We Already Have 1060 Recipes.

Shower of Awards – Thank You!

I have been honoured with a lot of Awards during the past few weeks but a lot of events have got me out of my scheduled program.

First of all I made this unexpected trip to Switzerland, which was a last minute decision and coming back I had lots of e-mails and the google reader had more than three hundred posts, which I am still striving to read but each day more are add to it. I hope that you will forgive me if I have not yet visited you but I hope that tomorrow I will try and read all the posts in my reader.

Soon after my return I had the roundup of the World Food Day Event to prepare and at the same time Val, of More than Burnt Toast, Giz, of Equal Opportunity Kitchen and I were discussing ways to contribute more substantially to the World Food Program, so we were working on BloggerAid, as well.

Although BloggerAid is still in its infant stage, I began writing this post with nine members and by the time I finished the post we had three more and so we are now twelve members and hope that day by day we will be growing.

Please come and join us! It’s free. Some may think that by joining you will have to pay something.

No. You don’t. You may donate but only if you feel like doing this.

Through our efforts we are looking for ambassadors in as many countries as possible to become the representatives of their corner of the world. It’s not necessary to have just one ambassador per country. If you feel you have a contribution to make we really would love to hear from you.

Your contribution as a Member or an Ambassador could be…but not limited to:

1) As simple as raising awareness on your blog for world hunger
2) Hosting an event that connects with this key issue (we have already had several volunteers!!!)
3) Hosting a fundraiser small or large that can generate money for the World Food Programme , the United Nations’ frontline agency
4) Drawing media attention to all of our efforts
5) Provide something that can be auctioned through our forum… a cookbook or any other object of your choice that may be for this purpose with proceeds to be noted as a donation by your country (It is exciting to note we already have some donations as well!!!!)
6) Endorsements by people in the food business… chefs, restaurateurs, publishers of cookbooks, critics, online food based programs or communities.

We can’t stand alone. We need you.

Now to the Awards.

I have never mentioned that I have a page only for the Awards and I hope that you have checked it out. There is so much love in the blogosphere.

  1. Congrats on your awards! You deserve them!

    Thanks for giving me one ;-D!!! I’m honored…

    Cheers and have a great week,


  2. Darling Ivy, that is a lot of emails!!!!!! I would go nuts with so much to read ;D
    Take it easy and one step after the other 😀

    As I told Val, I would love to be an Ambassador but I feel my english is not good enough to deal with all the things that will come from this decision. I feel ok when talking about food and recipes but these are big words, it’s an important theme! I’ll do any other things to help: talk about the events, post recipes to participate… anything else you suggest.

    Wow, you will need more pages in your Awards space… Congratulation Ivy! You deserve them so!

    Thanks for passing me the Great Buddy Award. You are too sweet♥♥. You are a great Buddy too!

  3. Wow no kidding that is indeed a shower of awards? congrats to all the awards you received.

  4. Ivy

    Thanks Rosa. Have a nice week as Well.

    Nuria, I am still shocked seeing you naked. ;P

    About English, I am glad there is someone else who feels just like I do about the language problems but I am sure you will contribute as much as you can. Thanks a lot. That’s what buddies are for.

  5. giz

    Many congrats on all the well deserved awards. If I had to pick the hardest working blogger, you would be it. Do you even sleep?
    Thank you also for such a lovely award. Wait til you see my “Kreativ” interpretation of Greek food. I’m sure you’ll make it across the ocean without a plane 🙂

  6. Ivy, congratulations on your awards, well-deserved as always! Thank you for awarding me with the 360° Foodie Award! Much appreciated and as always, my best to you and your family. 🙂

    Be Well,

  9. Oh thanks Ivy! and congrats..I am all excited 🙂

  10. Congrats on all your fitting awards:). I’m joining in the Bloggeraid Club:)

  11. Christmas has come early with all those award presents. Thanks for including me in such good company. There’s a couple of bloggers here I haven’t visited yet and I’m excited to do so.
    Welcome back from your trip. BTW, the little issue we discussed with the sign-in on Blogger Aid persists. Do you remember?

  12. And thank you Ivy for passing me the Yum Yum Yummy award:)

  13. Thanks for the award ivy, i love your blog too!

  14. Such a kind and caring woman you are. Thank you so much for the award Ivy.

  15. Thank you Ivy! I really appreciate it. I know what you mean–I’ve been so sick again the last week that I have had barely any time to read posts or post my own. I am just starting to feel better but now there’s Thanksgiving to host in a few days and my son’s birthday two days after that so I have a lot of cooking, cleaning and decorating to get to!

  16. Wow – look at all of those awards. Your hard work definitely pays off! Thank you for passing on to award to us!

  17. Thanks Ivy! God! You’re busier than the Academy Awards!!!…LOL All the best.

  18. Congratulations on all your awards! You truly deserve the shower and more! And thank you for sharing a special one with me. Me a superior scribbler?? Thank you very much for the honor. Like Nuria, English is not my first language. But I am trying hard… Thank you very much for the inspiration and encouragements!!!

  19. Ivy

    Giz, thanks a lot. As we grow old we sleep less ;P I’ll be waiting to see what you have created.

    Sam, thanks. Hugs and kisses to Ilias.

    Peter, you’re welcome.

    Teresa, thanks and the same to you.

    Sangeeth, thanks a lot.

    Yasmeen, I saw this morning that you have already joined. Thank you very much.

    Joan. Thanks. I saw that you have also joined. I suppose the problem has been solved. Thanks for joining.

    Bobby. You are always welcome.

    Lisa. What can I say but thank you. The same goes for you.

    Psychgrad. You are welcome.

    Peter. Hilarious!! And the Award.. goes to…..

    Ning. I can understand the language problems. It’s much more difficult than it looks. For someone to write a post it might taken him ten minutes and for not being our native language, for writing the same things, it may take us hours.

  20. Congrats on all the awards! you’re very deserving and put in a lot of work!

  21. Ivy,
