Update on Never Seconds blog

Back in June, I wrote my first blog post. OK, well that is not true. Back in June of 2010, I wrote my first blog post. Then in July of 2010, I helped advertise a raw food cookbook give away. Then I did not post again until June of this year. I have issues in not sticking with something once I start! In my third (but we are calling it the first) post, I talked about the inspiration gifted to me by a 9-year old Scottish blogger.

I thought I would give an update on where things stand. Veg is on summer holidays. She is having one school per week guest blog about what they are eating for lunch. Last week, it was a 9-year old girl from Wales. This week it is two kids from Herefordshire. They have not said if they are girls, boys, or their ages. I am excited to read the posts this week as this school eats vegetarian. I am looking forward to seeing what they eat all week!!!

The most exciting news is that Veg has garnered 7019 donations totaling £111,264.06 for a whopping 1589% over her original goal. All of this money is going to Mary's Meals. Remember .93 cents of every $1 you give to this organization goes directly to the kids. In October, Veg and her family are traveling to visit the kitchen her donations built and the kids who eat there.

It still blows my mind what this little girl accomplished in such a short time. SO, there is the update.  If you have the desire to share in this amazing journey please consider giving.
