So how about a great cause for the holidays and one that can also win you fabulous prizes. Enter the Menu For Hope that is currently in its fourth year, after it was started to raise money for the tragedy surrounding the Tsunamis in 2004. The Menu For Hope was created by Pim of Chez Pim, a food blogger who wanted a way to help the victims of the tragic tsunamis that devastated Southeast Asia 5 years ago. So in an amazing effort she partnered with the UN World Food Programme to help feed the hungry. The campaign invites food and wine bloggers from around the blogosphere to contribute prizes that are given away as raffles to individuals who donate money. Then the word is spread, and YOU can go to the Menu For Hope website to make your donation and put your name in the hat for a specific prize that has been contributed.
This is a great cause that unfortunately I have just heard about for the first time that last year raised over $60,000. Check out Alder at Vinography who is “hosting” the event this year for a list of prizes and information on how to make your donation December 10th through the 21st.
Thanks for reading.
