NEWS: A menu for hope

I really like the Chez Pim blog. It is a food blog, not a green blog, but occasionally it crosses into green territory. Overall has awesome content, great food pictures (mmmmmm) and a sumptuous design. Recommed you check it out.

Occasionally something appears on Chez Pim that crosses my little green radar and I just think: I have to spotlight that.

Remember the Hungry Planet book post we did - heard about it from Chez Pim.

And now there is another post I feel compelled to support.

Chez Pim started something a year ago called the Menu for Hope where she and other food bloggers raise money at Christmas time for a good cause and in return every donation above $5 gets a ticket in the raffle.

And boy, what a raffle! The raffle has loads of great food prizes, seriously, never seen anything like it. You gotta see it to believe it. There must be 40 prizes there. City Hippy is hoping to donate a box of Clipper Organic tea bags, a Packet of Clipper Organic Fairtrade Ground Coffee and a jar of Clipper Organic Hot Chocolate. What fun!

This year the money raised will be going to support the victims of the devastating earthquake in the Kashmir region of India and Pakistan.

This is so worth your time so please do go and check it out @ A Menu For Hope

PLUS: Chez Pim has been shortlisted for World's Best Urban Food Blog in The Urbs aka The 2005 Urban Blogging Awards - She got my vote. Wanna vote for her? Click here.
