A huge thanks to all Blurbarians who purchased Blog Aid – Recipes for Haiti. This collaborative cookbook, spearheaded by Canada’s own Julie Van Rosendaal of “Dinner with Julie,” racked up the sales and resulted in a mega-donation to fund relief efforts in Haiti.
Sales of this limited-edition book ended February 12, 2010 – exactly one month after the tragic earthquake in Haiti. As mentioned in our earlier post, sales proceeds were matched by the Canadian Red Cross.
Final tally: 1,818 books sold and a grand total of $47,266 donated to Haiti’s relief efforts (total includes matching funds). Well done! Here’s to the power of books and to the generosity of Blurbarians worldwide. We always knew you were big-hearted people!
