Pass the Milk Please
A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend the "Great Gallon Give" kick-off and milk mustache campaign unveiling at the swanky W hotel in Los Angeles. It was a star-studded celebrity event with the current "Got Milk" mustache spokesperson, Rebecca Romijn, her hubby Jerry O'Connell, and the hilarious You-tube sensation, Anita Renfroe.
I love attending these events, especially when they are kid-friendly. They had faux ice-skating, a legos area and even a plant-a-seed station where the kids got to bring home their potted creations.
They also had a station where you could take your own milk-mustache photo with the whole family, print them and put it in our very own "Got Milk" photo frame.
I think my favorite part of the event was being asked to take part in a "Pass the Milk" internet campaign. They shot various people in front of a green screen and we would pass the milk from right to left. Sounds simple, right? It was a little more than meets the eye. "Hold the gallon up higher, now lower, now pause for a second, now pause for a second and look at the camera." I do this for a living and for some reason I got a little flustered. I think having my family and friends there watching put a little pressure, but still SO much fun and definitely my favorite part of the event.
The "Great Gallon Give" has pledged to help families in need by passing a virtual gallon of milk to friends on Facebook. For every gallon passed, they will donate $1 to Feeding America, up to $100,000. So please take a moment to pass the milk at Facebook.com/MilkMustace.
