Win a Box of delicious Food Goodies

We are trying to raise money to help Food Runners: Our Blogathon efforts are detailed here.

Blimey, it's hard work getting you lot to part with your money!

XX-hundred visitors a day, according to my site meter, and I have only managed to get 20 of you so far to pledge a donation. But what a fabulous, generous 20 readers you are, bringing the pledges to a total of $980, only $20 shy of my stage one $1000 target. I am overwhelmed by your generosity. Thank you, all of you, family, friends and strangers alike!

Chocolates, Jam, a Cookbook and more:
Now to the rest of you: I am greedy, I want your money for Food Runners! Please help me to raise even more. Your donation, however small, will go to a great cause. And now, as an extra incentive, I am offering a prize to tempt further donations. Everyone who non-anonymously pledges a donation to Food Runners via this Blogathon by 12 midday PST on Saturday 29th July 2006, including donators to date, will be entered into a draw to win a box of San Francisco Food goodies that I will pick up at the market on Saturday morning. This box will include, but not be limited to Scharffenburger Chocolate, Michael Recchiuti Chocolate, June Taylor Jam and The San Francisco Ferry Plaza Farmers Market Cookbook. Come shopping with me at 8am PST on Saturday morning to see what else goes in the goody box. The draw itself will take place on Saturday afternoon. Get your pledge in now to be sure to be in with a chance to have this fabulous prize sent directly to your door.

    Woo hoo! $1000! Good for you! I'm almost there myself.

    Good luck for tomorrow. I went to the market today to stock up on Blogathon food, so there will be much cooking at my place over the next day or so.

    Good luck, Sam! I'll be grading papers all weekend (sitting in front of my computer), so I hope to take frequent breaks and keep you company in the comments.

    It looks like you're nearing $1500!!

    Oh, and FYI, the link at the top, the one that says "our blogathon efforts are detailed here" links to your front page. I thought maybe it was meant to take me somewhere else?

    As they like to say in America:


    you really do, I can't thank you all enough.

    But please forgive me cos I plan to keep on pushing...
