Le Creuset Holiday Give-Away!

As holiday thanks readers, through the generosity of Le Creuset, I’m giving away a six piece set of classic French cookware in cherry red. This colorful set goes from oven to table effortlessly and includes a large 5 1/2-quart round covered French oven, a 2 1/4-quart covered saucier, a 10-inch square skillet grill, and an 8- x 11-inch rectangular roasting dish.

This time of year traditionally food bloggers get together to raise money for charity.

So I’d like to offer these charities up as places where you can give this holiday season. No donation is required to enter for a chance to get this fantastic set of cookware. But just the other day, I was watching television on the devastation in many parts of the world, and was sitting in my heated apartment with a refrigerator full of food, and realized how fortunate I am.

It’s easy to forget or to click away to something more entertaining when we see a natural disaster or a face filled with misery. But instead I sat down at my desk and sent a donation to Doctors Without Borders, an international aid organization. It took just a few minutes and no matter how much you can contribute, any amount would be greatly appreciated.


Five charities that I would like to point out that could use help this year:

Doctors Without Borders: This organization provides urgent medical care to people in areas struck by emergencies.

Share Our Strength: Carol at Alinea at Home is starting her annual campaign for Share Our Strength to help feel hungry kids.

101 Cookbooks Kiva Group: This organization helps distribute loans to small businesses in underdeveloped countries and you can loan money to help a specific individual begin a new life.

Stoves for Darfur: This is an amazing initiative started by a young American teenager to provide low-cost stoves for women who normally gather wood, walking at great lengths and often getting assaulted (or worse), just trying to feed themselves and their families.

The Smile Train: The Smile Train provides free surgical procedures to children to fix cleft palates, which gives kids around the world a reason to smile.

Although a donation isn’t required for a chance to win this fantastic set of Le Creuset cookware for your kitchen, please do consider helping out one of these charities if you possibly can this holiday season.


NOTE: The give-away has ended (see #1, below) and comments have been closed. The winner will be notified by e-mail on Christmas Day. Thanks to everyone who participated and hope you all have a terrific holiday! -dl

To Enter

1. Simply leave a comment below. When you leave a comment, please include your correct e-mail address in the field that asks for it. It will not be visible to the public there, so do not leave it in the actual comment area.

I will close comments promptly on December 24, 2010 at noon Paris time, and the person who will receive this set of cookware will be chosen by a random number generator, then contacted by e-mail on Christmas Day. Winner must respond by December 31, 2010 noon Paris time, or forfeit the cookware. No exceptions.

2. Le Creuset can only ship this set to a winner in the United States due to customs and other restrictions. (If you want to gripe about things available in the states that aren’t available elsewhere, the line begins here…) Shipping is included to all 50 states although winner is responsible for any local taxes or charges levied, if applicable.

If you live abroad and you wish to bid, you can do so only if you: 1) Have a mailing address in the US that accepts parcels, or 2) Use a mail and parcel forwarding service. If you choose to use one, you will be responsible for any and all fees, including customs, duties, and taxes that may be levied. I have no experience using one but you can find one by searching Google, using the search words “International Forward Shipping.”

3. Only one entry per person. Multiple entries will all be disqualified and you will get a lump of coal in your Christmas stocking. (Or worse.) When you enter, you agree to the delivery terms listed above. No purchase required.

4. Bonne chance! (Good luck!)

    Oh my God, it would be so amazing to win. I want nothing more than a Le Creuset French oven.

    Also, please consider adding Charity: Water to your list of organization. I do believe very firmly in their cause.

    Happy holidays, David; thanks for all you do, and for the reminder about good charities that need our support.

  • December 20, 2010 12:07pm

    This will make someone very happy this Christmas! We are fortunate indeed to not only have enough food to eat, but have such nice kitchen equipment to cook it in.

  • December 20, 2010 12:08pm

    I suppose I can enter and have the things sent to a friend in the US?
    Stoves for Darfur is a great idea.

    I vaguely knew someone who worked for Drs w/o borders. He was truly a hero. I never realized how dangerous their jobs were until I spoke with him. I always donate to them but am glad you are bringing their charity & giving it more attention with your wide readership.

