Kingsley resident Robyn Birkin, who runs Modern Day Missus, has joined more than 40 women in creating From Our Kitchen to Yours.

Money from sales of the e-cookbook will be donated to the Luke Batty Foundation.

“Being a blogger and being inside the health and wellness sphere, it’s all about wanting to help people,” Mrs Birkin said.

“Stories like Rosie Batty’s are just everywhere at the moment, it’s really sad.”

Mrs Birkin said the group wanted to provide further support to domestic violence victims so is running donation drives around the country.

“We found the Luke Batty Foundation was a good fit but it’s still in its infancy,” she said.

“We wanted to provide immediate and on-the-ground support to refuges and shelters.”

Mrs Birkin will be collecting donations for a local refuge at Cafe Elixir in Wanneroo from 8am to 10am this Saturday.

Items include tinned vegetables, long life milk, tea, coffee, dried pasta, baby food, dishwashing detergent and laundry powder.

“I’ve become really passionate about the cause,” she said. “Being among these women is quite an amazing thing.”

The e-cookbook costs $19.95 and will be available from Saturday.
