Thank You ~ No Kid Hungry Update

I'm taking a break from sweets today to properly thank all of my family and friends who participated in my own little "bake sale" to support Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry.  

To each person who placed an order between January 3rd and last Thursday, 11% of the total from each of your orders were donated, THANK YOU!

To each of you who participated in my weekly (unfortunately, I got a little busy the last couple weeks) donation-for-sweets-exchange, THANK YOU!  

The total amount raised: $317.25! 

(Below is the donation confirmation - you'll see that I donated $287.25 because $30 was donated directly to the site by sweets by sillianah fans.)

The video below by Billy Shore, the founder of Share Our Strength was included with the Thank You donation confirmation: 


It means a lot to me that you all played a part in helping to fulfill my New Year's wish.  Even though it may seem like a small gesture, the donation will go a long way in helping children in this country receive the proper food and nutrition they need.  I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart.  May God bless each one of you for your generosity.  

This will not be the last you hear about Share Our Strength, because I'm planning to participate in the National Food Blogger Bake Sale on May 14th where food bloggers (and anyone who loves to bake) will gather in each of their states to host a bake sale to raise funds for Share Our Strength-No Kid Hungry.  Last year, they raised over $16,000 from all of the sales across the country! I don't have the details yet on the NYC event, but if anyone would like to participate in some way, please let me know and I'll keep you posted.  

Lastly, if you haven't already and would like to take the pledge (this is free to do) to help end childhood hunger please do so here:
