Menu for Hope III

I’m a little bit late but it's never too late to do a good thing: Whoever out there is paying attention to my food blog right now should also pay some attention to this year's MENU FOR HOPE.

The well-known food blogger Pim from Chez Pim is organizing this highly successful online fund raising event - already the third year in a row. Last year, food bloggers managed to canvass more than 17,000 US-Dollars. This year, it will probably be even more - after all it's for the World Food Program of the United Nations.

But the best is yet to come: While donating money you will automatically purchase tickets for the most amazing raffle you can think of. Food bloggers from all over the world have donated an incredible range of prizes: professional kitchen equipment, vouchers for high-end dining experiences, cookbooks and food magazine subscriptions, and even gourmet tours with celebrity chefs!

So hurry up, the fund raising ends on the 22nd of December. With the third day just about to start, we've already raised more than 8,000 US-Dollars! Pim will announce the raffle winners on 15th of January - so stay tuned!

And that's how you can participate:
  1. Go to the donation page
  2. Make your donation. Each US$10 will earn you a raffle ticket towards your preferred prize. Please specify the unique prize code in the personal message section of your donation confirmation and specify the numbers of tickets for each prize. For example, if you donate US$50, you could say 3 x EU09 and 2 x AP25.
  3. For US donors, if your company matches your charity donation, please remember to check the box and fill in the information so we may claim the corporate match.
  4. And check the box to allow your email address to be seen. In case you win, you will be contacted by email.
Not every prize - but quite a few - can be shipped anywhere in the world. Please check out the prizes in your region of the world:

US West Coast: Becks and Posh
US East Coast: The Amateur Gourmet
US (the rest): Kalyn's Kitchen
Canada: Cardamom Addict
Europe and UK:
Asia Pacific/Australia/New Zealand: Grab Your Fork

The prize drawing will be done electronically. Derrick at Obsession with Food is responsible for this tricky business.

I wish you good luck!