  • December 20, 2010 12:17pm

    Thanks for coordinating this, David!

    Also, just got The Perfect Scoop for my bday to go along with my new fancy Cuisinart ice scream machine. I squealed; it’s the truth…

  • December 20, 2010 12:19pm

    I’m in the UK but am entering on behalf of my family in the US, who love to cook but are in dire need of better tools. And on that note, thanks for calling our attention to the people who are in need of a lot more than cookware – you have a lot of readers, many of whom I’m sure will donate after reading this post. Good one. Tis the season!

  • Alyssa

    Thanks for the reminder about these great organizations and for the giveaway. Happy Holidays and New Year!

  • December 20, 2010 12:29pm

    Absolutely adore Le Creuset and all my pieces are in this cherry red! Truly a wonderful gesture to think of those who are in need, especially at this time of year when we are spoiling ourselves and loved ones…. We support the wonderful people at lowernine.org where our son has been volunteering his time, energy and passion for almost a year now. They are rebuilding homes in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans that were destroyed by Katrina. Thanks to this great group, many people will be spending the holidays back in their own homes.

    Doctors Without Borders is my absolute favorite charity. The majority of donations go to actual work in the field (not overhead) which makes so much more of a difference. Thank you for reminding everyone of their great work!

    Doctors Without Borders – what a fantastic organization!

  • December 20, 2010 12:40pm

    Stoves for Darfur is amazing. It’s so great to see that issue being addressed. And I would love some Le Creuset. It would go so well with the 2x4s and plywood that currently comprise my kitchen.

    And we bought Perfect Scoop for our son last year. It has truly been one of the best (and tastiest) investments we’ve made in a while.

    wow!!!! that would be awesome!! i was just looking into different charity options this holiday season, you reminded me of some fantastic ones.
    fingers crossed!

  • December 20, 2010 12:41pm

    I would LOVE to own a creuset! I’ll look into those charities as well.

  • December 20, 2010 12:41pm

    I am a supporter of Doctors Without Borders. In a world where humanitarian worker are becoming more and more targeted by insurgents and rebels, they are true heros and the work they do is nothing short of heroic. Thanks for including them.

  • Lindsey

    While I did not donate to the causes you mentioned in your post, this year I donated to a rugby program for disadvantaged boys in New York City, National Public Radio because I love it, Project ALS because a dear friends is suffering from this terrible disease, and a local environmental NGO I work with and adore in South India!

    And I am definitely throwing in the towel for this contest! :)

  • Rachel
    December 20, 2010 12:47pm

    I like to commit to one charity. Mine is Kiva.org. I give them money and they do micro loans around the world. When the money comes back, I re-give and it adds up over time.

    Red is my favorite kitchen color so I am happy to enter your generous drawing.

    Happy Holidays!

    Some friends of mine had a similar idea for their wedding gift list. Since they felt so fortunate, their wish list was actually a list of institutions. Then the guests would just tell them which one they helped.
    Thanks for the suggestions. But let’s not forget those smaller local institutions!

    Beautiful idea and a really interesting post. I wasn’t familiar with the Kiva group. Have a happy holiday.

    Would love to give this as a present to a friend who spends tremendous time and effort working with frontier markets (high risk emerging markets). He deserves a thank you this Xmas.

    Oooh merry cherry red!

    Please place us on the Le Creuset list! We have been such good kids this year and would be so very thrilled to give them a happy little home in our hungry little kitchen!

    Thank you for another delicious year full of flavor and inspiration, David. We are huge fans of your blog, the Kiva Group and the Smile Train.

    Merci pour tout …

    Joyeux Noël!

    We love Kiva – and this year especially we are also giving to the area foodbanks and homeless shelters – so many children are in need.

    Absolutely love your blog and of course le creuset!
    I am giving donations to the Heifer Organization as gifs this season. You can select the amount and the animal you want to give and a family/person in need will receive it to help them make a living.. For example a chicken to provide eggs to sell and eat.. Or a cow for milk etc.
