Helping The Hungry at Thanksgiving and Year-Round: Canstruction


November 21, 2013

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.

Happy Thanksgiving!
