I just thought of this and want to know if it is tacky.?
My coworkers are throwing me a baby shower in a few weeks. We haven't been matched yet, but we are optimistic and know that once it happens I will be out of work for several months. My coworkers know we are having to buy a lot of stuff and wanted to space out my showers. Our families will probably be throwing showers in their respective states after baby arrives.
Okay, the cookbook. I work with a lot of people in our company so my assistant has invited about 70 people and has asked them to cook something. Our folks love to cook. At Xmas we had a potluck party and all the ladies were talking about how we should put together a work cookbook with the recipes from the dishes cooked. This got me thinking.
When the official invites are sent out, what if we asked each person to bring in a copy of their recipe with their dish. I could collect them all and then make cookbooks and sell them. Would that be tacky for me to profit? If I told them ahead of time what I was doing to help with adoption costs, would that be less tacky?
