I am here at Blissdom this week(end), but I have to tear myself away from the wonderful presentations and amazing people to tell you about something I have had the incredible opportunity to be a part of.
When Julie from Dinner with Julie posted just after the Haiti earthquake about her vision to raise money and funds to donate, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. And as she embarked on the journey of putting together a compilation cookbook from 27 different food blogs and get editors and publishers and designers involved, I was blown away. I am so incredibly honored to be a part of it and to have contributed my small part. A great big thank-you to all who worked so tirelessly to make this come together as reality. It is nothing short of amazing.
All, as in 100%, of the proceeds from the sale of the book go to Doctors Without Borders and the Red Cross for their relief efforts in Haiti. In addition to that, the publishers, West Canadian Graphics and Blurb, are both matching donations up to $10,000. Plus, the Canadian government will match all donations up to February 12th! That means the book sale donations are tripled!!
For the book, it is full of 72 absolutely delicious recipes, available in both hardcover ($50) and softcover ($25), bound versions. Books are printed as they are ordered and will ship 8 days after your order. You can order them HERE, and please take a minute to virtually flip through the preview and look at the beautiful photography and delicious recipes.
