For some time now, I’ve been looking for a way to use my bread-baking skills to benefit the needy. I finally found it! I’m baking bread for STIR IT 28 – Atlanta. I’m so excited to be a part of this wonderful effort to benefit the people of Haiti. 100% of monies raised goes directly to Share Our Strength and Yéle Haiti.
Participating in virtual bread baking events is great and I’ve made so many wonderful breads and met so many terrific people. I given a lot of the bread away, but mostly just to family and friends. I’m really looking forward to baking for a live offline event.
What is STIR IT 28?
STIR IT 28 is a 3-part fund-raising effort to help in the relief of Haiti's devastating earthquake. Three food bloggers have come together to bring awareness and raise money for Haiti! On Feb. 21st, 4 cities, nation-wide, will host an evening of culinary adventures, featuring extraordinary food from chefs, restaurants and food bloggers in each city!

The entire month February has been designated as one of solidarity and fund-raising. As of Feb. 1 and through Feb. 28th, you can donate in any increment amount. We’d like a minimum of $5.00. Maybe donate what you would normally spend to create a dish for a post or give the amount you’d spend on a lunch or dinner out with friends. It’s not about how much you give, but the spirit in which you decided to help others and be selfless. We understand that economic times are hard, but even $1 from each of 500 or more bloggers WILL make a difference.
Spread the Word:
Spread the word to your friends, tell your families. The idea is to bring the food community together as a whole, so anyone who lives and loves food should get the message!
Let’s Stir It Up for Haiti!
