If you’ve checked out our Charity of the Month feature, then you know this month’s charity is CoachArt. We’re so excited to be working with CoachArt, and if you haven’t already seen it, CoachArt clients will be attending our Baking Around the World launch party!! Even better – we’ll be donating 10% of all sales made from books at the party to the organization.
