Beau over at Basic Juice emailed the wine blogosphere this morning with a challenge he posted to his blog a few days back:
“Take the amount of ca$h you spend on wine/vin/wein/vino over the course of 1 week, 1 month, or even 1 year and donate it toÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦”, the relief agency of your choice.
I have placed Beau’s banner on the right menu of the blog and encourage everyone to make a donation.
I also noticed over at the eRobertParker forum that Bob Fleming posted a generous donation matching offer of up to $5,000 of your contribution. Many others have also posted ideas to auction off parts of their wine collections to support Hurricane survivors.
It’s great to see the online wine community coming together to help others in need with the same passion we bring to our love of the grape.
I organize a special operation “wine & solidarity after Katrina”.
