Menu for Hope is a charity fundraiser supported by food and wine bloggers worldwide. It was started by Pim Techamuanvivit who blogs at Chez Pim
and is now in its 5th year. Last year Menu for Hope raised over $90,000 for a school lunch program in Lesotho. Find out more about the Menu for Hope at Chez Pim
To help the cause, all you need to do is buy a $10 raffle ticket at First Giving - Menu for Hope
and enter the prize code for prize you would like to win. The raffle runs between now and Christmas - please see below for more detailed instructions.
Here's the prize we've donated (that you can bid on - hint, hint):
Giant Wine Map of California
California is the second in our series of wine maps. The regular retail size of this map is 24 x 36 inches, however, this one will be custom printed at a giant 4 feet wide by 6 feet tall. We're finishing the artwork right now, so be the first on your block (actually on the entire planet) to have a Giant Wine Map of California. To get a better idea of the style and quality, please take a look at our map of the Iberian Peninsula. The map of California will be just as obsessively accurate, up to date and - all importantly - suitable for framing (if you can find a frame that large). This item can only be delivered to US addresses. Estimated Value: $400. Prize Code:WB12

It's a tough year financially for so many people - especially the very poor - so if you can give please do.
