Who needs chocolate?
I know a silly question – if you don’t need chocolate 24/7 then I am not sure why you are here to be honest.
If you need something to fuel your lockdown home workouts or Netflix marathons you have come to the right place.
Now that I have your attention I can reveal my big plans (or not so big, maybe mouse sized is more accurate).
I want to combine my love for baking with a cause that is very close to my heart, equality for the disabled. I will be baking and sending brownies to people who donate to my charity fundraising for Scope – The Disability Equality Charity.
I started writing this blog in 2019 to help empower people to be proud of their differences whatever they may be. These differences should never stop people doing what they most want to do. I know that I am extremely fortunate to be able to find a way of doing almost anything I want despite my cerebral palsy (just let me know if you want to learn how to walk like a pigeon I know it is very much on trend at the moment). This is not the case for a lot of other people. These people have huge amounts to contribute to society but are stopped due to the attitudes of other people and the prejudices they face daily. This is why I feel the need to support Scope.
Scope are an incredible charity who want to achieve a society where all disabled people enjoy equality and fairness. They provide practical advice and emotional support whenever people need them most. They use their collective power to change attitudes and end injustice. They campaign relentlessly to create a fairer society.
So if you need a chocolate hit to cheer up these darker evenings and satisfy those cravings, place please help me support such an important cause (or you can ask me to send a box to a friend). I cannot guarantee I won’t burn myself in the process but it’s a risk I am willing to take (have a read of my earlier blog cooking here: yasmindenehy.home.blog/2019/10/22/cooking/ for some other kitchen related injuries I have achieved).
So let’s assess the options – keeping everyone happy is hard work so hope you like the sound of one of the below:
Raspberry and White Blondies
Vegan Double Chocolate
Gluten Free Chocolate
Brownies will be delivered in boxes of six. I will bake brownies over weekends and dispatch them on Mondays for delivery via Royal Mail.
Minimum donation: £10 per box and all profits will go to Scope.
Mixed boxes available on request.
To donate and order your brownies please visit: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/belikeyazzi
I don’t take any responsibility for the consequences of of eating the whole box in one go. Congratulations are required I reckon.
Thank you in advance!
