Cook for the Cure: Host a party, make a difference.

Sunday, July 15, 2012 at 04:07 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

Who doesn’t love throwing a good party? But instead of just feeding and entertaining guests, here’s your chance to make a real difference while playing host. Join KitchenAid for 1,000 Cooks for the Cure—a weeklong, DIY fundraising initiative with the goal of reaching 1,000 parties in homes and offices across the country.

From Friday, July 20 — Sunday, July 29, 2012, plan a party of any kind—whether an office potluck, a family barbecue or weekend brunch with friends. Rather than accepting hostess gifts, food or wine, you can encourage guests to bring a small donation for Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help in the fight against breast cancer.

Any party host that raises $50 or more will receive a FREE plate designed by Jacques Pepin in the mail, and anyone who hosts a party and registers it on our website will automatically be entered to receive the ultimate “thank you” from Jacques Pepin himself—a 3-day trip to NYC to attend one of his private cooking classes!
 
Participating is as easy as pie:

 1. Host a Party. Invite your friends and family to help raise money for the cause. Download KitchenAid’s hosting guides here and use their pretty pink product images and logos to plan your own unique soirée.

2. Register Your Party. Quick and easy online registration here.

3. Share Your Stories. Upload party photos and stories on KitchenAid’s Facebook page.
 
Cook for the Cure® is a program that gives people with the passion for cooking a way to support the fight against breast cancer, and the partnership between Susan G. Komen for the Cure and KitchenAid has raised over $8 million in the past decade. Let’s keep cooking together to bring an end to breast cancer!

Tap Into an Easy Way to Help Children in Need

Sunday, March 18, 2012 at 10:03 AM - Posted by Megan - (1) comment

Did you know that just $1 can supply a child with safe drinking water for 40 days? To help the millions in need, support the UNICEF Tap Project during World Water Week from March 19-23, 2012. It’s such a smart and simple concept—just pay $1 or more for the tap water you usually enjoy for free while dining out. With your donation, UNICEF will provide lifesaving water and sanitation to kids around the world.

Your $1 supplies a child with access to clean, safe water for 40 days, or 40 children with access to safe water for one day. Thousands of restaurants across the country are participating (click here for the full list), with notables in NYC including Annisa, Balthazar, Bar Americain, Colicchio & SonsL’Artusi, Rouge Tomate, Telepan and The Spotted Pig.

Since its inception in 2007, the UNICEF Tap Project has raised nearly $3 million in the U.S. and has helped provide clean water for millions of young ones globally. Now in its sixth year, the nationwide campaign aims to raise more than ever to help end the world water crisis.

Dine out, drink up and make a difference this week!
