I have said this before, Christmas is my favourite time of year! For me Christmas is a time to enjoy the company of family and friends, a time for me to let those I love know how much they mean to me, and a time for me take stock of how fortunate I am. Inevitably Christmas is also a time of excesses. We always have so much great food, garden fresh fruit and vegetables, plenty of delicious desserts, beautiful wine, mountains of presents and lots of great people to share it all with.
My family and I are definitely very fortunate. “CSR Bake a Difference” is an opportunity for those of us who are fortunate enough to be enjoying all of the wonderful excesses of Christmas to give something back. It is an event which I heard about through a fellow blogger Jeroxie. “Bake a Difference” is encouraging everyone to bake their Christmas presents this year instead of buying them, and donate the money they save to Mission Australia through this website www.csrbakeadifference.com.au.
CSR Sugar will then match each donation dollar for dollar up to $100,000. This means there is the potential to raise $200,000. Funds raised will go directly towards helping disadvantaged Australians over the Christmas period.
If you’d like to make a donation, all donations need to be made via the CSR Bake a Difference website . Jeroxie will be hosting the special “Bake a Difference” online blogging event. So go and have a look at her site. I will be joining her in submitting some yummy festive treats for Christmas. So keep an eye on my site for some Christmas baking ideas, Have a look at what everyone else is baking on Jeroxie site and make a difference by baking a present this year and donate the savings to CSR.
