This year I’ve been tapped to be the European host for Menu for Hope 6, an annual event to raise money for the UN World Food Programme’s Purchase for Progess campaign.
The auction will go live on December 14th, with participants from all over the globe, ending on December 25th. Prizes will included signed books by the authors, culinary tours and cooking classes, wine tastings, and lots of surprises!
You can read more about the event and the charity at Chez Pim.
If you live in Europe or the United Kingdom and if you are a food blogger, or have a food or travel-related business and would like to participate as a donor, we’d love to have you! Entries are due on December 10th.
Latecomers are welcome but must donate €50 to the auction…and host the auction next year ; )
More details will be announced about bidding on prizes on the first day of the auction, but to participate as a donor…
1. You should have a prize with a value of at least €50/$50 to donate and be willing to pay for global shipping, if possible.
2. Be able to supply a 75×75 thumbnail and 200×200 px photo or logo.
3. Post about your prize during the auction period.
4. Make contact with the winner in January, when the results are announced, to make delivery arrangements.
If you offer a service, such as a wine-tasting or tour, you should specify in your post any dates of availability and expiration period.
If you would like to participate, leave a comment with a working e-mail address (which will not be public) and your URL, if relevant, and details will be send to you.
