Helping The Hungry at Thanksgiving and Year-Round: Canstruction

Originally posted: November 21, 2013 on TrishMcFarlane.com

From time to time, I look back at my blog to remind myself if I have written about a topic.  Today was one of those days when I had an idea I want to write about but needed to check to make sure I hadn’t already explored it before.  As I paged through hundreds of post titles, I came across one that caught my eye.  It was a post I wrote about Canstruction two years ago when I visited NYC.

What is Canstruction you ask?

Canstruction is a non-profit organization that holds contests around the world in order to raise food, and money, for local food banks.  They also hope to bring awareness to the fight against hunger.   The amazing art that these teams create out of cans is almost unimaginable.  Just look at some of the pictures I took at the NYC event in 2011.


2011-11-16_15-40-55_435The amount of time and effort that people put into raising awareness to prevent their fellow man from going hungry was inspiring.  I immediately wanted to do my part to help the cause.  As you prepare for that great meal on Thanksgiving, please consider all the people who will be visiting their local food bank this year in order to feed their family.  I just donated and it is so easy to help a family in need.  Click HERE to donate and help fight hunger.  And, check their events page to find out when Canstruction will be coming to your city.

Happy Thanksgiving!
