A Hand for Haiti eBook + ATX Gluten-Free News: February 2010

Lauren from Celiac Teen (who by the way has some amazing gluten-free recipes!)  recently put together an eBook for Haiti. All proceeds will go to the Canadian Red Cross, which then goes to Haiti to help those in need. The cool thing is that the Canadian Government has agreed to match whatever is made in donations for Haiti until February 12th. Of course, you may continue to donate after February 12th.

I was honored to be a part of this eBook and thought my Balsamic- BBQ pulled pork sandwiches would be perfect for my contribution. There are many gluten-free/dairy-free recipes in this book, as well as non gluten-free recipes. Lots of great information from some of the internet’s best food blogs. Overall, there are 87 recipes from 71 people, WOW! What a great idea Lauren- thank you for being so kind and putting this together.

The minimum donation is $10, but you are welcome to donate more.Click here to buy: A Hand for Haiti
