Support a Good Cause

Started by food blogger Chez Pim in 2004 as a response to the devastating Tsunamis in Southeast Asia, Menu for Hope is now in its 6th year. The campaign brings together food bloggers from all over the world to put together amazing food and wine related raffle items. The proceeds from the fundraising campaign go to support the UN World Food Programme.

You can participate by donating $10 to earn a virtual ticket that allows you to bid on an item of your choice. There are so many great items to choose from that you will probably find yourself donating $10 several times over for a chance to win some amazing raffle items. But don't worry, it's all going to an amazing cause.
Wondering how to get started?

Visit Chez Pim's blog for a full list of raffle items. You can also visit Alder Yarrow's Vinography for a list of great wine-related items.
