  1. You’re 16th now ๐Ÿ™‚ You’ve got us all thinking and talking about poverty though, and I think that’s equally as important as raising money in the long term. Well done, you’re an inspiration.

  2. 14th now! And you are doing a great job of showing how many other aspects of life hunger affects.


  3. I think Katherine could be your LBL challenge sister. Similarly she likes whole foods scratch cooking.
    To see her blog go to greenthickies dotcom and look for

    She adapted her green smoothie recipe for the challenge and has a bean burger that people here might like. One other thing it looks like she is doing is using her passata as a salad dressing.

  4. You appear to be at number 10 now …
