Vacation/Click for Cans

I'm heading out for my hockey road trip today and may or may not have e-mail access while I'm away. Between the AFC Championship game, the Bloggerational Ball and the inauguration, I'm going to miss a lot. I'll try to post from the road, but no promises as I don't even know if they have the internet in Canada (that's a joke). In the meantime, here is information about the Click for Cans online food drive:

In an effort to take hunger head-on in NFL communities across the country this season, Campbell’s Chunky soup invited fans of all 32 NFL teams to click for their favorite team and help tackle hunger in their community with the Campbell’s Chunky soup "Click for Cans" online food drive.

The contest is now in the postseason with the top four AFC teams and the top four NFC teams competing in the first-ever three-week Click for Cans playoffs, where they will have a chance to play for the Click for Cans Championship and the ultimate prize—thousands of cans of soup for their local Feeding America food bank. Among the AFC teams competing in the inaugural Click for Cans Championship postseason are the Pittsburgh Steelers, who defeated the Indianapolis Colts in the first round of the playoffs.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the Steelers trailed the Buffalo Bills by 18,000 votes with voting ending Thursday, January 15 at 11:59pm ET. In addition to the donations made to the conference winners (12,000 cans each) and the Click for Cans overall champion (an additional 5,000 cans), Chunky soup will donate 1,000 cans of soup to each team’s Feeding America food bank affiliate on behalf of the Campbell’s Chunky/NFL Tackling Hunger program.

So vote for the Steelers in the Click for Cans contest.
