Breadline Africa's Blogger Bakeoff: Bake Bread, Give Dough

Are you a bread baking blogger who wants to make the world a better place? Sign on up for Breadline Africa's Blogger Bakeoff, a year-long campaign (October 15, 2008-October 15, 2009) to raise 1 million dollars for Breadline Africa's projects by, "baking bread and giving dough."

Here's how it works.

1. Join the campaign.

2. Add a Breadline Blogger Bakeoff fundraising widget to your blog.

3. Make a donation to Breadline Africa. Breadline Africa is a South Africa based organization working to alleviate poverty in Africa. You can see a list of projects they support by clicking here.

4. Upload your bread recipe with a photo or video.

5. Vote for your favorite recipes in each of the three categories:
  • Most Nutritious
  • Most Unusual
  • Best Traditional
The winner in each category will receive a $250 Amazon voucher.

6. Tag/invite five other bloggers to join the campaign.

7. Invite your friends and readers to donate to Breadline Africa. The participant who refers the most donations will receive a $500 Amazon voucher, and have their name on a Breadline Africa kitchen built from a converted shipping container. You can see a container that was converted into a classroom by clicking here.

Below are links to some of the bloggers who have participated, and their recipes:
