I am on the "Roll Call of Environmental Honour"! In 4 pt.!

Friday, June 29, 2007


Dear Blog Friends...

You may not know this about me (I willl come up with 7 more soon, Chloe, I mean it), but I am a fan of Formula 1 car racing. When I heard that Honda was promoting the environment and sustainability with this seasons' race car, I was thrilled. And then they gave the public the opportunity to make a pledge and have their name put on the car for one race. This weekend is my race. France. Watch your screens closely, as my name will be there in 4 pt font for all to see. That's right, folks, you heard it right: 4 pt!!

Here's the e-mail I received as proof...
(oh, and my new name is myearthdreamer. No spaces. Say it quickly.)


YOUR NAME IS ON THE CAR!

Dear myearthdreamer;

We have exciting news! Your name will be on the Earth Cars at this weekend’s Grand Prix in France. Your name will be in 4pt so it’s clearly visible with the naked eye close up, but our clever designers have applied them in such a way that our beautiful artwork still looks the same from a distance.We have put all the names in columns and like to call it our ‘Roll Call of Environmental Honour’.


All of your generous donations will be distributed at the end of the season and we will update you with news of the environmental projects and organisations that benefit as soon as details are available. We’ll also be launching a brand new website later in the season that will have many more exciting interactive features and regularly updated news about myearthdream.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your enthusiasm for the myearthdream project. We have been overwhelmed by the response and are grateful for all your letters and emails of support, but mostly we’re grateful for the collective difference we’re making to the planet.


That’s all for now. We hope that you’re as excited as we are to know that your names will be racing in the rest of the 2007 season Grands Prix with Jenson and Rubens

    So, how exactly, as this sleek and slick Formula One racecar burns fossil fouels at speeds over 220 kmph and leaves three inches of tire rubber on multiple corners of the track, is the environment sustained?

    Of course Crag; but go to their site and see what they are doing with the money they are raising. Their message is symbolic, and better than nothing. I'll take it.

    Oh my,I'm so impressed! That's really cool :)
    To be honest, I knew you like F1 already but this is exciting news. I don't think I'll be watching but if I catch a little bit of it, I'll be looking for myearthdreamer :)
