SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (PRWEB) April 23, 2007
MothersClick.com (http://www.mothersclick.com), the first social networking site to offer online services exclusively for organizing and managing real-life moms' groups, is proud to announce that celebrity chef and Food Network host, Nigella Lawson, has joined their special initiative to honor moms and raise money for kids.
"I'm thrilled to be able to participate in such a valuable project," says Nigella Lawson, mother of two, who has written a foreword and contributed a select recipe for the cookbook.
As announced earlier this month, the "Cookbook for Moms" is the first of its kind, featuring a unique collection of family recipes and personal stories that have been submitted and voted on by moms online.
Just in time for Mother's Day, the book is now available for purchase at http://www.cookbookformoms.com. All book sale proceeds will be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, whose guidance-oriented character development programs are implemented through a national network of 4,000 neighborhood-based facilities that annually serve more than 4.6 million young people.
"We are very happy to have someone as widely-recognized and respected as Nigella helping our efforts," said Andra Davidson, president and co-founder of MothersClick. "This cookbook is our Mother's Day gift to the members of our online community and moms everywhere. The concept of sharing recipes is very much in line with MothersClick's overall mission of exchanging parenting information and advice between moms. And most satisfying of all: this purchase truly gives back, as all of our proceeds will support the kids being helped by The Boys & Girls Clubs."
"This is a unique collaboration of community and a novel fundraiser," says Roxanne Spillett, President, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. "We appreciate the charitable efforts of MothersClick on our behalf."
Featuring more than 50 original recipes, the "Cookbook for Moms" offers a treasured collection of family favorites, contributed by moms from across the world, recipes that are quick and healthy for busy families and dishes that can be prepared with children.
