CA$ 222


The Kraken is a legendary giant sea monster. For parents, the Kraken is the hungry child who demands to be fed immediately or else the world will end!

People say that it takes a village to raise a child. In this age of Nuclear families, sadly, this is not a true fact anymore. As a new parent, I find myself feeling very alone when facing the Kraken in our household!

A Global Collaboration Project

This project is an opportunity for the all generations of parents to share their best recipes and advice on raising children. 

The idea is that we will all pitch in and at the end we will have a great book of knowledge about what to feed our Krakens!

How Will This Work?

  • Pledge to become a Parent Savior or Super Parent Savior
  • At the end of the campaign, a recipe template will be sent to you to collect your recipe and parenting advice
  • After everyone sends in their recipe, an e-book will be created and distributed to supporters

What Are The Categories of Recipes?

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
  • Snacks
  • Extraordinary Circumstances (Teething, Illness, etc)

What Will The E-Book Look Like?

Here are a few sample pages and the template for recipes:


Customized template for $30 pledges

Recipe Template Information:

  • Recipe Name
  • Picture of recipe
  • Ingredients
  • Instructions 
  • Your Name (just first name ok), Story & Parenting Tip in 2 sentences!

  • Potential Allergens

What Will The Money Be Used For?

All funds raised will go towards book production - editing, formatting, graphics work and distribution.

What About Parents Who Just Want A Copy?

At the end of the project, this book will be available for sale via Dark Helix Press for $2-5 USD (dependent on number of recipes received) with proceeds going to The Hospital For Sick Children, a world class children's hospital located in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Risks and challenges

Obstacles - We might only get one or two supporters! If that's the case this project isn't going to go anywhere!

Potential Delays - Life happens sometimes. If there are any delays, everyone will be notified of the new release date.

Production Challenge – People will be given a due date for their recipe. I’ll send out two reminders prior to the recipe being due, then a final reminder after the due date. If they do not send in the recipe after the third reminder, their recipe may not make it into the book.
