Chef Gordon Ramsey

I have just had to take a deep breath to do something that I find very difficult to do for today’s GIVE.

I am finding myself doing more things which are out of my comfort zone by doing 365give. A challenge but a great way to get beyond your fear. Not only do I put my personal life out into the world for everyone to read, but I am doing the one thing I fear most……. Asking for help and money from other people.

I have registered for an event that is taking place in Toronto in just a few weeks. The event is called The Chef’s Challenge with celebrity guest Chef Gordon Ramsey. I was inspired by this event because I thought it would be a great opportunity to create awareness for 365give and a great way to give support to women.  This event is supporting the education and research for women’s cancers through Mount Sinai Hospital.

It taps into one of my passions to GIVE and I am a foodie at heart. I love to cook and I love great food. You have likely seen the magazines with the really pretty food shots. That’s what I like to create. Beautiful food.

For many years I had a great opportunity to work with the best chef’s in Toronto through a charity event I produced called Toronto Taste which raises money for Second Harvest. My passion for food grew because of this event The Chef’s Challenge is the perfect recipe for all of my talents. Fundraising, food and giving back.

If you are inspired by this post, I need your help. I have to raise a minimum of $2500 to actually participate on the main stage of this event with Gordon Ramsey and all the other great chef’s. My fundraising goal is much greater than this of course. As I am going to go all the way to Toronto I want to make a really big impact by doing more. I am including the link to my profile for more details and if you can support me I would very much appreciate it.

Talk about getting over your fears, now I am asking for help from perfect strangers!
