It's the last day. :) I'm amazed I've made it this far like this - I entered the contest out of curiosity and I've made it so far :O If you haven't voted yet though, today's the last day to do it!

All you need to do is like this page - ONLY until April 2 or 3:

And then, like this photo and ONLY this photo:

Thanks! :)

I'm pretty sure everyone has heard about Japan. Yesterday, a massive earthquake hit. If that wasn't bad enough, the coast was pummelled by a tsunami caused by the same tectonic shifts that caused the quake. Now, they're having trouble with nuclear reactors that have been disturbed by the quake and are overheating.

What can you do? (links at bottom of post)
There are several methods of going about this. First - you can text the Red Cross at 90999 to donate $10. It will show up on your next cell phone bill. Second, you can give to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund by GlobalGiving. Or to ShelterBox. Or even to World Vision.

Here's my proposal.
Cookies for Japan. I am currently trying to find an agency where the funds will not be used for overhead and 'administrative fees'; when I find one, I will put the name out and donate what I have. But the proposal; I am ServSafe certified and am pursuing my culinary major - with a focus on baking and pastry arts. Here's the idea:

A donation to Cookies for Japan (and then to another charitable organisation) of $10 would get you a handwritten note with a small drawing. When you kick it up to $20, that's when the cookies come in.

$20 would get you a dozen cookies, a half dozen pieces of cookie cake, a dozen raisin spice bars, or eight mini cupcakes shipped to your US location. (Mini cupcakes would be location-dependant as icing does, unfortunately, melt.)

So, thoughts? All feedback is welcome.

Note: I am absorbing all costs of cookies and shipping. The idea is to give 100% of the money to those that need it.

Whoever paid for my account extension, thank you so much. It's been a rough week and to have someone up and do that for me out of the blue.. thank you so, so much. And whoever you are, I owe you one. :) One day I'll try to pass it along and do the same for someone else. ^^

I'm crowdsourcing it! So give me some votes so I can put together seven outfits!

This is mostly a test of sorts, to see if people will come up with something doable. I'm really looking forward to seeing it play out~

Poll here.

I was finally convinced into doing this by bella_eternal - plus it gives me a place to list things I'll trade for, should the need arise in a sales post. :)
