Karen Hamilton of Tiny Bites has added her blog to the global Menu for Hope campaign, helping give hope and education to children worldwide while educating us all (and offering up prizes to boot).
Menu for Hope has been organized for the past 5 years by the legendary Chez Pim, with proceeds going to the United Nationâ€™s World Food Program. This year, Menu for Hope targets the development of a school food program in Lesotho, Africa. There is also hope that whatever is raised in 2008 meets or exceeds last yearâ€™s global collection of $90,000.
When you donate $10 to this cause you will get a raffle ticket and have the chance to win $600 in prizes donated by other local food sites and businesses such as Social Bites, Farmstead Wines, and Rouxbe.
To be eligible for the prizes you need to be in Canada or the USA, however there are some international prizes available from Chez Pim, Hooked on Heat, and the Abstract Gourment.
Choose your prize at Chez Pim, make your donation (clarifying which prize you’d like to be in the running for in the ‘personal message’ section). There are some specifics available on TinyBites in case you’d like to purchase more than one ticket/make a larger donation.
