All week long, for any comments left on this blog (or any of the blogs participating in this project) we will donate one can (or non-perishable item) for every comment we receive!! As bloggers and artists, we put ourself and our work out there every day and sometimes those days seem very lonely when we don't get many comments- so warm up our hearts with a little comment to let us know you're out there and we'll pay it forward by warming up the homes of people who need food and shelter this holiday season!! A little bit of love goes a long way!! If you aren't sure what to write for your comment, here's a question to get you started...
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CANNED OR BOXED FOOD?
(Click on "comments" below to respond!)
Feel free to add comments on my other posts as well- I'm up for the challenge! All responses on this blog from now until Friday, Dec 12 (midnight) will turn into donations for the Merrimack Valley Food Bank, which serves my local community. If you're a blogger, don't be afraid to jump on the bandwagon and start this promotion on your blog! There's never too much love in the world!! Special thanks to Chris+Lynn who shared this project with me!
Update: 12/9/08 I wrote my local food bank and asked them what they needed most in their donations...
"The items we need the most include:
Peanut butter/ jelly, pasta, rice, spaghetti/pasta sauce, tuna and canned chicken, canned vegetables and soup (preferably low sodium), canned fruit (preferably lite or low sugar), oatmeal, applesauce, bottled or canned juice, juice boxes, baking items, paper products, baby food, diapers/wipes and personal care items (shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste)"
So, I'll definitely be providing more than just canned goods to my food bank. I'm also going to try to document the process for you so that you can see how it works from start to finish!
