Raw Fu Secret Revealed- THANK YOU!!

First of all, let me just tell you that my hands are still shaking. I might be on a gratitude high until at least 2050! Now, let's get right to business.

Raw Fu members have probably seen the behind the scenes THREAD that has been bumping its way to the top of Raw Fu over the past few weeks. When the thread was first opened, I e-mailed Jane, just like the thread told me to do (good Bunny!), and got a polite response letting me know that I'd be getting more details about the behind the scenes action as we got closer to the start of the challenge.

I would see it bump to the top of the forum, and got more and more excited to find out the details. I kept trying to imagine what you guys were being so sneaky about. I thought you must be putting together a cookbook or were gathering up old raw food books to create a little Raw Fu Library. I HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS REALLY GOING ON!

Yesterday, I got an e-mail from Penni Shelton, and it had a link to this video on YouTube. (Try to keep your hands off of the screen. She is so gorgeous!)

And then, I cried for the rest of the day. I knew I wanted to make a special thank you video, but thought I'd probably need to call Steven Spielberg and get Brad Pitt to co-star if I wanted it to come close to being big enough or important enough to convey how I really feel about this amazing and completely humbling gift! I was still crying when I went to bed.

I got up this morning, and tried to pull it together enough to respond.

There is really no way that I can thank you enough. But every single person in this community is getting a giant hug the next time I see them. And maybe a little pinch on the tushie.

You have turned my life around. I am eternally grateful. And feel like the most blessed person on the planet today. I hope I can help facilitate making you feel the same way for the next 100 days. I'll try my best. And oh my gosh, I am going to make so many raw food cooking demos you guys are going to get sick of me!

Please let me know what I can do for YOU during this upcoming challenge. It is my pleasure to be here, and to blissfully serve.

And I'll be in CHAT tonight if you want to stop by and let me thank you personally!

I cried while watching your videos. I'm so happy for you, Bunny!!! You have inspired so many and it's wonderful that we can all come together (thanks to Jane's fabulous idea and Penni helping to organize it) to give back to you.

I love you, Beth!

Lots of love to you, always,

Every time you blend a smoothie,
think about the lives you have touched, who have touched you back.

Hi Bunny,
I'm happy for you.

But I'll be sorry to see the back of your ancient kitchen gadgets, which added to your charm. It was wonderful to finally discover a raw fooder who didn't have the latest super-expensive gadget - and what an inspiration.

Please don't forget the ancient gadgeters!
(I kinda wish the old gadgets will continue to feature in your vids, rather than the sparkly (expensive) new ones - my gadgets are like the ones you were using!)

Never the less, enjoy your gifts, and thanks for being so lovely and inspirational.

I'm so glad the gifts hit the mark! You ask what more you can do for us? I say you're already doing it - just continue to be you fabulous you :-)

Lots of love Antony xx

oh gosh, I cried too! Bunny, you're welcome. You've created an amazing community. Your honesty and openness with a bunch of strangers has turned into a whole lot of love and support. You deserve nothing less for all your work.
And the thank you video was wonderful!
Wow. We're in for 100 days of fun!

Bunny, I just joined the raw food challenge for the next 100 days (I think I joined it the proper way-shrug) and I am totally overwhelmed. Is there a quick guide for the non-computer saavy persons such as me-smile-to use when reviewing the message board and such?

Bunny, what you give you get back ten-fold... The Universe was paying attention sister!!! Enjoy your new gadgets!
