Announcement: Menu For Hope III


I'd like to put in a pledge to all my faithfull readers.

The tireless Pim is looking for eager participants to help raise money for a very good cause - United Nations World Food Programme.

In 2004 and 2005 Menu for Hope I and II helped raise substantial sums for the Tsunami victims in Southeast Asia and victims of the devastating earthquake in the Kashmir region of India and Pakistan. Last year the money raised by food bloggers for the earthquake victims with the Menu for Hope campaign amounted to more than US$ 17,000!

I would like to urge all my readers to help make this year a record year. Let us try and break the record from last year by pledging and donating for this cause.

All the details for those who wish to take an active part in the campaign by hosting a prize can be found here.

You can contact the hosts for your region:

US West Coast: Sam of Becks & Posh
US East Coast: Adam of The Amateur Gourmet
US (the rest): Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen
Canada: Jasmine of Cardamom Addict
Europe: David Lebovitz of Davidlebovitz.com
Latin America: Melissa de Leon of the Cooking Diva
Asia Pacific: Helen of Grab Your Fork

Those who cannot host a prize, do not feel guilty! You can play a huge part by bidding for one of the prizes and donating a bit of money. As I am informed, there are a few fantastic prizes up for grabs.

Of course I too will have a fantastic prize to offer all my readers. Are you curious? Come back on December 11 and you'll be able to discover what it is. Trust me, you will not want to miss this prize because I know a few of you have it on your wishlist!!!
