Cans for Comments = Time is UP!! Results Posted Tomorrow

posted on: December 12, 2008

I have been overwhelmed with wonderful comments on my blog this week and I look forward to all of the giving I'll be doing!! I wanted to let you know that I will be making my donations after the holiday season, when donations generally die down. Part of my giving will be to document the process of getting food from the hands who give to the hands who need in order to help raise awareness about the needs within my own community, here in Lowell, MA. I would like to challenge the other photographers who are participating to offer the same service to their local food banks. As photographers, we can play an incredibly powerful role by using our imagery to inform, educate, and incite passion for the greater good of all. So please, hop on the "can-wagon" and join us in making this incredibly difficult time a little easier for all. As the economy declines, so do donations....

You can add years of health and happiness to someone else's life by simply taking a few minutes of your time to leave comments on the blogs of all who are involved:

    Way rad! I jumped on the can-wagon too - just started my "Cans for Comments" blog today!

    I think it's awesome that you're doing this, Anne! Josh and I have convinced his family to forego the annual gift card exchange for extended family members and instead we're all giving money to a food bank because they are so low on donations. And really, we are all so blessed. I mean, I'm writing this on my laptop from a wireless connection when someone can't find food tonight! It really puts things into perspective, so it's easy to give up a silly gift card to give someone a meal.

    anyways, just a long comment to tell you, once again, that you're awesome.

  28. It is so much fun to see all the comments for Cans for Comments that are being left!!! It is a fun ride on the Canwagon with you!!!

  29. Is it too late to throw in a can of pork & beans for me?

    And thanks for the love you left on my blog!
