Opportunities

As a general rule, ieatishootipost does not do paid reviews of restaurants. However, I do write advertorials for lifestyle products which would be of interest to our readers.  I do accept invitations to review food but reserve the right to publish only restaurants which I feel will give our readers a positive experience.

ieatishootipost has adopted Goducate as its charity and has organized many fundraising events to support Goducate's work of providing education to the poor in the countries around us.  There are social marketing opportunites that can be explored.
