"a stainless steel canteen"!

The Freakwenter got mail!
Hi Freakwenter,

Thanks for your blog post on the opportunity cost of philanthropy. You made some excellent points! I was just wondering if you ever considered the merits of doing both- investing money in a profitable and environmentally and socially responsible cause? I'm working with a progressive bank that has recently been endorsed by Van Jones (author of the bestseller The Green Collar Economy) because of their 35 year commitment to environmental responsibility and community development. Because of your blog's focus on the economy, I thought this might be of interest to you.

We would like to send you a complimentary copy of Van Jones' book and a stainless steel canteen. Please let me know if you are interested.

Dear Green Collar,

Thanks for your interest in promoting your stuff on my blog. I'm impressed that you care enough to write to a blog whose readers probably spend less time reading the content than the author spends writing it. You must be very grass roots!

And thank you for the very generous offer of a free tree-hugger book and a stainless steel canteen! I've always wanted a stainless steel canteen! My plastic one keeps leaching dangerous chemicals into my blood and will lead to my early death. Just kidding. I don't have any use for a stainless steel canteen because I live in cyberspace. Moreover, I don't have a physical address, so it would be difficult for you to deliver it. But if you can figure out a way to email me the book, I just might review it for you.
