Menu for Hope III - there's more

The Menu for Hope III campaign has been a great success this year, and there has been over $60,000 raised for the UN Food Programme! Wow, great job Chez Pim for putting together a great food blogging community effort! Thanks Kalyn for making it happen for the Central USA (where I live)!

Remember, it is never to late to give what you can. You can always log onto the UN Food Programme website and donate directly to them, or just go to your favorite charitable organization and give. There is a bigger world view than that out of my window. Recent Nobel Peace Laureates Muhammad Yunus, Wangari Maathai, Shirin Ebadi, Jimmy Carter, Kofi Annan, and ones from that past such as the 14th Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, and Martin Luther King, Jr all have linked Peace with the ending of human rights violations, hunger and poverty. This message has been spoken year after year for at least 50 years at the annual Nobel Peace Lecture. I suspect that these bright minds know something bigger than my world view.

Thank You for contributing to the Menu for Hope III! Even the smallest contribute counts because it all adds up.
