My name is Keith and I write the Oh!Bento UK blog. My lovely friend Karen has allowed me to hijack her blog :)
My post today has a slight serious tone but it is well worth it I promise.
In the UK we have a charity raising event called Red Nose Day which helps raise funds for children in Africa. The event is a huge production that features many celebrities taking part in sketches, specials of TV series ( like Doctor Who! ) and many celebrities go to Africa to highlight the horrible conditions in which children live.
I want to do my part so I have made a donation page and have set a small target of ￡50 ( ￡15 has already been donated and I hope we can raise more.)
I will be making some Red Nose Day themed bento to help raise awareness of this great event. I hope you can all spread the news as the more people that know, the higher the chance we can make a difference.
And if you can make a small contribution it would be highly appreciated.
More information and donations can be made here.
[Note From Karen: Outside of the UK you can still sponsor ... but you need to fudge the system a bit by entering a proper UK zipcode and street. Feel free to email me and I can hook you up!]
Here is a Red Nose Sandwich to celebrate the first donation :)
And from Karen ... a favorite Red Nose Day sketch in two parts:
