    WHAT?!?! Amazing! And, by the way, are you familiar with Archy and Mehitabel? Your post sounded like their poetry… Merry x-mas!

    That is wonderful news. I am grateful to be able to be a tiny, tiny part of it. Pim, you should be so proud of what you have been able to inspire in others. Best Wishes.

    Pim–I am just as in awe as you are. I saw it last night and nearly fell out of my chair. When I told my daughter, she jumped up and down and said, “See! Blogs -can- change the world!”
    It is a beautiful thing that food bloggers have done, because you had a great idea. Thank you for having the idea and organizing it.

    Wow! You did such an amazing job organizing this event and inspiring us all to participate. Writing about food and wine sometimes feels a little frivolous, so I thoroughly enjoyed participating in an event that demonstrated the good will and generosity of the food blogging community and our readership. This “season of giving” was the perfect time to hold the Menu of Hope event. Bravo, Pim!

    Pim — Your efforts and those of your fellow bloggers (and all the participants/donors) are impressive. I didn’t contribute because I had given my alms to a benefit organized by some terrific teenagers (including two of my grandsons) at San Marin High. In an afternoon of music, drama, and art they raised $12,000 to go to Habitat for Humanity to be used in the Gulf States…All of you are generous and caring human beings and both these money-raising campaigns are evidence of what we can do. Thanks.
