Looking for that extra-special Christmas present? Wondering how you can help those less fortunate than you during the holiday season? Want an insider peek into the naughty side of Paris? Of course you do!
Lucky for you, it's time for the annual Menu for Hope campaign to benefit the United Nation's World Food Programme. For just $10 donation per ticket, you get a chance to win some really cool prizes donated by foodie bloggers from around the world, including personalized cookbooks, gourmet food goodies, wine-tasting classes, gastronomic tours of various cities, and....(drum roll, please)....the very first Naughty Paris tour by Yours Truly!
Offered as a sneak preview of my upcoming guide, "Naughty Paris: The Good Girls' Guide to Being Bad in the City of Light", the Naughty Paris half-day tour (for up to four people) includes visits to an upscale corset and fetish clothing boutique, an erotic literature store, and even a naughty perfume maker whose scents will make you blush! And to keep up our energy, we'll be sure to stop between each boutique for some naughty indulgences -- a handful of heavenly French pastries, a shot of sinfully strong absinthe liqueur, and a mug of wickedly thick hot chocolate (or creamy Italian gelato, depending on the season). Of course, the lucky winner also gets to pick my brain during the tour for all of the best naughty nightlife recommendations, from the sexiest cabarets to the best clubs to check out the local singles' scene!
Not interested in Naughty Paris? No problemo! Menu for Hope raffle isn't completely random -- you get to actually choose which prize you want to win. The list of goodies and how to participate in the raffle can be found at here. The campaign ends on December 22nd. Winners will be announced and the prizes sent to corresponding winners after January 1st 2006.
Note: Menu foir Hope III will once again be using the site FirstGiving to collect the donation, which, in the interest of transparency, will do all the collection and forward the funds directly to the World Food Programme.
