I'd like to drop another note to invite participation to my Menu for Hope II. We are raising money to support the victims of the earthquake in northern India and Pakistan.
You can read more about it in my previous Foodblogscool posting here. Basically, I'm asking food bloggers to offer up a gift for your readers to raffle. Each $5 donation will get a virtual raffle ticket. The donor can specify which gift they want. Each blogger will only be responsible for coming up with the gift, and the shipping cost to send that gift to the winner. Oh, right, and for a blog post about their gift, I will run the roundup of everything on offer on our Menu for Hope II next Monday.
I've already got a lot of bloggers who agreed to participate, but most of them are of the usual suspects variety, which is a good thing, mind you. Who wouldn’t want to be in the company of Clotilde, Adam, David, Alder, Heidi, Sam, Kate, Amy, to name but a few? But I'd really like to include a lot more of you whom I don’t' normally have an opportunity to play with. The more the merrier, no? And it's also for a very good cause.
Don't be afraid that you might not have anything fancy enough to offer. I've got pledged gifts ranging from a jar of home-made jam, to cookbooks old and new, to a fancy basket of goodies solicited from gourmet shops --and even to a chance to 'own' your very own sheep (guess who that's from). Anything you think your readers wouldn't mind giving just $5 for a chance to win it would be enough.
Please email me, email@example.com, or leave a comment here to let me know you'd like to participate. And tell your blogging friends! As I said, the more the merrier! Hopefully we could raise a good amount of money for this very worthy cause.
Thanks so much,
