I am pleased and excited to announce to you all: The Very First Lolita Canned Food Drive!
Here's how it works:
*Anyone wishing to participate can form (or join) a local group for their area and enter the contest. Groups can register by filling out the form below.
*Groups will see how many cans of food they can collect for a local charity of their choice during the contest.
*The group with the most cans of food by the end of the competition will win a prize!
***Contest will "officially" run from Halloween (Oct. 31) until Dec. 15 (but of course if you start early, who will know?).
***All groups must be registered by Nov. 15th at the latest.
***All groups must pick a Contact Person and put their name and email into the registration form (below) so that I can pass along any useful information and keep track of how you are doing.
***All groups must provide a local charity's name and a photo of their group + the cans they've collected (not just for evidence that you did it, but so that I can make a cute photo post of the wonderful lolitas who did such good works when we announce the winner!) Please have your photos in by Dec. 17th at the latest.
***I will make update posts to remind people of deadlines and so groups know how many cans the others have collected-- trust me the prize will be something really fun, so you'll want to keep track! We all know we love competition and in this case competition = more food to donate!
***Other foods are WONDERFUL but only cans are "counted"!!! Still-- donating other food definitely "counts" in that you gave from the heart to people who need it!

Useful Information and Tips:
Here are some tips for collecting cans!
*Set up donation boxes to collect cans at your school or work. (Be sure to ask first!) Remember, brightly colored boxes attract attention, so use wrapping paper, bows, artwork, etc.
*Throw lolita parties and gatherings and have a "can requirement". Ex: Tea Party This Saturday! 5 Cans Per Entry!
*Clean out your pantries + your friends and families pantries (again, ask if the food's not yours and please make sure to check that the food inside the can has not expired!).
*Pool your group's resources and hit up grocery store sales.
