Help me fight cancer!

This past weekend was the Avon 2-day Walk for Breast Cancer, and I was inspired to sign me and Dave up for next year's walk. We're excited, but there is a lot of fund-raising to do.

Because it's my 5-year anniversary, I've already committed to raising $1,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in the Light the Night Walk in September. The Avon walk is another $1,800, but at least that's not until June 2011. At any rate, I figure it's never too early to start fund-raising, especially with me and Dave raising $1,800 each.

I've decided to do little things here and there, such as a weekly bake sale at work, but the big push is going to be a fundraising incentive with recipe booklets that I'm going to print up. If you donate $50 to either cause (to me or Dave), I will give you a recipe booklet full of my favorite and most epic recipes of all time. (Red for Light the Night, pink for Avon 2-day.) Each book will have around 50-60 recipes. I'm currently typing them up, and I'll have the books printed soon. So far I've gotten through Appetizers, Drinks, Main Courses, and I'm partway through Vegetables and Sides. And yes, there is an amazing dessert section.

If you would like to donate to either of my walks, please click these links to find my pages:
And as I said, I will give you a recipe booklet with every $50 minimum donation. And if you donate, please check if your employer matches donations, because that can be a great help, too (and I would give you an extra cookbook!).

I'll keep posting and basically annoying the bejeesus out of everyone until I reach my goals, so don't worry, this will hardly be your last opportunity, but help me off to a great start!
