In my opinion, it's a no-brainer for forward-thinking businesses interested in marketing their company to a captive audience
Snellville, GA (PRWEB) April 23, 2009
John Lawson, Founder and CEO of the online urban clothing store, 3rd Power Outlet, and author of business blog, ColderICE.com, today announced the launch of the ColderICE "Chest to Save Breasts" Charity Auction (http://colderice.com/Charity). The online auction, running from April 27 - May 4, 2009 will give businesses an opportunity to obtain key brand real-estate at the eCommerce Merchant Summit, June 3, 2009 in Atlanta. Lawson is using his chest as a billboard for the highest bidder. The auction is running on eBay Giving Works with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Breast Cancer research.
"In my opinion, it's a no-brainer for forward-thinking businesses interested in marketing their company to a captive audience," said John Lawson. "We're also lining up corporate sponsors that will pledge a minimum of $100 to Breast cancer. I will be making daily videos wearing the shirts that business sponsors send to me. These videos are online and shared for weeks, months and years to come. The opportunities are endless and timeless."
During the week of April 27 - May 4, leading industry bloggers, radio hosts and podcasters will be continually promoting the event, granting additional exposure to each participating sponsor. The action will be ending with a live show hosted by Auction Wally on the evening of May 4th. For more information about the auction, please visit http://ColderICE.com/Charity.
