A Menu for Hope II

The author of one of my favorite food blogs, Pim of Chez Pim, has organized an online food-blogging charity event to raise funds for the victims of recent earthquakes in Pakistan and Kashmir. It's important that aid from the international community continue and these victims are not forgotten, especially in the light of recent victims of the Southeast Asian Tsumanis and the US hurricanes.

The donations are going to be funneled to Unicef and will be collected in the form of an online raffle - just donate $5 for a chance to win any one of a list of prizes from food bloggers including a $200 gift certificate to Manresa in Los Gatos, CA from Pim herself and a personalized food tour of Paris from Louisa of Movable Feast.

As a tribute to my newly found love of the ultra-thinly-sliced and waffle-cut potatoes courtesy of my new mandoline, given to me by my buddy Mike on my birthday, I'm offering up a brand new Benriner Kanekichi Slicer for the auction.

Go donate $5 for your chance to win an awesome prize!

From Chez Pim:

Recipe to participate:
1. Find the gift you would like on our menu.
2. Go to A Menu for Hope II donation page and donate $5 or whatever sum you could spare.
3. Tell us in the comment section of your donation form which gift(s) you would like have. Each $5 donation will give you one chance at winning the prize of your choice. (Yes, if you donate more than $5, you are allowed to specify more than one prize.)
4. That's it!

Our campaign will end on December 23rd, and the winners will be announced and the prizes sent to corresponding winners after January 1st 2006.
