What do you cook? Well, a team of experimental chefs is trying to answer that question by putting together a book of flexible recipes, called Flexitarian. But they need your help funding the project! I kicked in $30 through Kickstarter, which guarantees me a copy of the cookbook if the funding goes through. The project is 40% funded, and it will only go through if they reach their goal of $3,500. I want my cookbook, so head over there at give $5 to a good cause. All proceeds from sales of the book, once printed, go to benefit two organizations: Slow Food USA and Yoga Bear. (The former I’m wild about.)

I was forwarded this email from a friend. I’m registering now. If I can’t go, then I know my money is still going to a good place!

Hi guys,

This year, I’m co-chairing the annual GlamourGals Foundation event.  To refresh your memory, GlamourGals was founded by Rachel Doyle (Cornell ’05), and works to build compassionate teen leaders through service with the elderly.
We’re very excited to announce our upcoming event!
Glamour in the City
Thursday, May 13
26 Little West 12th Street
For only $25, not only are you donating to charity (all of the proceeds go directly back to improve programming for our teen girls), but you get all of the following amazing stuff!
– Drink all the free Patron, Ultimat, and Yuengling you want from 7-8pm (That’s probably worth more than $25 right there!)
– Get a $25 gift certificate to Butterfield 8 when you walk through the door
– You can enter to win a NYC weekend Staycation at the Loews Regency Hotel
– Mix your own perfume with Aromachology
This is going to be a super fun event – free booze, live DJ, and tons of hot New Yorkers!  And of course, lots of your super awesome Cornell friends will be there!
I know it seems really early to commit to this, but, trust me, you do not want to miss out on this great price!  Only $25 until March 31.  Then tickets jump up to $50!
Registration will take you less than a minute.  Click here to register today!
I would love to see you all come out to this great event and support a great cause!
