CANstruction

We (Mom, Dad, Aaron and I) just got back from "CANstruction" at the cruise ship terminal at Canada Place in Vancouver.

CANstruction
From their website:
Canstruction Vancouver showcases the considerable talent and generosity of our creative communities in the fight against hunger. Now in its 4th year, this international design/build competition, which benefits local food banks, brings together teams of architects, engineers, graphic artists and students to build amazing sculptures using only canned food and other non-perishables.

Our favourites?

Dear Heidi,
I love reading your bloggs. It makes me feel like I'm there. I love that you talked about our trip to 100 Mile! I can't beleive it's been snowing so much there. I miss the snow! It was 32 degrees here today. What is the application that you mentioned with regards to your passport photo? Love you much! Mere

Hi Heidi- love the pics of the cantastic thing. My son's comment? Mommy, who gets to break those things?

Too cool, Ian likes the monster truck, but he never hear of that one... he didn't understand that it was like a play on words. Do all those cans go to a food bank or something like that?

Love the Can sculptures - what a funny idea :)

Ehem - what's this about the passport application? I mean you do know that you need one to come to Australia, right? :P

Passport application - the paper work that I would actually have to submit. I figure there's no point in even dreaming about travelling if I don't have a passport...and yes...it's just a dream at this point. I'm hoping that having my picture taken will inspire me to find and submit the paperwork.

Cans - Good question Christy. That would be fun! Except a lot of them are taped together so it's not like they can just topple :P

Pamlea, yes, this is a fundraiser (or is that foodraiser :P) for the foodbank. According to their website: "Since the inaugural event in 2003, Canstruction Vancouver has raised more than 355,000 cans of food for Food Bank shelves" Pretty darn good!!!
