What ten women can do...

when they set their minds and hearts to it. I caught a re-run of Dragons' Den today. It was about 10 women from SK who have raised over $1 Million from the sale of various cookbooks. The proceeds after the costs for printing, etc., have all gone to various charities for cancer research. Brought tears to my eyes. And yes, the Dragons donated the money requested to get the books more widely distributed (in exchange for tax receipts). The 2-3 minute segment had me crying like a baby.

The web site for this not-for-profit organization is:

Home Page :: Breast Friends

I'm ordering the cookbooks.
