It's a wrap!

Wow, what a run. The Blog Aid cookbook was a spectacular success, selling 1818 cookbooks in a little over a week and raising, with matched funds from the Canadian government, $47,166.00 for Haiti relief. (That's almost 50 grand you guys!) A huge thank you to partners and tireless supporters West Canadian Graphics and Blurb,
to the writers and bloggers who donated their time and talent via recipes and images that together made a cookbook, and to Cathryn Ironside, who spent countless hours turning that copy into something we could all keep on our kitchen shelves and use to feed our families and friends. What wonderful evidence of what good can come from a single thought, when so many generous people work together to bring an idea to fruition.

I'm so proud of and grateful to everyone involved, and so thankful to all who purchased a copy. Truly - my deepest thanks.

Please do continue to support the efforts of the Red Cross and Doctors without Borders as they continue their relief efforts in Haiti.

  1. Just amazing! It was a great joy to be a part of this, and I echo your thanks to all involved, Julie. Special thanks to you for lighting the spark that burst us all into flame. Your tireless enthusiasm really brought this to life, and we were able to do far more together than we'd ever be able to do alone. What a gift!

    God bless you bloggers. And God bless Haiti.
