Corporate whore?

I had mixed emotions about a new widget that WordPress just offered us bloggers.  It is a widget from SocialVibe.  It allows me to post a badge on my blog so that my readers can watch a short advertisement and a Corporation will send money to the charity of my choice.  At first, I wasn’t going to do it.  I felt a little bit like a Corporate whore.  After a little investigation, I realized that I could sponsor the Surfrider foundation.  Having this charity to sponsor made it all seem right for me.

The Gaviota coastline is right next to where I live.  It is one of the last pristine pieces of coastline in Southern California.  I have always loved this stretch of farmland, hills and ocean views between Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley.  Like all gorgeous places in the world, there are pressures to develop this land instead of leaving it as a treasure for all of us to love.  The Surfrider foundation is good at being a pain in the ass of the developers and our local County government.  Here is a link to their local website

So, please click on the link at the bottom of my information bar.  Have a laugh watching a slinky half naked girl suggestively waxing a surfboard and Body Glove will donate money to a good cause and it won’t cost either of us a dime!
