I'm not one for advertising anything on this little blog of mine as this is my own personal space for me to rant and rave about anything to no-one in particular. I also get inundated with emails asking if I'd be interested in promoting various charity events and as much as I believe in all their causes and would love to help everyone, I just don't feel this is the place for it. However, there are those occasions when all that gets thrown out the window. This is one of those times.

Each year, Foodbank Victoria provides over 3.8 million kilograms of food to Victorians facing
natural disasters and disadvantage.

The reason this particular event has hit home with me is that I have in the past volunteered for Fairshare myself. Such a simple concept that can help so many people, including the animals at the Collingwood Children's farm who get to munch on all of the veggie scraps. Gotta love it!
