We Interrupt This Blog for a Special Holiday Fundraiser


Hannah our loyal Bittersweet Blogger is a bit bogged down with her very first round of college finals this week, and has felt dreadful about not having wonderful sweets and crafts to share with her readers. Luckily, there is something that I wanted to share with everyone this week to fill in the posting void, and Hannah has graciously allowed me to take the spotlight for a quick post.





For two weeks in December, Chez Pim is uniting food bloggers for the Menu for Hope, a fund raiser for the UN World Food Programme. Each year, food bloggers from all over the world join forces to host the Menu for Hope online raffle, offering an array of delectable culinary prizes. In 2006, Menu for Hope raised US $60,925.12 to help feed the hungry, and I am sure that they would like to do even better this year.



Hannah, the crafter behind Bittersweet, is a “starving” college student (literally, vegan dorm food is hard to come by), so she is unable to give a large monetary donation. However, what she can offer is her wonderful work. Hannah has generously donated an autographed copy of her new cookbook, My Sweet Vegan, as a raffle prize for the Menu for Hope. Did I mention how positively gorgeous My Sweet Vegan is? Hannah is far too modest and shy to say it, so I felt the need to tell everyone.



Getting back on topic, you can help the Menu for Hope fund raiser by donating just ten dollars U.S. For every US$10 donation, you will receive a virtual raffle ticket toward a prize of your choice. Beyond Hannah’s great cookbook, there are scores of wonderful prizes to assign to your raffle tickets.


Thank you for allowing me a moment to share this wonderful event. Good luck with your finals Hannah!
