Today is blog action day, dogs included



I was reading through the 88 Ways to DO Something About Poverty Right Now and I've chosen number 52, which is to visit the Hunger Site every day for the next month and click on it.

We are also going to have one meat-free evening meal in each of the next four weeks and donate the price of a meat meal to Oxfam (one of my favorite charities because it helps people to help themselves and because it often works with women). Seeing Penny's going to be in it also, we'll have to put our thinking caps on - perhaps we can come up with a meal for her involving eggs.

Nice Blog Action Day post - that's awesome.

I just wanted to let you know that World Vision Australia have set up a pretty cool competition at http://poprl.com/2ZX that you might like to enter with your existing entry.

Cheers, Ross

Wow good on you all. We often get fruit salad and yoghurt so maybe you could give that to Penny as her meat free meal. Noah doesn't eat fruit so he just gets yoghurt. They also like tinned tomatoes, raw egg and sweet potato. That goes down very well.

Happy, there are so many good causes. I wish I was a multi-multi-millionaire and I could help lots of causes!
