I'm proud to help Menu for Hope this year, like last year. Menu for Hope is an annual fundraiser hosted by Pim. Last year, Menu for Hope raised nearly $100K to help the UN World Food Program feed the hungry. Yes you read it correctly $100K :-) I know this year we the tough and struggling economy it will be tough to raise money for good causes, but with all YOUR help we can do it!
How it works:Each December, food bloggers from all over the world join the campaign by offering a food-related prizes for the Menu for Hope raffle. For every $10 donated, you earn one virtual raffle ticket to bid on a prize of their choice. At the end of the two-week campaign, the raffle tickets are drawn and the results announced on Chez Pim.

The campaign is divide between region. For us, here in Europe, the hostess is Sara from Ms Adventures in Italy . Check out other European prizes here.
