Will I stoop so low as to post a heartbreaking and inspiring video, featuring a heroic child with leukemia, in order to get you to donate to the Blogtown Flash Food Drive? Yes, I will.

If an eleven year old boy with a terminal disease can help feed the needy, then I'm sure even the most cynical of Blogtownies can find it in their hearts to pitch in.

We'll be accepting donations and giving out schwag here at the Mercury office (601 NE 21st, suite 200, right behind Club 21) between 9am to 5:30pm until Wednesday afternoon. Drop by, show us your cans, and help some hungry Oregonians!
