The first of my 10 CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS for 2011 is The Philanthropic Foodie.
The idea was conceived to create a unique Christmas gift, offering the ultimate snap shot of Sydney’s cult culinary elite. Most importantly, while devising something so innately opulent and indulgent, with all profits to be given to Sydney’s homeless charity, Youth Off The Streets.
The Philanthropic Foodie proudly introduces Love Sydney, an inspirational Christmas gift for Sydney-siders with a shared love of fine food, beautiful beverages and great living. Without doubt the coolest hamper this Summer, Love Sydney’s unique offering sources products from only award winning cult Sydney restaurants, delis and bakeries, not traditionally available in hamper format. These brands and personalities include Christine Manfield (Universal, Darlinghurst), Jarod Ingersoll (Danks Street Depot, Cotton Duck), Will Young (Campos), the Palumbo brothers (Gelato Messina), David Mcguinness (Bourke Street Bakery), Simon Johnson, the Harris family (Harris Farm Markets) and more..
Other highlights include “Bvlgari sparkles S.Pellegrino” limited edition mineral water, hand drawn Christmas Card by Sneaky Sound System’s Daimon Downey, and a freshly pressed CD album from über Sydney record label Future Classic.
With 36,000 Australian teenagers homeless this Christmas, The Philanthropic Foodie are hoping to raise $25,000 for Youth Off The Streets via the donation of all hamper profits.
I think this is an amazing gift to give or receive and all profit raised goes to a great cause at this time of the year.
The Philanthropic Foodie is available now, from $150-$250, while stocks last, exclusively from www.foodie.org.au, delivered Australia wide to your door.
