It is the season of giving,the season of love and of joy for our fellow man.
Pim, continuing the tradition started last year, has organized Menu for Hope II. Food Bloggers world wide are participating to raise money for charity. We are raising money for Unicef. The funds will be earmarked for the earthquake victims in Northern India and Pakistan.
How are we going to accomplish this? Through an online raffle drawing. Several food bloggers (myself included) have provided various gifts and prizes packages. Me? I have donated two Italian cookbooks by Marcella Hazan.
Each $5 donated will give you one chance (or one virtual raffle ticket) to wine a prize of your choosing. All you need to do to bid on item is state in the ‘comment’ section of your donation form which prize you would like to be drawn for.
You can also donate more than $5 of course, each $5 will give you one chance at one prize. (Yes, you are allowed to specify more than one gifts if you donate more than $5.)
No money will go through our hands. Just Giving will do the collection and forward all the money raised directly to Unicef.
Over there in the right colum is a graphic that will take you directly to the Just Giving site. Then give what you can.
