Cupcakes for Hope!

The amazing food blog, Chocolate and Zucchini, advertised my kind of yummy online fundraiser today--Menu for Hope. Readers choose an item that they are interested in off of the "menu" (which includes everything from french pasteries to Napa wine tours to food photography lessons--all donated by other food bloggers) and donate a minimum of $5. Each $5 donation gives you one chance at winning the prize(s) of your choice. The donations are being collected by UNICEF through the First Giving web site to raise money for earthquake survivors from Northern India and Pakistan.

The First Giving site is totally cool. It allows individuals to create fundraising pages to raise money for causes they care about. Nonprofits can use it too. There is so much that I like about this project:

1. Blogs are being used for a do good purpose
2. It's a community do good project
3. It's an individual do good project.
3. It's accessible to anyone who wants to give (not a $100 a plate dinner)
4. It's fun!

It would be a great holiday season gift idea too if you wanted your family and friends to donate to the cause of your choice rather than to give you stuff.

Side note: The cupcake photo is from a batch I made this weekend, Chocolate Cupcakes with Peppermint Icing from Elinor Klivans' Cupcakes!
