As I'm sure most of you know, Taco Bell had a promotion that if a player stole a base in the World Series, everyone would win a free taco at a certain time. Apparently that time comes tomorrow.

Someone came up with a pretty cool idea. If you go to this website (http://www.donateyourtaco.com/), you can donate your free taco to help the relief efforts for the California wildfires. The person (people?) who came up with this is hoping that Taco Bell will donate the equivalent value of all the donated tacos to the Red Cross.

Taco Bell blows, so you might as well help out a worthy cause and try to get Taco Bell to donate some money. And even if you do claim your free crappy taco, well, they don't know so fill out the damn form anyway.

And just how are they going to feed all the illegal construction workers pouring into the area without free tacos?:?:

As of early last night, Esordi said 1,000 people were willing to part with their taco for a good cause.

“Thanks to the generosity of the public and corporate America,” Red Cross has already met its fund-raising goal of up to $15 million, spokesman Mary Havell said. And while she encourages people to donate toward future disasters, she stressed, “We don’t need tacos.”

WBZ interviewed a guy that plans to sell his taco on EBay because it comes from the Taco Bell nearest Fenway

What scares me is SOMEBODY will bid on it

Now we have reached the level of the absurd

Every TV station in town is showing Jacoby Ellsbury live at the Taco Bell at BU getting his free taco :tongue:

Is this a scam to collect email addresses? Just that part about my email "validating my identity to Taco Bell", yeah, I don't really see that. Especially since I can still go down and get a free taco, not that I want one anyway

Pepsi no longer owns taco bell, pizza hut, etc. They are owned by Yum!, with that said, Yum! can afford to donate a buck or two.

An impromptu signing session proved to be a surprising scenario for thousands of fans waiting in line at the Taco Bell beneath Warren Towers when Ellsbury, who stole second base in Game 2 of the World Series, made an appearance at 3:45 p.m. to pick up his meal.

Ellsbury, who entered through the parking garage to get his free taco and sign Red Sox memorabilia, won fans the free taco promotion when he swiped the base.

"He came in, he got his taco, said he loves Taco Bell and we said we'd love to have him come," said Dan Benson, the head of the Taco Bell branch. "This was the closest [Taco Bell] on his route back to the stadium."
