Click yellow

This bright yellow oblong shape is a fruit! Another variety of Melon family called canary melon or Juan canari melon. The outer skin is bright yellow (like Canari bird) and inner flesh is white sweet& aromatic.

The bright yellow got my attention yesterday and decided would be great for this month Special Edition of Click Yellow event.
Pretty much Food blogger are aware about this special fundraising event. But the message is for my own silent friends/visitors. The bright shinny yellow side constantly reminds Bri and her situation. There is brief note about who Bri is and her situation. I did my level to chip in, participating in click event and publishing.

Big thanks to Jai & Bee who is hosting such event and you are truly inspirational in many ways!




TOGETHER we can make difference




This is an appeal on behalf of a group of food bloggers who are friends of Briana Brownlow @ Figs With Bri.

Bri was diagnosed with breast cancer two and half years ago. A mastectomy, chemotherapy and two years of relatively good health later, the cancer is back. It has metastasized to other parts of her body. At the age of 15, Bri lost her 41-year old mother to the disease. Now, she’s waging her own war against breast cancer. More about it here.

She is going through intensive chemo and other treatments and needs to focus single-mindedly on healing and finding what treatment works best for her. Her health insurance, unfortunately, does not cover holistic alternatives which she would like to try. Bri and her husband Marc have enough on their plates right now in addition to worrying about her medical bills.

The team organising the JUNE edition of CLICK at Jugalbandi has organised a fundraiser to help Bri and her family meet her out-of-pocket medical costs for ONE YEAR.

CLICK is a monthly theme-based photography contest hosted by Jugalbandi. This month’s theme is: YELLOW for Bri

Yellow is the colour of hope. Through the work of the LiveStrong Foundation, it has also come to signify the fight against cancer.

The entries can be viewed HERE. The deadline for entries is June 30, 2008. The fundraiser will extend until July 15, 2008.

The target amount is 12,000 U.S. dollars. We appeal to our fellow bloggers and readers to help us achieve this. Bri deserves a chance to explore all options, even if her insurance company thinks otherwise.

There’s a raffle with exciting prizes on offer. After viewing the list, you may make your donation HERE or at the Chip-In button on any participating site.

Your donation can be made securely through credit card or Pay Pal and goes directly to Bri’s account.

This month’s photo contest also has some prizes. Details HERE.

You can support this campaign by donating to the fundraiser, by participating in CLICK: the photo event, and by publicising this campaign.

What about you my reader , have you done at least one yet ?



Bri , you are in our prayers and you can surely beat it.
