...of the Kashmiri Cooking Kit: Sandy Der!
Over the weekend, Pim held the much anticipated raffle to choose the winners of the many generous prizes donated by the food blogging community to raise money for A Menu for Hope II. Among the many people who selected the box I donated of special Kashmiri and Indian spices, teas, oils, and rice, Pim drew Sandy's name. Way to go, Sandy!
Sandy, as soon as you read this, please contact me by following the "email me" link in the right hand column of this web page so we can arrange shipping of your new Kashmiri Cooking Kit.
Before scrambling over to Pim's site to see if your name is amongst the list of raffle winners of one of the many other prizes, take a moment to bask in the warmth of your generosity, knowing that you participated in the campaign that raised over $17,000 for UNICEF's efforts.
Your donation has already helped to ease the suffering of the victims of the devastating earthquakes that struck the Kashmir region of Pakistan and northern India 3 months ago. To further understand the value of your kindness, check out the moving story and short video on the UNICEF website about how donations are helping to keep the children warm during the cold Himalayan winter.
I salute every one of you who participated in this wildly successful fundraiser! I especially want to give a big standing ovation to Pim of chezpim for organizing A Menu for Hope II!
Today, we are all winners!
OK, now go and check to see if you won a prize!
