A Menu for Hope Starts Today, and You Could Win Free Admission to BlogHer '10!

BlogHer Original Post

Once again it's time for Menu for Hope, the annual blogging fundraiser sponsored by Chez Pim and supported by bloggers around the world. Not only is Menu for Hope a lot of fun, it raises money for a very good cause as well, with funds this year once again going to the United Nations World Food Program.


If you participate in Menu for Hope by bidding on items that have been donated by bloggers, you'll be helping raise money to support efforts to feed people around the world. And besides the pleasure of knowing you're a part of that wonderful effort, you might win a prize! You could even win free admission to BlogHer's summer conference, how cool would that be?

Again this year the founders of BlogHer are donating free admission to the annual BlogHer summer conference as a bid item for Menu for Hope.

(BlogHer '10 will be held in New York, August 6 - 7, 2010. The conference pass includes admission to all conference sessions and parties, as well as breakfasts and lunches that are part of the conference agenda. It does not include airfare, hotel accommodations, or other meals. The BlogHer conference is open to women or men.)
