A Bittersweet Call to Action

Chefs and restaurateurs, there’s something you can do to help the tsunami relief efforts in South Asia. Participate in Sweet Relief, a growing nation-wide coalition of restaurants that are raising money for the tsunami victims by donating a percentage of all dessert sales at lunch and dinner in January and/or February to CARE, a humanitarian agency fighting poverty around the world.

CARE (www.care.org) has had a long-standing presence in the areas affected and, as a result, has been able to quickly mobilize and distribute food and water to victims immediately after the tragedy. Sweet Relief’s donations will go towards clean water to reduce threat of illness, shelter materials, basic medical supplies, food and cooking supplies. CARE will also continue their work in the area for years staying on to help rebuild communities and livelihoods.

To contribute, restaurants are asked to send a check with their tax deductible donation at the end of the month made payable to CARE. Indicate “Tsunami Relief” in the memo space. Checks should be mailed to the following address:

So far there are 36 restaurants participating in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Texas – and the number keeps growing. Restaurants can elect to participate for January only or to continue the effort in February. They can also elect to donate more or less than the suggested 25%. For more information on participating restaurants go to www.sweetrelief.us.
