Cans for Comments!!! Comment & Give Back!!


I would like to thank some fellow bloggers for the inspiration for this post! I just had to jump on the "can-wagon!!"

In the current state that people have so little, Unique Event Design has decided to give back to the community! We are implementing "Cans for Comments" on our blog. For every comment that we receive not only on this post, but on the entire blog, we will donate one can to Metropolitan Ministries of Tampa Bay. Even though we are a little late this month, it's better to start now, than later! We are going to keep a running tally for the month of March, which means we are already at two (thanks Christi)! This tally will continue to increase until midnight Eastern standard time on Tuesday, March 31. We will gather all of the cans and bring the month's worth to Metropolitan Ministries of Tampa Bay.
We chose this particular charity as the receiver of this gift because of a personal connection that I have to them. When I was a senior in high school, we gathered food for Metropolitan Ministries of Tampa Bay. Our school gathered the most food in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties! "Metropolitan Ministries' mission is to care for the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless in our community through services that alleviate suffering, promote dignity and instill self sufficiency...as an expression of the ongoing ministry of Jesus Christ."

We hope you join in with our spirit of giving and join in on the fun! So...comment, comment, comment!!! Remember, you are helping those less fortunate and giving back to our community!

Thank you!!

This is such a wonderful idea, Staci! I'm happy to contribute, particularly because Met Min is significant to me, as well. It is incredibly refreshing to see a local, successful business be socially mindful. More power to you, Staci! Please let me know if there is any other way I can contribute!

Staci - I love it! Great idea. So wonderful to see giving back to the community. We had a Toys for Tots drive at our Christmas party and I was blown away by the response. I am marking your blog in my favs and I am going to post a link from my blog!

I certainly can't take credit for it. Google "cans for comments," there's so many industry professionals doing this too!

Great idea Staci! Local charities like Met Min are suffering with these hard economic times as well. It's wonderful to see someone doing this!

If I comment once a day is that a can a day? =)
