get on the can wagon!


our friends and neighbors to the north, chris + lynn, recently wrote to us and invited us to join in a project that involves two of our favorite things,
talking and helping people.
here's the pitch...
a wiser person than i once said that no matter how bad you think you have it, there's always someone out there that's worse off than you are.
truer words were never spoken.
with that in mind, we offer this. for every comment we receive on this post between now and midnight on friday December 12th we will donate one canned food item to the San Diego Food Bank.
that's it.
one for one people. how's that for an exchange rate?
help us rename our city this week to can diego.
chris + lynn put the can in canada,
so be sure to drop by THEIR BLOG to give them some love and see what we mean when we say that they are awesome photographers and even awesomer people.
on a side note, we'd be extra stoked if all of our san diego wedding photographer friends also jumped on the can-wagon and did the same thing on their blogs. for that matter, anyone with a blog can do this. together we can all put a bigger dent in hunger this holiday season.
since i've never done a post without a picture i'm not going to break that streak now. here's a shot that kim took during our recent trip to Bodie CA. i've been dying to post the shots we took there. soon. patience iago. patience. :)
