Support For Sandy Food Blogging Event - November 8th, 2012

My blogging buddy, Aly, from Cooking In Stilettos just posted information about a wonderful blogging event in support of those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Thank you, Aly.

Creative Culinary’s Barb and Jenn from Jenn Cuisine came up with the great idea of encouraging food bloggers to post a recipe for a comfort food dish on Thursday, November 8th. Jenn put it this way:
These are the organizations that Jenn and Barb are suggesting for donations:
Red Cross is providing food, shelter, and other forms of support to hurricane victims.  You can donate directly to the Red Cross, you can also text the word “Redcross” to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
Salvation Army is also focused on providing food, shelter, and support to victims, and takes donations to storm relief.
Feeding America is providing food, water and supplies to those who need it as part of their disaster relief program.
What a great way to remember our friends across many states affected by Hurricane Sandy and to keep the idea alive of neighbors helping neighbors. Of course, bringing an actual comfort food dish to people who were in harm's way is always a good idea.

So blogging friends, on November 8th, post a recipe for a comfort food dish; include links for donating to organizations for hurricane relief; and follow along and give the Support for Sandy event a shoutout on Twitter using hashtag #FBS4Sandy (Food Bloggers Support For Sandy).

If you want to grab the code for their nifty badge which links to the American Red Cross, go to either Barb's or Jenn's posts on the subject:
