Can Town Project -- Sakura Con 2013?
Most everyone in the Homestuck community knows what The Can Town Project is, and I was thinking, what if we brought this to Sakura Con 2013? It’s been done at cons before with staff support, so why not? :3 Please like or reblog this to show your support, and if you’re interested in helping, message me. If this gets enough attention and I know enough people would participate, I’ll contact the SCon staff. Together we can try to make this official for Sakura Con 2013!
The Can Town Project
To my followers who are Homestuck fans OR fans of doing nice things for your community, I want to bring this tumblr to your attention:
I just happened to have a post roll across my dash mentioning something about this and when I looked it up I found something really neat!
This is an explanation as to what the Can Town Project idea is from their tumblr:
“Every Homestuck fan knows about Can Town. The Can Town Project is something I decided to put together to help local communities. What goes down is that if you have a Homestuck meet up you ask the people to bring canned goods. Once you have them, you all make a town, take a picture (with or with out the group), submit the picture and give the goods to your local food bank.”
I think this is a fun idea that needs more attention! I’d love to get people together to do this at NYCC (if I go that is, or not!) and donate to the NYC Food Bank. Heck, even a meet-up in my area would be nice and we could donate to an organization in my county. I know people who would know where to send the food.
But yes! If you are planning a meet up or going to a meet up I highly recommend you bring this up! Canned goods are inexpensive; you might even have a can sitting around your house that you won’t use otherwise, so why waste it?
So yes! Whether I go to NYCC and see if anyone will participate in this with me or I get a meet up together in my area (WHICH IS PROBABLY NOT GONNA HAPPEN I’M TOO SHY AND I DON’T EVEN HAVE A COSTUME AHH-) I would n=love to do this! And I’d love to see more people doing this in general!
So please reblog this, write up your own post, whatever. Let’s get a signal boost for The Can Town Project!!!
