LOVING the responses we've gotten so far! You guys are rocking this mission. Perhaps we should do this every Nov/Dec?
If you're new here, bienvenidos. Click here to get a little background on "The Extra 50". (I just made that up.)
Several of you have asked which states are already signed up so you can get the word out to those we don't have.
Here's the sitch:
everything else. help. please. one can will do. one sock. they don't even have to match.
And I think I over-explained what we're doing. That is just so unlike me to keep talking and talking and not really explain something. It's the weirdest thing. (awkward face)
So, here's the deets for you and yours this holiday season:
1.Gather as many cans and socks as you can (via friends, neibs, fam, church, whathaveyou).
2. Make a simple sign with your state's name on it. (seriously, no pressure to be a graphic designer here. It doesn't even need to be spelled correctly)
3. Take a pic of your collection w/ your state sign and email it to me by December 18 (Shay's official last day).
4. Donate your collection to your local shelter/food bank. DO NOT SEND THEM TO ST. LOUIS. We do not want canned corn from every state arriving at my house. Sorry to be so high maintenance on that. =)
By the way, if your state is already listed, it's okay to still do a collection of your own. I'll bet it would still be useful...
