So Gourmet Pigs has organized a website and a few restaurants to help out the people in Haiti. The website is called Bid and Eat. All profits will be going directly to charity and it's a great cause. The participating restaurants have donated the certificate to help out, which is very nice of them. As bidders, you get to help out a great cause and enjoy some good food so what is the harm. I myself have started randomly bidding just to help out. If you are interested in any of the restaurants or would like to help out then check out the site. I don't mind helping by promoting this charitable cause but I must put in my 2 cents that I disdain Pizzeria Ortica, which I have to post about still to explain the horridness, but other than that I say bid to your hearts content. What greater thing than to know you did something great and be rewarded at the same time? Even if there are no restaurants you want to eat at you can always bid and give it away or donate to charitable websites to help the disaster relief.

The bidding started today, 2/5/10 and will end 2/9/10. Here is a blurb copied from the site O=9 The addy is just in case you can't get the link.


This auction benefits CHF International and Operation USA for their Haiti Relief efforts.

About CHF International’s Efforts in Haiti:

CHF International responded to the earthquake immediately. We have a team of around 170 staff in Haiti, including many infrastructure and construction experts, who have been undertaking one of the largest USAID funded infrastructure rehabilitation and job creation programs in Haiti since 2006, and who have been responsible for repairing vital infrastructure damaged in the 2008 tropical storm season.

CHF is assisting relief efforts in the immediate aftermath, and then we will focus on the needs of the people as they transition from basic survival to recovery. This includes some of CHF’s areas of greatest expertise such as building ‘transitional shelters’; temporary homes that meet international standards where a family can live during the recovery period; helping to generate livelihoods, by employing people in the clean up of their community; and aiding reconstruction efforts by creating earthquake resistant buildings.


About Operation USA:

Operation USA helps communities alleviate the effects of disasters, disease and endemic poverty throughout the world by providing privately-funded relief, reconstruction and development aid. We provide material and financial assistance to grassroots organizations that promote sustainable development, leadership and capacity building, income generating activities, provide education and health services, and advocate on behalf of vulnerable people.
