Save BOOBS, Win a Cookbook

Just a reminder: it's not too late to donate for a great cause and have a chance to win a cookbook! So far nfmgirl is the only one in the running!

Did I get your attention? :)


A few weeks ago I wrote that I will be walking in the 2 day Avon Breast Cancer Walk in DC the first weekend of May. The reason for this walk is to raise awareness for breast cancer and to raise money for the research. I am required to raise $1800!

With my personal contribution and the help of my friends and a few awesome food bloggers (Leslie, Paz, Fiona, Aaron) I already raised $1011.20.

Here's where I really hope you all will come in: for every $10 dollar donation on my Avon Breast Cancer Walk website, you will get one raffle ticket to win either one of the two cookbooks below (please leave a comment here and let me know which book you prefer). So if you donate $20, your chances of winning are doubled!



Every dollar helps and I really appreciate your help in these difficult times. It is all for a great cause (I don't receive a penny from this).
This contest will end April 5th.

Ha, before I even read where you said "Did I get your attention?" I had already decided I was going to tell say "ha, I must say, your blog title really grabbed my attention" ; )

But in all seriousness, that's awesome what you are doing!!

Hi, Olga! Yep, you got my attention, and my donation. I'd love to be entered in your contest for the Whole Foods book.

Good luck on reaching your goal!

My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer approx 2 years ago and had a double mastectomy and had all of her lymph nodes removed. Since that time the cancer has spread to her brain. She has had major complications including a ruptured ulcer (she almost died) and a broken hip (balance issues). Next week she is undergoing her 2nd round of whole head radiation (15 treatments). That's when she "goes away" and really isn't my mom because of how it affects her. Cancer is such a horrific thing. Thank you for walking.
