Cans for Comments

A charitable initiative is sweeping the blogosphere and I'm excited to do my part. If you haven't already heard about Cans for Comments, allow me to explain.

People leave comments, you donate food.

Every Friday for the month of December, I will donate one can of food (or other non-perishable item) to my local food bank for every five comments posted that day. Stay tuned and get on board if you can! You can participate for one post, one week, or however you like. Every little bit counts, especially over the holidays.

***

And speaking of the holidays, make sure you sign up for Morning Runner and Tall Mom's First Annual Blogger Christmas Card/Gift Exchange!
