It's an easy way to reach hundreds of thousands of people
all at once and might even score you a free T-Shirt or
beverage holder emblazoned with the station call letters!
(Flirt with the host a little and you mind even end up
walking away with some free tickets, too!)
you are on a College campus, set up a booth and hand out
free citrus to your scurvy brethren!
to your Academic advisor - Organizing and implementing a
community outreach program (even for just one day a year)
can often be submitted as course equivalency for an easy
Elective Course Credit! I actually know a guy who

Green on May 2nd!
Throw on a lime green shirt,
blouse or necktie and wear it to the office. When you
get there tell your co-workers that you are doing it to
support a cause! You will be idolized by
your peers as the type of person who is not only stylish,
but also willing to go out of his way to help others.
That's the kind of energetic go-getter that ends up getting
the corner office and
the company car...
gets someone's attention faster than free food!
Instead of the usual Donuts,
why not stop off at the grocery store on the way to work and
pick up a Key Lime Pie, or mini-tarts, or lemon squares for
the company break room.

calories in each donut!

but halfway through it we got distracted by "Guitar Hero"
and never got anything put down on paper.

Day or Jimmy Buffet into performing it I will personally buy
you free beer until you pass out.
