Donate Your Taco:
Taco Bell Offers Free Tacos for America.
"In a promotion Taco Bell promised a FREE taco to everyone in America if a player steals a base in the 2007 MLB World Series. The other night Jacoby Ellsbury of the Boston Red Sox did just that.
Now America gets their free taco.
"The history of donateyourtaco.com comes from... oh wait, there is no history... it came from the idea of more than 300,000,000 people lining up next week for a free taco, courtesy of the most talked about fast food joint on the planet... or so we would expect. Consider this our very own run for the border.
"Instead of railing against corporate America while trying to calculate how Taco Bell is going to make money off this enterprise (soda anyone? second taco, perhaps?) we thought of all the non-taco eaters who won't be able to squeeze in a fourth meal on Tuesday afternoon and reap the benefits of Jacoby Ellsbury's 90 feet of ground beef glory.
Whether you're a vegetarian or just can't get away from your desk to collect your prize, we know you want to help... and we're hoping Taco Bell does too.
"So... if you can't stomach a taco between the hours of 2:00 and 5:00 next Tuesday, October 30, all we're asking is that you send us your hometown and email. What we're asking from Taco Bell is that they donate the equivalent value of unclaimed tacos to the Red Cross relief efforts for the California wildfires."
