As today is December 1 (side note: seriously, December? where did November go? for that matter, where did 2009 go?) and the holiday season is fast approaching, I've been feeling the need to give something back. For all of my complaining about school and life in general, I am pretty blessed, and I want to help those that are less fortunate than me. That being said, I don't have a lot of extra time or cash to donate. So when I saw this post on one of my favorite fancy blogs, I knew I had to participate. And so here we are: Cans for Comments!
The premise is simple: for every comment I receive on my blog between now and December 15, I will donate one can of food to a local food shelf. I'll also donate an additional can for every subscriber, current or new (let me know in the comments if you currently subscribe). The comments don't have to be on only this post - they can be on any of my posts, past or future. Just keep 'em coming!
I'll post a picture of my donation when all is said and done. I'm so excited for this chance to help end hunger in my community, and I urge my fellow bloggers to do the same!
p.s.: Want another way to donate to charity while spending zero extra time and money? Replace Google with GoodSearch. Every search gives a charity of your choice (mine is Homeward Bound - where we got our pup) about one cent. That doesn't sound like much, but it adds up fast! Also, if you're doing some online shopping this holiday season, shop through GoodShop and up to 30% of your purchase goes to your charity. Now there's a win-win situation :)
