A Recipe For Happy Healthy Kids

Project 2015-07-28 21:50:29 +1200

We've put together a Play & Eat recipe book to fundraise for our tamariki but we're short of the final $ to get it finished.

Please help us get this scrumptuous wee book to the printers and while you're at it you'll get some DELICIOUS recipes to add to your weekly meals!!

Chinese Dumplings

Chinese Dumplings

Our Playcentre is constantly looking at new ways to fundraise to keep our centre running and resourced for our awesome kids.  One cool Mum (Jenna) thought of putting together a recipe book with a twist - lots of delicious family recipes from our diverse group of parents and caregivers AND a cool 'Recipes for Play' section - including how to make old favourites such as Playdough and Bubbles but also Slime! and Rainbow Foam amongst others - AWESOME.  There are vegeterian and allergy-friendly recipes that are easy to make (and tasty!), a full colour glossy photo per recipe throughout, and it's a handy A5 size.

Harper & Slime

4yr old Harper with Slime! Ooey Gooey fun.

Since last year we've put in hundreds of volunteer hours  organising and collating recipes; had wonderful food photographer Adele Brooks Baker at HEARTFelt volunteer to take the photos; and fabulous 'American Santa' Chris Dutton volunteer to do all the graphic design for us to get it print ready.  We've also managed to secure some advertising support from friendly local businesses*. 

BUT we're still $884 short of the printing cost required to get the 200 recipe books printed, even though our lovely printing company, Wakefields Digital, has given us a helpful discount to show their support.

Any support you can give would be greatly appreciated.

A massive THANK YOU to all of our pledgers - we've reached our target within the first few days of our campaign. Woop Woop! (and to think I was worried we wouldn't get there in 4 weeks).  We'll keep the campaign going to try and pre-sell as many copies of the recipe book as we can but I'll get hold of the printers pronto and book in a September printing date.

You guys are AWESOME!!
