“Ganesha - ‘Blessing The Beginning of a Hunger-Free World’”
True to Canstruction’s spirit we would like to make a small dent on world hunger through some cultural awareness, dash of creativity, spoonful of fun and whole lot of community togetherness. This year, in keeping with the celebratory spirit of Ganesha Chaturthi (which coincides with the event), we’ve planned on Canstruction of Ganesha. To the uninitiated, Ganesha is a very popular Hindu mythological figure and is known to be ‘remover of obstacles’. At this time of festival huge elaborately crafted statues of Ganesha are installed and worshipped for 10 days. At the end of festival, the statues are immersed in ocean and dissolved, which, in this event will be through decanstruction and donation of the cans. Although the structure will disappear, the energy will continue!
Can Count: 3,000
1000 (5 oz cans) Chunk Light Tuna
150 (5 oz cans) Chunk Yellowfin Tuna
200 (5 oz cans) Bumble Bee Tonno in Olive Oil
