Cans for Comments Goes Cross-Continent!

Wow!The spirit of giving is truly awesome! Cans for comments has spread from coast to coast. The can count is rising rapidly & we are so stoked that so many others from Canada & the United States have joined in to help out their local food banks. Why not grab big coffee & a big cinnamon bun & spend some time browsing blogs, checking out great imagery & sharing the luv with some comments?!

In NYC, our gritty-on-the-outside, softie-on-the-inside, dear friend Jason Groupp, known for his edgy (and sexy!) I Heart NY Sessions.

In Connecticut, the inspiring Justin & Mary. These two are seriously fun; we just want to hang out and drink some venti peppermint lattes with them! They also happen to be the founders of an incredible organization Portrait House which raises funds for Habitat For Humanity - check them out!

Industry leader & founder of Modern Photographers, Mark Eric hails from down south in Louisiana. Post on his cans for comments entry at Rocktographers while you're checking out the most jaw-dropping ring shots you've ever seen!

The ultimate photographer lovecat & weddingbee blogger, Anne Ruthmann, in Massachusetts.

David & Kimi of Ohana in California - aloha spirit, oh-my-gosh-amazing images, and a killer style!

And the list of generous (and not-to-mention fabulously talented!) photographers keeps on growing (I can't keep up!)! Enjoy!

And of course, you gotta check out Rielly's Cans for Comments vid on his blog Jerk With a Camera!

**Added on Wednesday ~ More & more people doing this on their blogs - woo-hoo!

Vancouver journalist Loxy, luxury wedding planner Blue Orchid, Graphic designer Retropsective, & photographers from around the world: John Waire, Melanie Mansfield, Chantel Stone, MetroBluePhoto, R Peters, Curtis Moore, KampPhotography, Heather Garland, EveryLittleMoment, Nicole Hensley, Rob&Lauren, Lisette Price, RedPhotoCo, Catie Ronquillo, Melanie Driedger, Deb Thompson, Nick at The OtherAngle, Edison Photography, Susan B, Asim Soofi, Josh Solar, Misty Dawn, lorenw, Erica May, LivingProof, MKD, Smith Gallery, Amie Otto, Lynsey Peterson, Michelle Sidles, Ultimate Image Weddings and even Catherine Sparks from all the way out in Germany!

If you are doing this too- add a comment with a link to your blog so people can check it out!

Keep those comments for cans coming! I think we're going need a REALLY BIG shopping cart come Thursday!
