Thanks to this story on the BBC's website we've just found out that today is the first "World Porridge Day" which, as well as marking the World Porridge Making Championships, is helping to raise money for Mary's Meals.
Please spare a couple of minutes to visit their site and find out how to donate a little something to this worthy cause.
Or click here to go directly to the donations page. They even accept PayPal - and we pretty much all have an account!
Just 7 euros feeds a child with nutritional porridge at school for a whole year - that's the price of a single Big Mac Meal....
To our friends across the Atlantic "porridge" = "oatmeal"!
