Dylan's Second Recipe Book
Back in 2013, aged just 7, Dylan Allman from Pembrokeshire became the youngest person in the UK to use crowdfunding to publish a recipe book, raising funds for a children’s charity in the process. Now, as he approaches his tenth birthday, Dylan has decided the time is right to launch his second recipe book, compiled of recipes from around the world, to raise funds for Action Against Hunger.
“I'm really excited" he said "My friends are helping me get in touch with children across the world, from countries as far away as Australia and South Africa, so it’s really interesting to see the different kind of recipes coming through.”
Help children know the joy of food
When asked why proceeds of book sales are going to Action Against Hunger, Dylan replied: “I was so shocked to learn that across the world there are more 52 million children under the age of five suffering from malnutrition. It just doesn’t seem right. I want to help make a difference and help children know the joy of food”.
In order to produce his book Dylan has set up a crowdfunding page asking for people to invest in his idea so that he has enough funds to create 100 books and meet his ambitious aim of raising £1,000 for Action Against Hunger's work. On top of this Dylan hopes that the impact of his recipe book will go beyond funds raised: "I want to raise awareness of just how many young children and people go hungry every day due to lack of food and to inspire other people to help make a difference too."
