You people are awesome. Thanks to your help as donors, bidders, and all around generous humanitarians, as of midnight on 12/31/09 when the Menu for Hope raffle closed, we raised $77,900 for the UN World Food Programme. Every single cent of that money is going to poor farmers in Africa, and you deserve a round of applause.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Now, the waiting begins. Check back here on Vinography or on Chez Pim on January 18th for the announcement of the winners!
Hope your 2010 is off to a wonderful start. Thanks to you, mine most certainly is.
