The Birds Of McAllister

 As you may or may not know, I belong to a group of ladies who all exercise at the Port Coquitlam Curves fitness studio. Our nickname is "The Birds Of McAllister" and as a group we fund raise throughout the year for different charities.

Each spring we collect food and toiletries which the group then donates to a local transition house.  This year we challenged the Port Alberni Curves to collect more than us. As an added incentive the losers would have to pose for a "tastefully"  nude calendar. All proceeds from the sale of the calendar would be donated to  charity!

Well despite collecting 2428 pounds  we lost the challenge, but only by 107lbs. A loss is still a loss, so with the help of Classic White Photography.  our 2012 calendar, featuring " The Birds Of McAllister", was born.

I was a participant in the photo shoot , check out "Mrs November".  So with that in mind, I am putting a call out to all my readers to help sell some calendars. Check out The Birds  for more information about our group and calendar orders.

All proceeds from the sales go to two local charities in our area:  Tri-City Transition House and the Learning Disabilities Association Girls Programs.

We had a calendar launch party at Samz Pub on Nov 13 and sold 54 calandars and raffled off a tray of decorated corset cookies.

Thank you for your support.

May your cookies never crumble!!

Benefit Fiesta For Project Somos

I attended Benefit Fiesta fund raiser for Project Somos last week at Heritage Hall in Vancouver.  Project Somos is not only building a Children's Village but is also helping to build a better future for orphaned children of Guatemala.

To help support the effort of this wonderful cause, I baked a batch of  Project Somos logo cookies to sell at the event.  Along with the cookies, I also donated a flower bouquet as one of the raffle prizes. 

May your cookies never crumble!!

Once a  month I help serve tea to the moms and dads that have a baby in the NICU at the Royal Columbian Hospital. Here are just a few pictures of the cookies I have baked for the teas.
