I thought starting our roundup, that some information on statistics for world poverty would be powerful. As I spent time researching, I found it to be a lot more than powerful. The statistics are mind boggling and if you'd like to read more, please follow these stats.
Judging by the momentum that's growing at the BloggerAid Forum , I truly believe we have many people who really and truly would like to be able to help but don't really know how. Sometimes it just takes a few ideas to stimulate more ideas. That's what's been happening and we're all looking forward to full steam ahead in the new year.
Equal Opportunity Kitchen sent out a call for recipes that you would feed for hungry guests who came into your home. We're thrilled to see the entries from people who are connected to this cause.
