Menu for hope V: Win Moomin bakeware!

Moomin baking collection, prize code EU08

It’s December and for the fifth year in a row food bloggers from all over the world are raising money to the United Nations World Food Programme by offering wonderful culinary prizes to tempt people to donate money.

For every US$10, the you receive a virtual raffle ticket toward a prize of your choice. Last year we collected the incredible sum of nearly $100.000!!! This year once again, all money will go to the UN World Food Programme and the money are earmarked to a school’s feeding program in Lesotho. We chose to support the school lunch program because providing food for the children not only keeps them alive, but helps them stay in school so that they learn the skills to feed themselves in the future. Everyone, no matter where you live, can participate. Make sure to check out all available prizes at Chez Pim, just check that the things you want to bid on can be shipped to where you live.

So what do I do to contribute to Menu for Hope 5? I’m donating a very special prize to the raffle, quite similiar to last years prize, to tempt my dear readers. My prize for Menu for Hope is a baking collection for all Moomin lovers! It’s Moomin Mania, a special irresistible baking collection for all Moomin lovers (prize code EU08) that consists of:

1 Moomintroll cake mold
1 Moomintroll cookie cutter
1 Moominmamma cookie cutter
1 Moominpappa cookie cutter
1 Lilla My cookie cutter
1 Snork maiden cookie cutter
1 Groke cookie cutter
1 Snufkin cookie cutter
1 Hattifatteners cookie cutter
1 Grooke cookie cutter
1 Stinky cookie cutter
4 dessert spoons from Hackman with Moomin motifs
Moomin paper napkins
1 pot holder with Moomin motifs
1 oven mit with Moomin motifs

Everything is of course brand new in their original packages and I will ship them anywhere in the world. The 9 different cookies come out beautifully with outlines and people just love them. You can make any cut-out cookies with the cutters and decorate them as you wish. The cake mold holds 400 ml and results in a cute Moomin cake.

    Awh, I tried to donate but the site won’t accept my details as my visa isn’t a credit card. Booo!

    Hope you help raise a tonne of money!

    How did you first get involved with Menu for Hope, and why is hunger an important issue to you? I’m working on a blog posting that will compile the thoughts of various Menu for Hope participants! Please email any ideas to blog[at]friendsofwfp.org.

    Thanks for your input, and for supporting the World Food Program!
