I’m Richard Curtis. Not ‘the’ Richard Curtis you understand but it is my real name, and I’m shamelessly trading in on it. All for a good cause I hasten to add.
That cause is the eradication of extreme poverty and the needless , preventable, deaths of thousands of children every day. I’m sick of hearing stats like 5 children dying of malnutrition every minute. Then there’s malaria , diarrhoea, measles and pneumonia…..
Together we can do something about it.
I’ve written 4 cook books and all proceeds go to Save the Children. My best seller , ‘Four Potatoes and a Recipe’ has sold 10,000 copies and generated £50,000. The other 3 books have achieved about the same added up. I have a new book on the go which will contain 1,000 recipes featuring tomatoes and I’m starting to raise money now to get it into print in a year or 2.
The great thing is that if it costs say £1-50 to get each book published and we can sell it for a fiver, then we are tripling every pound that is raised.
So , please put your hand in your pocket for the various fund raisers I have planned. Together we can make difference.
