Wonderful idea! How much will go to the PF? I'll take 10 for sure, maybe more:)

I think I could do a few (5) personally, but I think our chapter could sell at least 20.

The estimates that are coming in are very encouraging. Thank you! If you are new to this topic, please post your estimate! :)

RE timeframe: The cookbooks will take a couple months to put together, print, and distribute. They will not be ready by the walk-a-thon THIS year. We would love to sell this cookbook for years to come at all sorts of PF events.

RE: profit margins: There are several variables that have not been decided. We look forward to sharing our plan with everyone when the details are firm.

Many thanks! :)

I think a minimum of 5...possibly 10. I'd purchase them for the fundraiser and then give them to friends/family. Depending on the timing, if I'm up and about, I may look into other ways to actually sell some, possibly increasing the total I could be responsible for up to 15 or 20 (thinking about my local group friends, like playgroup, other moms in the neighborhood, etc.).

Great idea about using them as gifts!
