You have a few more days to get your entries to me for LiveSTRONG With A Taste Of Yellow.
Entries with the yellow wristband in the photo need to be in by the 19th April wherever that falls where you live.
All other entries without the yellow wristband I'm giving you an extra week and will accept entries up until 27th April.
On another note this is about music - but as Shakespeare wrote if music be the food of love, play on.
I recently received a selection of CDs from Putumayo. You can read about them on their website but here is a paragraph from their about page.
The company’s commitment to helping communities in the countries where the music originates has led to the label contributing more than a million dollars to worthwhile non-profit organizations around the world. After Katrina, Putumayo embarked on a campaign to raise funds and awareness for musicians and others affected by the hurricane. Putumayo has contributed more than $250,000 of the proceeds from New Orleans and its other New Orleans-themed CDs to charities working in New Orleans and New Orleans musicians. Other charitable recipients include Coffee Kids, Oxfam, Mercy Corps, Search for Common Ground and more including recently Slowfood.
On the weekend I sat down with the musicians in the family, (I'm actually the only one who can't sing or play an instrument), to judge the quality. I knew I liked the music but an opinion from a professional is always useful. It was favourable to the point of they were impressed.
There are even a couple of recipes on the food themed ones titled Music From The Wine Lands and Music From The Chocolate Lands. Naturally they happen to be my favourites.
As with all freebies I receive I am under no obligation to write about them favourably or otherwise. I do not run adds on my site and as I no longer work for an income any freebies related to my interests are always received gratefully. If I do like the item I am happy to share my thoughts with my readers.
