    Well I was gonna choose the Falcons, even though they suck! (How sad, I just remembered that they're gonna be on Sunday Night Football and my dude, Warrick Dunn, is out for the season )

    But the link doesn't work! Grr...

    I'm still getting the error message. Am I the only one? I am trying though!

    Someone donate one from me! Click the Falcons and then let me know how many have been donated to them...thanks! I would seriously do it!

    I read on snopes.com that a lot of the soup doesn't even get donated and what does get donated is returnes from stores. Dented cans, etc.

    not sure exactly where they get the soup cans, but this is just one of the "Tackling Hunger" programs that Campbells sponsors, with NFL tie-ins for most of them. They have some interesting ones, like donating to food shelves in NFL Franchise cities based on the combined weight of their Linebackers at the end of the pre-season. I believe that Green Bay is still the smallest metro area with an NFL franchise, so the food shelves in the Bay should be well stocked after this promotion. They could always send some to Milwaukee, many more folks live there.

    the link worked for me again today, but is only supposed to allow you to vote once per day, so maybe that is part of the link problems

    This is such a painless way for everyone to help with a food drive. Thanks for posting this.

    Here's the snopes.com info about the program. And while Campbell's DOES donate 5 million cans of soup, the logistics of it leave something to be desired.

    That said, I'll still click on it once per day, because 5 million cans of soup is 5 million cans of soup.
