Okay, so after hours and hours of asking for recipes, designing the ebook, reformatting recipes and researching ways to get it out there and get the money to Haiti, it is here.
First off, I would like to say thank you to every single person who has sent in recipes, tweeted about this, posted on their blogs about this and any other way you may have spread the word. Now, I can only hope that we get the same response for the actual ebook. After all, that is what this is about: selling ebooks to donate money to Haiti.
All proceeds will do to the Red Cross. The Canadian Red Cross that is. You see, I am Canadian so it only makes sense to donate to this one. Also, it has been in Haiti for many years, so they will be able to use the funds to help as in the best areas possible. And here’s the really important part: the Canadian Government will match all donations received by February 12th, that are marked for Haiti Relief (as I will be doing to these). They are matching donations made by individuals as well as those made from fundraisers for Haiti (like this ebook) by schools, businesses, social groups (that is what I believe we are, as blogging is a community of people, in this case coming together around food), etc.
Of course, you may continue to purchase the ebook and donate after the 12th, but getting it matched makes it just that much better! Also, my parents have agreed to match all donations up to $1000.
I’m utterly exhausted, but also extremely excited and ready to share. So here it is: There are 87 recipes contributed by 71 fantastic people. They are a collection of home. People from all over the world have provided recipes that bring them comfort. I have loved looking through them, and can’t wait to cook them! I hope you do too.
In terms of price, the ebook will cost as much as you want it to cost, with a bare minimum of $10. It is a donation, so that price is adjustable and you can donate as much as you wish! Whether you purchase it for $10 or $510, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. All together, we can make a difference. We can pool our donations and extend a hand to Haiti.
Enjoy this book. It has been an absolute labour of love. Best of all, it is for a good cause.
Notes: Being an ebook, you purchase the PDF file, then can print off as many copies as you wish!
EDIT: This ebook is no longer available. Over $6000 were raised in it’s effort. Thank you to everyone who helped me make that happen.
