbook publishers who have offered to provide some of the newest cookbooks for our members to ...you guessed it...view & review.

If you're interested...and who doesn't want a new cookbook to try out...there are just a few things to note....

1. You must be a member of BloggerAid…Changing the Face of Famine to participate. It's seriously easy to do and so rewarding too. If you are already a member and have friends who would like to participate, by all means, invite them to join us.

2. When you join the forum, (and I know you all want to), please let us know if you have preferences or restrictions. For example, if you’re vegan, we will arrange for you to receive only vegan books or products for review.

3. Once you receive a copy of a new cookbook from the publisher. . Within a time frame (to be determined), turn in your review to the forum together with a copy of the picture of the dish you’ve prepared. Post both the review and the picture on your own blog with a link to BACFF.

4. You may choose to either keep the cookbook or donate it to BACFF for auction. You’re under no pressure – foodies love their cookbooks so we’re fine if you decide to keep it.

So what are you waiting for?! Go directly to BACFF, sign in or sign on and join in the View & Review Group. I'll be waiting for you.

I'm constantly being offered books and magazines to review... and then they get my address in France and that's the end of it.... Even the ones that assure me it's not a problem.....
But I keep trying - I'll sign up!
