A quick non-run blog!On twitter, @CassLynee suggested I try a product called Body Glide, a product that is supposed to stop chafing. When I retweeted that the name sounded rude(The PC way of saying it sounded like sex lubricant), the company Bodyglide tweeted me.
Now, that's cool! I love tweeting corporations. I follow a couple, Like Crust Pizza... (which I plan to demolish this weekend as a 2 week celebratory dinner!) But what would have been better was if Body Glide said to me- Hey, you are doing this for charity... let us, with our million dollar company, donate a little bit to a good cause!
Now I am not paid by a corporation, I am not some stupid online marketing experience. I am a real person, trying to get fit and raise some money for charity. As such, I will sell my soul in order to raise money. Why? Because I, like many people, have had family members who have been affected by cancer. It is a terrible, sad, and destructive disease that needs to be wiped of the face of the planet. I specifically support the Prostate Cancer foundation as so many men die from Prostate cancer(more than women with breast cancer), yet everywhere you look, money is raised for breast cancer and not prostate cancer. I'm not saying raising money for breast cancer is bad- it's just there are so many forms of cancer and all of them need to be lead out into the field and Old Yellered! That's why you can donate(click here) to both the Prostate Cancer Foundation and also the wider reaching Cancer Council.
So I say to you large corporations. If you donate some money to charity(and heck you can throw me a free whatever if you so wish hahaha). I will work out some way to promote your company on here ie put your logo on the background etc.
I feel not enough companies donate to charity and if a little free advertising will get you to cough up some cash for Cancer Research, I will do it. So email me, lets work something out, and lets get as much money for cancer research as possible. I'll do my bit and keep on running/blogging/making a fool of myself, you do your part and get behind and support this!
I am off for my run in 2-3 hours so keep an eye out for the new post-run blog in 4-5 hours!
