cans for comments . . .

DEADLINE EXTENDED - ALL WEEKEND.
leave a comment = I will buy a can for local shelter/foodbank.

a good amount of amazing photographers are doing a cans for comments campaign and i think it's a fabulous idea. in my attempt to really teach my children gratitude we've organized our neighborhood in providing Christmas for a family at our children's school. It has touch my heart so much to see everyone coming together to help this family have the best Christmas. I don't know the family and it's totally anonymous but just simply knowing that the parents won't be stressed and there sweet children won't be disappointed on Christmas morning makes me just want to cry. We did not have much at all growing up - I've been in there shoes and this year I've cut back on my spending for my children/husband/family members and have vowed to do a little more for others. So with that being said for the next 24 hours, I will be running the Cans for Comments Campaign on my blog. Here is how is works . . .


1. Leave one comment within the 24 hour period. Dec. 11th 10am - Dec 12th 10am

2. Link my campaign on your blog - just have your friends and family come and leave a comment as well. And they can even link my blog - the more comments the more cans.

3. I will count all the comments and donate a can of food for each comment. The cans will be split up between Second Harvest and our schools MOMS anonymous organization!

so with that being said - here are a few pictures of my yesterday.

our sweet little zac - named after the uber talented zac efron [yes my daughter is 7 years old and this is her dog]




this image is of my little table at the vendor showcase at the country club. It was a fun evening, met lots of wonderful people. What do you think? It was kind of a last minute thing. A simple set up, and no the bride on my slideshow is not Violet Beauregarde - not sure why it shows up so blue on camera. I do notice as I look at this image I should have more of a "sign" with my logo and such. For sure next time.



ok - now it's time for the comments to come on in :)
Remember link my blog on your blog. . . the more comments = more cans.
and one commenter will win an itunes gift card.

Have a lovely day

Courtney

Great ideal. I'm not a blogger, but my daughter is so I read her's all the time. Here's another can. Thanksgiving and Christmas our church fixed boxs of canned goods our church members gave. Thanksgiving a girl scout troop and a class at school surprised us with a truck load of canned goods they had collected. Isn't God good. Keep up the good work. God bless you and Merry Christmas.

Tommie December 14, 2008 at 6:36 PM  

By the way my daughter is Kim. How about another can.
