2014 is here which means Phase 2 is a go! Sadly unlike Marvels Phase 2 we don't have an endless budget and the creative genius of Stan Lee and Joss Whedon, although we do have plans to reach out to their representatives. One thing we have that Marvel has is superheroes and we have them in abundance. 19 supplied us with recipes and 328 bought our book.
So what is Phase 2 you ask, well Phase 2 is us reaching out into the geek community to raise awareness of our project to help us continue to support Child's Play Charity. We want to take things we did last year and improve on them, to make them bigger, better and more fun for everyone.

We can very happily announce that we have a signed 1st edition of Neil Gaimans's latest book The Ocean at the End of the Lane available for auction.
Just as every penny of our book sales go directly to Child's Play Charity, the same goes for the auction, 100% of the final sales price goes to Child's Play Charity.
To be able to select Child's Play Charity as our preferred charity we have to use the US ebay site, which doesn't give us any of the shipping options available in the UK (where we are based). Due to this we have listed the shipping costs in the item description.
If you are successful in your bid, message us with your address and we'll send you an invoice with the final total to be paid (bid+shipping).
You may remember we listed this earlier in the year, it was won but the winner got in touch with us and said that as it was for charity, he felt it should raise more money and if re-listed around Christmas time would make a great present for someone.
Just click the ebay logo above to be taken to the auction

One year and 4 days ago the first ideas for All The Nomz were born. They say inspiration comes from the strangest of places so we shouldn't be shocked that all you see here came about because our friend Marian Call cooked carrots (amongst other things) for our very own Marian.
We have Storify-ed the birth of All The Nomz for you to have a read through. You should also have a read of Lee's post over at Nerdlush where he details how one tweet from Wil Wheaton changed his life and resulted in our creation.
That kinda means Wil's our Daddy, Marian's our Mommy and carrots were involved somehow. That right there is the beginning of some very disturbing fan art. Have at it Internet.

So what does this mean?
It means that dotted around our site (top banner of each page and in the Store) we have banner and products linked to ThinkGeek.com, when you click on then you'll be redirected to ThinkGeek's website where you can purchase ALL THE GEEKY STUFF and the tiny internet robots tell ThinkGeek you made a purchase because of us and we get 7% commission.
We don't want your stinkin money!
Okay that's a lie, we do, we do want your money and if you'd like to send us money to help with the running of the site and helping us with doing more books, competitions etc then do get in touch. However, we won't be keeping the commission from any purchase you make from ThinkGeek through us, we'll send that money to Child's Play.
