It’s that time of year again for The Social Robot to give back. We participate in the cans for comments initiative to make sure that our fellow Americans have enough to eat as the weather gets colder.
This year, we are raising money for Feeding America, a national non-profit that gives its time and resources to food banks across the United States. Just donating $1 to this organization is the equivalent to 8 meals!
With over 50 million people going hungry in the United States (1 in 6), we need to continue working to make food available to those who need it.
Here’s how it works:
Just as with our other ‘Cans for Comments’ drives, comments can either be on this post or any other post on The Social Robot. Each person can only comment twice and it must be a substantial comment that makes sense and is relevant to the discussion (spam comments won’t count, trackbacks will). For each comment, I will donate $1 to Feeding America.
Additionally- I will also donate another 50 cents for every person that tweets or shares this post on Facebook or Twitter. Please leave an additional comment on this post if you shared it on Twitter or Facebook. You can also include @thesocialrobot in your tweet for it to count.
Example Tweet: “I just commented on @thesocialrobot to donate $1 to @feedingamerica. Learn more here: http://goo.gl/3T4Cv”
The commenting and sharing period is from November 15, 2012 to November 30. We will donate a maximum of $300 and a minimum of $50.
If you want to do more, feel free to contribute to our Virtual Food Drive on Feeding America‘s website.
Please use the sharing tools to the left and at the bottom of this post to let everyone know about Cash for Comments and Feeding America! Thanks to everyone who will participate and I’ll post an update once the commenting period is over.
PS: Here are the results of our past Cans for Comments drives:
