Baking a Lemon Pie for Jaime

Yesterday Coco (founder of Milagro School Peru, our partner for the next collection) invited us to make a Lemon Pie for Jaime. For those of you who haven't followed Jaime's story, he has cystic fibrosis and is permanently connected to an oxygen tank in order to stay alive. We have followed Jaime's struggle closely and were so happy to finally meet this creative and joyful 15 year old boy. Even though he is fragile, coughs permanently to keep the fluid out of his lungs and suffers from regular headaches he brightened up everyones day with his cheeky jokes and smile. Coco has started a fund to provide Jaime with the care that he needs to stay alive. This fund is now very low and his days are limited once again. If you would like to find out more about Jaime and even make a donation go to It costs under 10€ a day (a couple of coffees in most countries these days) for the priceless joy of life. Please check it out and spread the word.
