Thanks a lot! Menu for Hope 6

Thanks to all of you who donated to Menu of Hope 6. The bidding is closed and the results of the raffle will be announced on Chez Pim's site January 18, 2010.   Because of your generosity
Menus for Hope 6 has raised $77,900.00 which will go towards the UN's World Food Programme.
"We're highlighting a new initiative at the WFP called Purchase for Progress (P4P).  P4P enables smallholder and low-income farmers to supply food to WFP’s global operation.  P4P helps farmers improves farming practices and puts more cash directly into their pockets in return for their crops.  This will also help buoy local economy by creating jobs and income locally.  We food bloggers understand the importance of buying locally and supporting our local farms, P4P helps do the same for farmers in low income countries around the world.  More on P4P at http://www.wfp.org/purchase-progress."
So a big shout out to all of you for joining in this years event. You can see exactly what everyone bid on at Firstgiving and even use this site for your own fund raiser.

Fabrizio and I are looking forward to hosting the winners of our contribution. It will be a delightful experience I am sure. You'll be staying in our Inn, located in the above photo close to the top of the saddle of the ridge in the pines.  We've got a bit more snow at the moment and the view from our balcony looks more like this.
