Menu for Hope II

We are very pleased to announce that Pim has invited us to participate in the second Menu for Hope. The idea is very simple and the cause is very good. On Pim's site, you will find a list of participating bloggers, each of whom has donated a gift to the cause. For five dollars donated to the UNICEF relief fund for the disaster in Pakistan and Northern India (remember that earthquake?) you recieve a raffle ticket for one of the prizes. There is a comments section in the donation process where you can indicate which prize you would like should you be so lucky as to win one. Simple.

Here at TooManyChefs we are donating a basket of goodies including, but not necessarily limited to: speciality salt, foie gras, snails and any other fun French ingredients I can fit in the box. As an added bonus, we are throwing in a free copy of David Lebovitz's book on Chocolate, which we are hoping to induce him to sign.

So, in a twist on the Great Chicago Tradition, Give Early and Give Often. I could argue that it is the season for giving, but in fact charity knows no season. Just donate.

UPDATE: As we always knew, the readers of our blogs are extremely generous. 24 hours after the launch of Menu for Hope II, we have raised over $2000 dollars. I also forgot to extend our sincere and deep thanks to Pim for organizing this event!

I understand A Menu for Hope (I donated 50 bux) is a serious matter, the fact that it shows up next to the MSNBC ad for porn is just too much to pass up. I did a screen capture for posterity.

I almost did the same thing. I guess that's what happens when the ads are on "random". :)

Funny, I saw that ad on the Amateur Gourmet site first and thought "Goodness his standards are low..." WHOOPS!!

Do we need to reiterate that advertising on our site does not constitute endorsement of the product by TMC??
