Yes, if you are a compulsive fblog reader like me, you may find this oh-so-familiar, even to the point of predictable. But if you still do not know about this annual charity campaign, read on.
"A Menu of Hope" started 3 years ago, by the notable fblogger Chez Pim. This year, the beneficiary of all the donations is the United Nation World Food Programme.
Details on how this charity event works can be found at her site. Basically, what we can do is to donate a certain amount of money in exchange for raffle tickets. You may then allocate the number of raffle tickets towards a prize, all of which are sponsored by restaurants and bloggers.
Because of the scale of this project, there are regional hosts for better management. Asia Pacific is hosted by Helen from Grab Your Fork. Do check out her site for more details on the programme and prizes.
Having gone on my first missions trip to Cambodia a few months ago, I feel strongly about helping the less fortunate, especially the children, who would be the pillars of the world tomorrow. Cliche, but I agree. It is not by choice they are born poor and so, please give them a chance to live life to the fullest. Make yours a special Christmas offering.
Here is the link to make a donation today. I urge you to give with a willing heart. If you do win a prize, that will be a bonus! Thank you and wish you good luck.
