It’s devastating and heartbreaking to watch the news and videos about the tragic earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I can’t quite comprehend what the Japanese are going through now. How frighten and helpless to watch their houses, their towns, and their families being swept away by the waves and nothing much they can do about it. It reminds me how fortunate I am to sit comfortably at home, sharing a hot meal with my family and loved ones.
Instead of sitting here, thinking of another recipe and cook up a storm, I want to ask something of you, my readers and friends. My fellow blogger Sabrina from The Tomato Tart is organizing a virtual bake sale to help the victims over in Japan.
All proceeds will go to Second Harvest Japan. There will be an auction for items over at her website on March 30, 2011, and the winner will have their baked goods shipped directly to them from the producers. Won’t you help her out by participating in the bake sale?
You don’t have to be food blogger or baker to participate. You can either bid on an item or donate a baked good. Just contact Sabrina over at The Tomato Tart and tell her that you want to help out. She’ll send you the details. Or simply by spreading the words about this bake sale, I truly appreciate your help.
To participate, please contact Sabrina at the address below.
I’ll be baking the famous Triple Chocolate Almond Cookies for the bake sale. If you’re interested in the recipe, please click here.
It’ll be a long journey for the Japanese to recover. My prayers are with the victims and those who are affected by this natural disaster in any way. Yes, they might have lost their personal belongings and properties, but let’s not lose hope. Please lend a helping hand and show that we care. I hope you’ll join me in the bake sale. Thank you for stopping my today and have a wonderful rest of the week.
