A Call to Action

Hey, everyone! I’ve returned from my weekend apartment hunting in Madison! Happily, my new roommate and I were successful in our search and are just waiting to hear back about the applications we turned in yesterday. More about that later; now I’ve got to talk about something much more important.

Hopefully everyone is aware of Chocolate-Covered Katie‘s wonderful charity page view drive, Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness, and hopefully you’ve all been clicking your little hearts out lately. Unfortunately, one rather sad individual left Katie a mean-spirited comment, accusing her of faking things on her blog and manufacturing the charity drive as a way to make money for herself. Understandably, Katie was upset by this accusation, and responded here. As you might imagine, devoted CCK fans have left lots of lovely supportive comments, but I think we can do more. So I’m challenging all of you to double your Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness efforts, starting right now. Go over to Katie’s blog and spend a few extra minutes following links and checking out all her recipes. Let’s show our support for Katie and her project by making it even more successful!

Charity has never looked better.

Look, I’ll make it easy for you – here for your viewing ease are a few links to some tantalizing CCK recipes. Go wild! Click away! And let Katie know that one sour grape doesn’t have to spoil the whole bunch. ;)

Chocolate-Covered Charity

Hi, friends! Maybe you remember my post about giving back during MoFo – I was promoting Project Feed Me and talking about the importance of recognizing that not everybody is lucky enough to be able to participate in a whole month dedicated to blogging about delicious food. It’s not too late to join Project Feed Me, by the way, and all you have to do is commit to buying two nonperishable food items a week. So go check that out!

If you’re looking for another way to help do some good during the holiday season, look no further than everybody’s favorite chocolate-covered blogger, Katie. The wonderfully generous and giving Miss Katie has come up with an awesome idea to help raise money for charity. Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness makes participation super simple. Since Katie makes a small amount of money for every link clicked and page viewed on her blog, she’s decided to host a page-view charity drive. Basically, all you have to do is click around her blog as much as possible, and she’ll donate all the money she makes this month from her blog to a wonderful charity. Let me say that again – you click links, Katie gets money, Katie gives money to charity. So easy, a caveman could do it! Provided said caveman had internet access… so, maybe not. Anyway.

Chocolate-Covered charity - the best kind!

You probably already drool over Katie’s delicious creations, so why not check out her Fudge Babies again? Perhaps you could reconsider eating Brownie Batter Oatmeal for breakfast. Or maybe you just want to have a little “aww” moment while you look at her adorable pups. So what are you waiting for?! Get thee to the best chocolate-covered blog around and click your little heart out! Post about Operation Chocolate-Covered Kindness on your own blog! Encourage others to participate! Katie’s making this so easy that you have no excuse not to participate.

Also, don’t forget to enter my Papa Tofu (+ some sort of surprise!) giveaway! I’m so excited to be doing this and I can’t wait to pick a winner next week. :)
