Donate for Something Tasty
I am running the ING New York City Marathon and raising funds for ING Run For Something Better. Every little bit helps, even $5 would be great. As an added incentive, I am offering the following gifts for donations. I have included suggested donation amounts for gifts, but any donation gets any gift. One gift per person. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Rooftop Dinner (Suggested: $100)
A tasty meal for you and a guest on my lovely rooftop (weather permitting).
Butternut Pound Cake (Suggested: $50)
This is what my grandmother always made for my birthday. It takes three hours to bake in all the love.
Batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies (Suggested: $25)
Nothing says loving like something fresh from the oven. Alternatives: brownies, banana cream pie, or cheesecake.
Books! (Suggested: $20)
Two books, selected from my personal stash, especially for YOU.
I have committed to raising $2750 (yikes!), but I am prepared to pay that amount myself. It will mean ramen for every meal and living very frugally for the next 2-3 months, but I think the cause is important. I wish I had started running as a kid. Anyway, it will be a much more fun September and October if I'm gratefully baking and cooking. My grandmother's cheesecake recipe is delicious.
Here's the link to donate:
**If you don't live in New York, everything but the rooftop dinner, banana cream pie, and cheesecake can probably be shipped. We'll work something out.**
