Feeding The Kraken or Child Monster!
New mother needs your help to create a crowd sourced recipe book to feed children
By: Dark Helix Press
After the book launch, JF gave birth to a healthy baby boy who has been given the nickname of "The Kraken" in her household.
"I really need help from parents to figure out what to feed my kraken baby," JF lamented as she faced a screaming toddler seated in his high chair. "Surely all new parents must face the same problem. If we each share one recipe and a parenting tip, we will have a super book of knowledge on how to feed these little monsters!"
Hence, the idea of crowdsourcing "Feeding The Kraken!", a book containing children recipes and parenting advice was born. The premise is simple: each "parent savior" pledges to contribute $2 and their best recipe along with one parenting tip. At the end, each supporter will receive a copy of the e-book which contains everyone's recipes. For $30, the "super parent savior" can send in a photo and customize the front page of the book for their family.
Recipe categories include breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and "extraordinary circumstances"
Interested in keeping this crowd sourced knowledge alive for future parents, Dark Helix Press will continue selling the book for $2-5 post campaign (dependent on number of recipes), with proceeds going to The Hospital For Sick Children, a world class children's hospital located in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The campaign runs from Monday, June 20, 2016 - Friday, Aug 19, 2016 and can be accessed through this link: https://www.kickstarter.com/
