I was so happy to hear about an initiative from three food bloggers who are raising money for the relief efforts in Haiti. Chrystal Baker of the Duo Dishes blog told us about Stir It 28: Food Bloggers Align for Haiti Relief. They’ve partnered with Flanboyanteats and Cococooks for a benefit in four cities across the country on February 21. Here’s the info for Los Angeles:

Where: In Los Angeles, we are holding our fundraiser event at a private home in Hollywood. Grab your ticket at the advance price of $30, and you’re guaranteed to an afternoon of food and cocktails. All money from tickets will be donated to our designated charities–Share our Strength and Yele.
