Aren't these cookies cute? I think so! The really cool thing is they are doing much more then providing eye candy to you and me. They are just a tiny but gorgeous item that are being baked by some amazing Australians right now in a very unique way. These cute little cookies have been named 'Heart of Queensland' cookies and were baked by @roulla to do some fundraising for the flood relief.
With the overwhelming size of the floods you might feel like you can't help the flood victims but you can! Can you bake a cake, cook a sausage or make a sandwich? and heck if you can't do that then maybe you can help out with delivery?Well if you are in the Brisbane area you could be helping out in a pretty simple way that ends up being a very important. A very very COOL group of people are feeding those cleaning up, be they owners of the houses and or businesses that were effected, tradies, council workers or volunteers who showed up in their thousands to help the city of Brisbane and Ipswich get back on its feet.
Until a few days ago Digella (Danielle) had a cute little blog, I stumbled across just a few days ago on one of my recent blog outings (read here gets lost in blog land often and can't find her way out!) Now she has a website called Baked Relief and and there is loads of details on where you can drop food of to so please go and check it out.
They have had such a wonderful response they were trending in the top 5 tweets in Australia, their blog had 8,000 hits in a week and the new website http://www.bakedrelief.org/ had 2,237 hits on the first day! HOW AWESOME IS THAT (sorry for shouting but that just makes me excited!)
You can find them on Twitter via @BakedRelief, @digellabakes and @melkettle or you can look up #bakedrelief where up to the second details are posted.
For those of us who are too far away or unable to bake and or deliver you can donate some much needed funds to help make an extra meal. You can find all details on the Baked Relief website.
