There have been many times since I started blogging that I’ve been thankful and proud to be part of such a caring and giving group of individuals. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been blown away with the love and support that the blogging community has shown Jennifer Perillo, who I mentioned a few weeks back lost her husband to a sudden heart attack, leaving behind two young daughters ages 3 and 8.
In the wake of his death, bloggers around the country have come together to raise money for Jennifer and her girls. If you want to read more about the project, you can do so HERE. All of the money raised will go directly to Jennifer and her girls to help cover expenses and provide a fun for her girls’ future.
A friend and fellow food editor at work, Amy of Things We Make, thought it would be great to join forces to raise money. So we’ve put together a pretty amazing baked goods gift basket for the highest bidder. The basket can be redeemed any time between now and the end of 2011 with two week advance notice, making it perfect for the holidays or a large gathering.
The basket includes:
*A loaf of my Whole Wheat Flax Seed Banana Bread
*A batch of my Homemade Larabars (the most popular recipe on this site!)
*Two dozen cookies from Espresso and Cream (you choose any recipe on this site)
*1 quart of Amy’s Homemade Granola
*A loaf of bread of your choosing: Zucchini, Chocolate or Cherry Nut
*A batch of Amy’s Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
Pretty amazing, right? Bidding will begin at $50; all bids can be posted below so you will know where the bidding is at throughout the process. Bidding closes on Wednesday, August 30th.
Thanks in advance for your generosity in supporting this amazing project!
