First, we want to thank everyone for the wonderful response we had on this post. We have the best readers! My heart was warmed as I read your comments, and as I saw how many of you purchased cookbooks for the Fish family. Not to mention all the people who posted links on facebook and pinterest! Experiences like this remind me of how many good people there are in the world. Thank you!
The Winner of the “Blogging for Fishes” Cookbook is:
#53 Jennifer (There is a prayer in my heart for your step daughter).
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address, and we’ll send you your new cookbook first thing Monday morning!
Today I write for you in the role of a mother more than that of a food blogger. I know that my effort to help this sweet family is really as a blogger. I have not even met any of them. But my mother’s heart aches for them, and the mother in me wants to fight for them! Ali at Lemon Poppy contacted The Sisters Cafe and asked us to join forces with 40+ bloggers to create a cookbook of our very favorite recipes in an effort to help mitigate the huge costs incurred by the treatment of two of the Fish daughters. They have a rare gene dysfunction called Leaky SCID (Severe Combined Immune Deficiency). Here is their story in their own words:
I know that there are many in the world who need help and the Fishes are not the only ones fighting uphill battles. But my family and myself are healthy and strong, and we want to join forces with the world to help as many as we can!
“Blogging for Fishes” is not just a throw-away charity cookbook either. It really is a good cookbook. It is jam packed with tried and true favorite recipes of bloggers, as well as several of the Fish family favorites. Each recipe is accompanied by a beautiful picture, and the pages are coated so that you can actually use this cookbook in the kitchen and not worry about little spills wrecking it. The cookbook is available in printed form or as an ebook. You can purchase it HERE.
You can also visit the family blog HERE to donate in other ways.
We are offering one of the “Blogging for Fishes” printed cookbooks as a giveaway. Normally we share a recipe from the cookbook we are highlighting, but I didn’t want to detract from the story of this family. Just know that the recipes really are wonderful! Leave a comment to be entered, and we will announce the winner this weekend.
