The Look, Cook, and Eat Kickstarter campaign has reached $44,053 of the $45,000 goal! With only 66 hours to go, the end is in sight!
If you want to be the one to push them over the top, pledge now! (And of course, you can put a little gravy on those potatoes if you like.)
The project has gotten a good amount of media coverage. Rumor has it Nathan Fillion even retweeted it!
Thanks to everyone who has supported this project to create a digital how-to cooking magazine designed for those with intellectual disabilities to help promote an independent lifestyle.
I thank you. Mia thanks you. 🙂
Here’s another of my promised chicken haiku for those who contributed to Raleigh Review‘s scholarship fund:
Feathers in the yard
and chickens cringe from touch—
the prick of new growth.
We’ve entered molting season at Coop de Kaferberg.
Poor Victoria has lost all her tail feathers! She is very grumpy about that. (“Look away! I’m hideous!”) She doesn’t like to be picked up right now. Having all those new feathers coming in is a little like teething in babies—it needs to happen, but it doesn’t feel good.
Victoria is a faverolle, which is a variety of chicken that has feathers on the feet. You can see where the new pin feathers are coming in. If they get bumped and broken, they bleed profusely.
Hang in there, Victoria! It will be over soon. (Well, in a few months, if last year is any indication…)
Chicks in the backyard
tumbling down the ramp—
the sun is up.
Another of my chicken haiku promised for Raleigh Review scholarship donors!
Scratch, scratch, scratch,
digging for gold flecks—
when do dreams hatch?
Incidentally, Look, Cook, and Eat has garnered 200+ backers and over $25,000 for their Kickstarter campaign to create a digital how-to cooking magazine for those with intellectual disabilities. With just under two weeks to go, they still need about $18,000 to hit their goal and be funded. Scratch, scratch, scratch.
Look, Cook, and Eat is getting some press for its Kickstarter campaign. Check out Epicurious and WHO-TV in Des Moines for their coverage.
This is a fantastic project that opens up the world of cooking for intellectually disabled adults. Please support it on Kickstarter or by sharing this information with those who may be interested. Thanks!
