Menu for Hope III -- Get Your Giving On
OK, kids, here's the deal -- every year we food bloggers (and by that I mean world wide) join forces for good. The campaign is called menu for hope, and this is the first time I've had an actual prize to donate instead of just throwing some cash of my own at the cause.
Here's how it works. We raise some money for the United Nations World Food Programme by having you donate to the cause. Every $10 you donate gives you a raffle ticket to win one of the fabulous prizes AND --get this -- you get to choose which prizes you want most. Super fucking rad, right?
The prize I'm donating is dinner for two, with me, at my second home, Delfina. You can pick my brain for any restaurant knowledge you want to know whilst we dine, and I'll pick up the check to boot (an even easier feat for me considering the good folk at Delfina have agreed to subsidize part of the meal -- Have I mentioned how much I LOVE them?). I'll even wear something low cut. The prize code for this delicious offering is: UW17. To see some of the other fabulous prizes, you can go here, and for details about offerings from local food bloggers, go here.
Here's how you get your giving on:
- Go to the donation page at ( http://www.firstgiving.com/menuforhopeIII )
- Make a donation, each $10 will give you one raffle ticket toward a prize of your choice. Please specify which prize or prizes you'd like in the 'Personal Message' section in the donation form when confirming your donation. Do tell us how many tickets per prize, and please use the prize code -for example, a donation of $50 can be 2 tickets for UW01 and 3 for UW17.
- If your company matches your charity donation, please remember to check the box and fill in the information so we could claim the corporate match.
- Please also check the box to allow us to see your email address so that we could contact you in case you win. Your email address will not be shared with anyone.
- Check back on Chez Pim on January 15 when we announce the result of the raffle. (The drawing will be done electronically. Our friend the code wizard Derrick at Obsession with Food is responsible for the wicked application that will do the job.
