Cans for Comments

I'm not sure how many of my readers (all 5 of you!) are local to the Philly/ South Jersey area but, I'm addicted to the Preston and Steve Show on 93.3 WMMR. Their morning show gets me through my 40 mile commutes and the podcasts are a huge reason why I can make it through an entire day of working on the house without high crank levels.

Every year Preston and Steve host a week long food drive called Camp Out for Hunger. All the food collected goes Philabundance to help stock area pantry shelves and feed those in need. http://www.philabundance.org/events/2009_campout.asp

I've been meaning (the best of intentions) to get there and donate for years now, but never have. Usually I go the easier route and bring my canned goods into work, where they also go to Philabundance. This year I've decided to participate in Cans for Comments in order to make sure I get my butt out there!

Cans for Comments is simple, for every comment I get on the blog between now and Wednesday December 2, I'll match it with one can donated to the camp out*. You can comment on any post, old or new. Even a simple "Hi!" counts! I'm definitely going to get out there and donate anyway, but I just thought this would be a fun way to potentially up the donated amount.


* and because I have to be realistic about my own wallet, I'm going to have to cap this at 400. which is kind of a ridiculous goal anyway.

  10. Great idea! We went a couple of years ago to visit P&S and donate, but we haven't been able to make it out there again.
