‘Eating vegan plant-based food is one of the simplest but most powerful and effective things you can do as an individual to help reduce environmental devastation,’ says local Anthea Amore, publisher of the cookbook Passion.
She is asking for $40,000 to add to the $25,000 she has already spent in order to publish the vegan cookbook called Hungry.
She says, ‘I’ve spent the last three years creating new recipes (and some old favourites) and styling and shooting them. I’ve paid for a professional editor, proofreader and graphic designer (approximately $10,000). The book has gone to print and I’ve paid $15,000 deposit to set the printing in motion. So aside from the $25,000 we’ve spent we need the following: In order to collect the books from the Brisbane docks, I need the remaining $24,190 for the production costs, the 10 per cent government import GST tax ($4,081), the Port Services fees ($5,000) and $1,600 transport costs to move 16 pallets of books to my storage unit here in Mullumbimby!’
She also wants money for Paypal fees of $1,500 and finally $3,600 of costs to cover her crowdfunding costs on the online platform indiegogo.com. If you would like to support her, and who wouldn’t, go to https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hungry-for-more-crazy-good-vegan-food-cookbook#/.
