Advent Calendar: Comments for Cans!

Advent Calendar: Comments for Cans!

It’s nearly Christmas and time again for the “Comments for Cans” fundraiser. For each comment left below, I’ll donate a dollar to the San Francisco Food Bank. Last year, your comments turned in to $1,350 worth of food for the hungry.

You have until January 4th to comment – one per person please. I think we can beat last year’s record!

And tune in tomorrow for the big reveal: The 2009 Christmas card photo will be posted here!

    This is makes me feel more in the Christmas spirit than a whole month of Christmas music at the stores. Thanks Emily, and Merry Christmas.

    It is great that you donate a dollar. That many cans would be ridiculous.

  8. Lindsey at 4:49 pm

    How generous and what a thoughtful idea. Hoping you are able to donate lots of money to feed the hungry.

    I love that you do this! I did something similar a while ago for a bunch of animal charities. I need to do that again…you're inspiring me:) This is a wonderful cause. Thank you!

    My time is worth this money! I heard about this from Alecia's Facebook posting.

  18. jocelyn at 10:46 pm

    Awesome! Also saw this via Alecia's FB post.

    As soon as our roads are clear, I'll hike down to our local food bank and drop off some shelf goods. Thanks for the reminder!

    This is so wonderful! Thanks for brightening my days all year long, and for teaching me new ways to enjoy San Francisco.

    Hooray for food banks! such a basic need, but they save lives each and every day (and prevent a lot of food from being wasted).

    I saw that Amtrak is taking food donations at their stations if anyone is traveling by train this holiday season.

    What a wonderful blog-tradition! 🙂 Merry Christmas!

  22. Rachel at 2:10 am

    Thank you so much for doing this! I volunteer at a food pantry and there is such a need.

    Nice of you to do this. Are you donating your personal funds? Maybe if a corporate could sponsor this contest we could get matching contributions too!

  31. mrsem Author at 10:45 pm

    Yep – from my personal funds…but I'd welcome a sponsor wanting to do a donation match 🙂

  32. Michelle at 2:35 am

    You are my Christmas card idol (yours are perfect every year) AND my "blogs-doing-some-good-for-for-the-world" idol.

  35. Mike at 10:08 pm

    Great way to have fun, get blog exposure and help your local food bank!

  36. MissScientistSF at 5:07 pm
