Hope on the horizon

Posted by Anita on 11.30.09 5:16 PM

(c)2009 AEC **all rights reserved**We’re in the initial planning stages of Menu for Hope, the annual food bloggers’ charity raffle that benefits the World Food Programme. If you’re a blogger, check out Pim’s page on how to get in on the fun.

But whether or not you have your own blog, I could use your help: What kind of prize would you like to see offered here on Married …with dinner?

In the past, our prizes have covered a lot of bases, from “Best of the Ferry Building” local food baskets, a set of Drink of the Week cocktail notecards, and even a custom mixology service.

The food baskets have been the most popular, year to year, but they’re a pain to shop for, and a hassle to ship. And relative to the prizes from other blogs, they’ve never done all that well. I’m game to do the goody basket again, if that’s what you all really love, but I can’t help but wonder what other treats might entice you to open your wallet for a good cause. Books? Gift cards? Something creative? Something homemade?

Tell me.

How about gift cards to Foodzie.com, Earthy.com, TSP Spices, Williams-Sonoma, Sur la Table, Scharffen Berger Chocolate, Dean & Deluca, or even King Arthur Flour. Hopefully you could get them to donate a gift card in exchange for the P.R. I’m sure there are many more “foodie” online stores that could be approached, too. Happy Holidays!

I don’t live too far from MWD HQ, so I’d be just as interested in a gift basket as anything.
However, something made at MWD HQ would be even more appealing than a gift basket that is full of purchased local items. Perhaps you could augment a local selection with a few selections from your kitchen.
Now that I’ve weighed in, you *know* I’ll be buying raffle tix.

Something homemade for sure! Or something for locals…like an in-person farmers market trip/ cooking class / photo tip session or something? Not sure if it fits the guidelines, but I’d bid on that for sure :)
