Here's another way to get your hands on a Cronut: donate to charity. Dominique Ansel has teamed up with the Food Bank for New York City to create The Cronut Project, a fundraiser to help hunger-relief in the city. Ansel has created a special edition passion fruit Cronut for the fundraiser.

This week until Friday, August 2nd at 8am, The Cronut Project will be offering up two special edition Cronuts each day for people who donate to the Food Bank for New York City. One Cronut will go to the highest donor of the day, and the other will go to a very lucky random donor of the day. You need to donate a minimum of $5 to be considered for the Cronut. The Cronuts will be delivered the next weekend no more than six hours after being fried. Unfortunately, you need to be in New York to participate in this delicious fundraiser, but if you're there –– get 'em while they're hot!
