The Blog-a-thon was a wild adventure into 24 hour Canter’s Land! I spent a total of about 6 hours there and I will admit my clothing and hair still, uh, smells a bit like it. Luckily it’s laundry day…
More importantly! While we fell way short of our fundraising goals (I did aim REALLY high), we did raise money for LA Foodbank. There was $61.78 deposited into our collection box. I hope you don’t mind if I round up and donate $62 even.
$62 donated = 248 meals or 310 pounds of food.
As for the canned goods, I estimate we collected between 60 and 100 pounds of it. The breakdown is as follows:
4 package of pasta
5 packaged meals
1 GIANT container of peanut butter
1 box of popcorn
1 bag of nuts
1 bag of pretzels
I will be delivering the cash and all these foods to the Foodbank tomorrow.
Thanks again to everyone who came by to nosh, kibitz and donate. We loved being there.
