Extra Cans for the Needy is an interesting organization. Mysterious, perhaps, due to Mystery Mike Hennessey, who runs this organization that encourages people to recycle while benefiting the homeless. Everyone wins!

Extra Cans for the Needy is no stranger to Hollywood. Sharon Lawrence is the celebrity spokesperson. The pre-Oscar Ultimate Green Room proceeds went to benefit the organization, as well. During that event, Tony Shalhoub stopped by (and talked to us about his RAV4 EV) and met up with Mystery Mike and a beautiful new relationship was born!

The set of Monk now has a special “gold bin” to allow everyone on set to recycle and benefit those in need. Monk is the first on board with this, but Extra Cans hopes that many more Hollywood sets sign up, as well.

You can do your part, too. On Earth Day, the organization launched 44 Days of Recycling. They hope that you will collect your recyclables, and any others that you can find, over these 44 days. You can then either bring them to the first person in need that you meet by saying, “Would you like to redeem these cans for cash?” Or, you could recycle them and get the cash (in the states that actually give you cash), and donate that money to a charity for the homeless, such as Extra Cans. Report your donations & they’ll tabulate national results!
