Noonday...come find out more (and win)!

I've been a reader and fan of Kristan's blog for years, and am lucky enough to count her as a friend.  Kristan writes the hilarious Confessions of a Cookbook Queen.  She is the queen of cupcakes and sweets...and I know that I cannot read her posts in public because they usually result in a full-on, out-loud belly laugh. {Which doesn't go over all that well when you're sitting alone in Starbucks.  Go figure.}

Kristan is now a Noonday ambassador.  If you've never heard of Noonday, please click here for the story of how they started and their mission.  Simply, Noonday creates economic opportunity for the poor and vulnerable.

Here's an excerpt from Kristan's blog.  This really hit home with me...maybe it will for you, too.

"Helping others is NOT AN ALL OR NOTHING THING. World changer does not mean martyr. There is not some secret “good people” club that screens you on your knowledge of politics and does an inventory of how many items in your home are not Fair Trade. World changers start with a baby step. And that is okay."

Here are a few of my Noonday pieces.....
