The food blogging community is a powerful place for countless reasons—its talent, creativity, humor, originality, and most profoundly, its ability to bind together both in times of triumph and in moments of despair. And two weeks ago, the community was rocked upon learning that one of its prominent members, Jennifer Perillo, lost her husband to a sudden heart attack.
Out of an abundance of support and love, fellow food bloggers Shauna Ahern of Gluten-Free Girl and Maggy Keet of ThreeManyCooks launched the #AFundForJennie campaign to benefit Jennifer and her two young daughters. The fundraising effort is being organized through a new nonprofit organization, Bloggers Without Borders, which was created by Maggy, Erika Pineda-Ghanny, and Aimée Wimbush Bourque, with the goal of using our “combined voices to help bloggers in need and the people in their community.”
