Menu for Hope

Menu for Hope

For the fourth year, the lovely Pim of Chez Pim has organized the campaign for Menu for Hope. This incredible event aids the UN World Food Programme, and last year raised over $60,000. Food bloggers from all over contribute items that are then entered into a raffle. For each $10 you contribute, you can get a virtual raffle ticket for a prize. So, I’ve been thinking what BoB could do to help.

Pecan Pie Cheesecake

My offering is cheesecake. As many of you know, I am a big fan of cheesecakes and love to bake them for just about any occasion. So, to those of you in the U.S., I will personally make for you any cheesecake that has appeared here on BoB. With the raffle ending on December 21, this delectable dessert would be a great addition to your holiday festivities.

If you’re not interested, or even if you are, please check out the other offerings from generous food bloggers. I’ve got my eye on a couple of things already.

Many thanks not only to Pim, but to Kalyn who is hosting the central U.S. region. You can see those items on her blog, Kalyn’s Kitchen.

    This is such a worthy cause. I didn’t win anything last year, but you can bet your cheesecake will be one thing I’m eyeing this year :)
