Menu for Hope & Food Blog Awards

12-Dec-2006
There are two big events going on in the food blogging world right at this moment! And even if you are not a blogger yourself you can get involved in both of them. And in fact, you should!     
 
The first event is the Menu for Hope, which if I ever get my act together at this time of year I should contribute to!  But I still can, as you can – just in a different way.
 
Think of this event as sort of a worldwide silent auction/raffle.  In this event, bloggers from around the world sponsor prizes and you can purchase tickets that allow you to put your name in the drawing for one or more prizes.  Tickets are $10 each and you can put all your tickets on one item or spread them across items.  (If you bought five, you could join the pool for up to five items.)
You can get all the nitty-gritty details on the donation instructions page.
 
This year’s event benefits the UN World Food Programme – a fitting agency for food bloggers!
 
There are some really great prizes from around the world.  Besides physical things such as cookbooks and food packs and cook’s tools, some of them are experiences – tours and meals, for instance.  I have my eye on a couple of those! 
 
So get yourself on over to Chez Pim’s site, check out the details and contribute!  It’s a great way to really get into the spirit of the season.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The second event is all about fun and recognition.  Over at the Well Fed Network (my other blog, The Spirit World is part of this network) the 3rd annual Food Blog Awards is in process.  This event is a community event and you, the readers, get to nominate those blogs you think should be recognized in several different categories.  In the first step, nominations are taken from at large.  Then a small panel of judges narrows down those big lists, and finally the lists are sent back to the community for voting.    
 
So head on over, take a look at the categories and nominate those blogs you think exemplify the characteristics for that category.  It’s your chance to get involved!
