No matter how you feel about the government bailout of the nation's largest banks, I think you'll agree that there's one bank that we can't allow to fail: the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. My friend Deb over on Jersey Bites invited me to join an upcoming blogging campaign she is coordinating on behalf of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey -- the largest food bank in the state.

Hi Roxy.
This is a very good cause. In Portugal there´s a similar campaign going on. We should all contribute even with just a little.
A good Sunday.
