Cans for Comments
As you guys all know, I'm all about the food...and at this time of year, I'm always reminded about those people who aren't as fortunate as we are to be able to food on the table. Food is such an important thing for me and Hubs, and to think that there are people out there who don't have enough to eat honestly breaks my heart. I've been hearing a lot lately that food banks have seen a real change in the demographic that is using the service...there's a lot of working poor who can't afford to feed their families. I was pondering what else I can do to help the hungry...hmmmm...
Enter Cans for Comments! This is going around in bloggieland, and it's such an awesome idea. For December 1st - 15th, I will donate one can of food to our local food bank, the Mustard Seed, for every comment that I receive. And as an extra incentive to leave comments, I'll also donate $1 for each comment to the food bank...so a can and $1 for each comment! Hunger-related issues really resonate with me so I'm happy to put my money where my mouth is (pun intended). Was that a collective groan I heard? Heh.
