boon typhoon relief
Food; talking about it, eating it, preparing it, seeking it out - is such an indulgence, and one many of us take for granted, living in our comfortable first world existence.
To remind us of those less fortunate during the world's most recent attack of indigestion which has manifested itself in the form of typhoons, earthquakes and tsunamis, Boon Chocolate have started a donation drive, with the help of Opportunity Australia, to help some of those affected by the typhoon in the Phillipines.
Alex from Creative Food tells us typhoon Parma swept through the northern Luzon hitting the rice granary area of the Philippines, meaning lots of crops have been destroyed. So far, they've managed to raise 3 tonnes of supplies in 6 days, however this is minute when it comes to what's needed to help locals cope with the devastation.
If you're in Sydney and can get to Darlinghurst, head along to:
Boon Chocolates, 251 Victoria St, Darlinghurst and make your contribution.
They're asking for:
- Tinned food
- Children's clothing
- Nappies and other baby care
Do it, and then perhaps reward yourself with one of their amazing hot chocolates (a win/win situation in my eyes) to warm you against the apparent blizzard visiting Sydney.
