If you tuned in to watch the World Series this year, you no doubt heard about Taco Bell’s Steal a Base. Steal a Taco. campaign. According to the promotion, everyone in America would get a free Seasoned Beef Crunchy Taco if a base was stolen by any player during the 2007 World Series. Well, thanks to Red Sox rookie center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury we all get to “steal a taco” tomorrow!
I’m making an appeal for like-hearted individuals to take this promotion a step further. Let’s steal a taco to feed the homeless!
If you live in an urban community like I do, you no doubt run across numerous homeless people on a daily basis. Maybe you pass by a few on your daily commute to work. Maybe you know of a street corner or park in your city where they tend congregate. Why not take advantage of Taco Bell’s free taco offer and use it as an opportunity to bless those in need of a meal?
Get the whole office in on the action and pool your free tacos. Stop at each nearby location on your way home form work. Map out your route and make it a family scavenger hunt to gather up as many free tacos as you can. Then seek out the homeless in your community and donate your plunder!
Steal a Taco. Feed the Homeless. Let’s use this opportunity to bless others. Spread the word!
Think outside the buzz…
Update: Whoa. It would appear that this little post has caught some media attention. A link to it appears on the Arts & Entertainment section of the Boston Globe’s website. My hits have subsequently gone through the atmosphere! Welcome visitors!
