Recipe Book Fundraiser?

For those of you on Facebook, I've already bombarded you with a message for your opinion on me putting together a recipe book with recipes from those in "our" community.  I belong to a couple of communities, so my goal is for it to encompass both major communities to which I belong, the community of loss, and the community of infertility.

For those of you who aren't on Facebook (or at least not friends with me), please read on, and let me know your thoughts.

For a fundraiser to help us raise money for the adoption, my cousin recommended putting together a recipe book with recipes supplies by those of us who are in this exclusive club (that none of us want to belong to).  My goal is to put the recipes in there (giving each person credit for the recipe(s) they submit), facts and information about loss and infertility, resources, and information about how to memorialize your baby's name. I also thought about doing a page with a dedication to all baby's names and possibly blogs (if someone wants their blog mentioned in there).

Would this be something you would be interested in contributing to and/or purchasing?  Please let me know any thoughts or suggestions you might have! 
 
I appreciate everything you all have done for me as we travel on this journey!  I love you all!

I am new to your blog, but think this is a wonderful idea, please keep me posted about this, I can try to come up with something to submit :)
I would also consider purchasing for our support group, I just received word it is approved and I am chapter leader! as well as for memory boxes I am working with our OB to have at our local hospital. Your beautiful Bailey was born on our Angel River's 1st birthday. It's unfortunate to meet under these circumstances, but glad we can connect.

Sounds like a great idea, I am not a friend of yours on FB so keep me posted.

I mentioned it on Facebook already but again I think it's a great idea :)

I like this idea! I'd be happy to contribute a recipe-I have a ton! And I would love to buy a copy of the finished product and help support you on your adoption journey and get the word out on infertility and loss.

I would certainly contribute recipes. I think anything published for more information on infertility, baby loss & adoption is a GREAT idea! I think it's a good idea. Just let me know when you want to start getting recipes. I don't follow you on facebook, but I do read this.
