MyDish personalised recipe calendar launched to help Great Ormond Street Hospital

A new personalised recipe calendar has been created by the recipe sharing website MyDish to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

[USPRwire, Fri Oct 15 2010] Great Ormond Street Hospital has announced the launch of a new personalised recipe calendar which has been created by the founder of MyDish to help raise funds for the hospital.

Inspired by her sonís treatment at Great Ormond Street Hospital, Carol Savage, founder of and a 'Dragon's Den' success story, is using her business know-how to launch the online recipe calendar.

The new calendar allows purchasers to choose their own favourite recipe for each month, as well as being able to add their own photos and include all those special dates they donít want to forget.

Carol Savage decided to make the calendar following her own family's personal experience with the charity. Carol's oldest son Oliver was admitted to Great Ormond Street Hospital five years ago with a rare kidney disease. It was his fundraising idea to use the tools on MyDish to help benefit the childrens charity which is close to his heart.

Carol commented: "We're asking everyone, grannies, granddads, mums, dads and children to get involved so we can raise much needed funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital with our personalized recipe calendar, a fabulous and unique Christmas present."

Food lovers' recipe sharing website allows visitors to search easy homemade recipes, store all their favourite recipes into one space, share treasured recipes with family and friends (connecting to them directly from a personal space).

£5 from every calendar sold will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Those who wish to order and personalise their own calendar can visit the MyDish website MyDish website.
