Please support Direct Relief by purchasing the digital version of The Spicy Gourmet Recipe Book.
As the owner of a small business in California, I’ve had the opportunity to support several nonprofits in the area. None of the nonprofits has impressed me more than Direct Relief, located in Santa Barbara, California. They are an organization that provides relief wherever it is needed most across the globe. I’ve personally had the privilege to meet many of the staff and volunteers of this organization, and from our conversations, it is obvious that they take their responsibility very seriously. These are people who extend their help with committed compassion and respond quickly when a disaster occurs. I consider it a privilege to support their work and to have The Spicy Gourmet Associated with this phenomenal organization.
