Today is Black and White Wednesday, organized by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook. I am thinking about those who cannot see these photos, colour or B&W alike, if I was a bit more gadget-wise I could have added an audio for it, but instead I will just leave you with a message I received from fellow Auckland blogger Moira.
I'm writing to invite you to get involved with a charity initiative involving my day-job at the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind (RNZFB): Bake a Difference for Blind Week.
One of the RNZFB's two annual appeals, Blind Week, runs from Tuesday 25 October until Monday 31 October this year. Funds raised will enable the RNZFB to continue providing essential blindness services to its members. Only one-third of the RNZFB's operating budget comes from government sources, so public support is vital.
Bake a Difference is a new part of Blind Week this year. The RNZFB is asking New Zealanders to organise their own fundraisers for Blind Week. The aim is to get as many people as possible to Bake a Difference by baking delicious goodies and offering these to others for a donation. Participants could bake for friends and family, a community group, club, or coffee group, or their workplace, church or school.
As a food blogger, there are two ways you might like to get involved:
1. Spread the word: tell your readers about Bake a Difference to encourage them to bake and get involved - perhaps sharing some suggested recipes! I've attached some key messages and a couple of photos that the Communications team at work sent me that you're welcome to use - let me know if you have any questions or need more details.
2. Bake your own difference: organise your own event to bake treats and exchange them for donations to the RNZFB. And write about it!
