Chunky Soup Promotion

I've gotten several messages, from friends and others, urging me to go to http://www.chunky.com/clickforcansvote.aspx and "vote" for the Steelers. The "winning" team and the "most improved" team earn Chunky Soup donations for their local food banks.

The current "standings" are viewable here. Sure enough, the Steelers are #2, up from #6 last year. The promotion ends tomorrow.

The point of the messages is to keep the Green Bay Packers from "winning" this promotion again and again. It's a local pride thing.

Sorry to seem like a Grinch, but I'm not getting on this bandwagon. The whole thing strikes me as distasteful. Why doesn't Campbell's simply donate food to food banks in every NFL city in the name of the local team? And why don't all of you Chunky-Soup-clickers send checks to your local food banks, too?
