Giving back a little

by Patricia on April 14, 2009 · 2 comments

I like to spend my spare time thinking about happy things like chocolate, cupcakes, and blueberry pancakes. But sometimes it is important to take a step back and realize how fortunate I am in my life and give back a little.  So when I first came across Share Our Strength and its Great American Bake Sale (GABS) I thought that would be a perfect way to put those cupcakes to work.  And I almost organized a bake sale myself.  But then Kate from Cooking during Stolen Moments contacted me to see if I’d like to participate in her Virtual GABS.  Virtual?  What a great idea!  So I submitted a recipe for the e-book that Kate was compiling for the Virtual GABS.

I contributed the chocolate chunk cupcake that I posted last month(aka “the Ultimate Cupcake”).  But there are 170 recipes in the e-book contributed by a lot of great bloggers.  How can you get this e-book? You choose the amount you’d like to donate and in exchange you get this e-book chock full of recipes (not just cupcakes either).  Links to purchase the e-book are below.  But first a little more info…

Check out Cooking during Stolen Moments. Kate did a fantastic job organizing this event and compiling the ebook.  You can order the ebook from her site or take a look below for more details:

 


Welcome to the Virtual Great American Bake Sale. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these ebooks will go toward Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale program. Funds raised through Great American Bake Sale are donated to after-school and summer feeding programs–food programs that many kids depend on when school is not in session. Great American Bake Sale is a program of Share Our Strength, a national organization working to make sure no kid in America grows up hungry.
 
The ebooks are a compilation of recipes from submitters across the blogosphere and beyond. The ebooks are available for purchase based on any donation amount of the buyer’s choosing.
