I usually don't post too many press releases verbatim on my blog, preferring keep things simple and provide my readers with only the most relevant information, but when this release came into my inbox I just had to laugh - the gang at Nail Polish Canada definitely have a great sense of humour!
Oh, and this is for a "good cause" - a chance at free nail polish! Oh, I mean, a chance to help out a sad and lonely nail polish that's just waiting to be adopted into a good home! :)
Read the press release and then go apply to save a polish!
What it says in the press release: (I've done some minor edits to this)
Adoptapolish.org announces the world’s first adoption drive for in need nail polish, available for US and Canadian applicants.
Every day, thousands of nail polishes are abandoned or abused. They are not sticky or old, they're fine new polishes, stuck on a shelf because they're forgotten or out of season. All they desire is to be used, and maybe taken for a night on the town in return.
"We have so many polishes who need a good family to take them in." said AdoptAPolish.org executive director Nikki Smith. "All it takes is filling out an application form describing how you can provide a better life for one of our in need nail polishes. We select the best application and take care of all the expenses, delivering your newly adopted polish directly to your door.”
One current nail polish, Charleston, held back tears well describing his life, "I spent two years of my life stacked in a dark room crammed together with thousands of others just like me, hundreds pressing down on my shoulders at any given time. I’m a shimmer and I have never seen sunlight in my life."
Please don’t let the agony go on any longer than it has to. The first round of adoptions closes December 31st.
