Riding in cars with jars from the stars for charity

My first thought when I saw the emailed announcement’s subject line, “Bernardin’s #jarsfromthestars – Whose jar would you bid on?”:

We can pickle that.

Canadian canning company Bernardin naturally makes me think of pickling things in mason jars.

Bernardin has teamed up with Canadian celebrities for Jars from the Stars charity auction.

From pickled leeks to concert memorabilia, Bernardin has partnered up with Canadian celebrities for Jars From the Stars, a charitable initiative in support of the Community Food Centres Canada. Bid on a one-of-a-kind star filled and signed limited edition vintage green Bernardin jar. Each jar has been personalized by a celebrity.
