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!

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.
