In this morning’s Breakfast Links, we pointed out a sculpture of a Capital Bikeshare bike made out of cans. Builder Jorge Mayor wrote to us with more information about the project and how it helps the needy.

I was part of the team that built the Capital Bikeshare bike out of Amy’s soup cans. We made a timelapse video and posted it on Youtube:



CANstruction benefits the Capital Area Food Bank (all food used is donated to the food bank). People can either go to the Building Museum and donate canned foods by voting for their favorite structure (one can = one vote), or they can go online and make a donation where $1 = one vote. It’s a great event for a great cause, and we’d love for your readers to get involved.
