Take a look at an email I got yesterday:
Hi, Deb (or should I call you "Mrs. Clean?")
We're contacting "domestic goddesses" and the like to let them know
that Mr. Clean is sponsoring a charity drive and we wondered if you'd
like to blog about it. How it works is that for every person that
visits this site
Home Made Simple: Mr. Clean Eraser
and submits an idea about how they use Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Mr.
Clean will donate $1 to the Hands On Network, a growing charity that
helps volunteers keep communities clean. Some of its affiliates are
working on Katrina-related projects right now.
Hands On Network
Thanks for your time.
I took a look at the website and while I didn't have any new hints to contribute myself because, you know, not so big on the house cleaning thing here
, I think it sounds like a good idea. They're not asking for money, just new ideas of how to use the Mr. Clean eraser, and if you've got 'em, the folks at P&G will make a donation. I like the Mr. Clean eraser, but the stuff I do with it is pretty ordinary - getting smudges off walls and so on.
So I'll post this in the hopes that some of you are better housekeepers than I am and will have some great ideas you can post to help raise money for the Hands On Network.
