…Project 7 has great packaging?

Project 7 Water

Remember Project 7, the non-profit that was going to change the world one product at a time?

Well they’re well on their way to becoming a charitable force with the new line of waters and gums that are available now or coming soon to a store near you, and The Dieline has more information about the packaging and the decisions that went into each one.

Project 7 Gum

Featuring the seven missions of Project 7 on the labels, each package tells a little bit of the Project 7 story, and you can then buy the label that matches the cause that you care about most, or spread out the love to help out each cause equally.

It might not be much, but every little bit counts, so if you’re going to buy water and gum anyways, why not buy the water and gum that goes to help out those in need?

…Your face can set a record?

Guinness World Records

Want to help set a Guinness World Record?

Sorough Real Estate recently set the record for the world’s largest banner ad, and now they want to add your face to help raise money for charity.

Up to a million people can submit a photo of their face, and for each photo submitted, Sorough Faces Campaign will donate one dollar to the UAE Red Crescent. Then, when the million is collected, it will be used for the repair and reconstruction of the homes of the underprivileged in the UAE.

Ready to be a part of history?

Then head on over and upload your picture, because an opportunity like this won’t be around forever.

…Some calls should be blind?

A Blind Call

Have you ever forgotten to lock the keys on your cell phone, and then sat on your phone and unintentionally dialed your friend Aaron or Adam or Alexis?

Most people have, and a very interesting charity called A Blind Call wants to turn those unintentional dials into (somewhat) intentional donations.

Basically, you program a special number into your phone under the name ‘A Blind Call’, which should make that number first in your list. Then, the next time you accidentally dial out to your top A name, the cost of the call is donated to a charity for the blind.

It’s simple, it’s automatic, and it turns a common mistake into a charitable donation, so I just hope that it works its way to other countries so that I can sign up.

…Eddie Griffin crashed a Ferrari Enzo?

Ferrari Enzo Eddie Murphy Crash

Actor/Comedian (though apparently not /Driver) Eddie Griffin was rehearsing for a charity racing event today when he lost control of his FERRARI ENZO (yes, a $643,330 Ferrari Enzo, one of only 399 to ever see pavement) and crashed it into a barrier. Thankfully, and yet sadly, the entire thing was caught on tape, so click through if you have a strong stomach for automotive carnage (Eddie was unhurt, though the car can’t say the same).

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Carroll Shelby?

Supersnake

Supersnake Engine

Carroll Shelby might be the man behind the Cobra (both the modified Mustang versions past and present and the two seat race cars like the one above), the Daytona, the Series 1, and the Viper, but none of those cars are the reason for his being chosen as today’s tuner. No, the real reason Shelby was and is a tuner that few can match is his personal love for speed. Back in 1966, Carroll built two Supersnake cars, one for him and one for Bill Cosby. Bill later wrecked his, but who could blame him, the car had 800 horsepower in a setup that was already proving difficult to handle with far less horsepower. Carroll didn’t mind that though, he just wanted to go fast. Real fast. To make his Supersnake, Shelby took one of the 19 production Competition Cobras and added two Paxton superchargers to the 427 engine and mated it to a three-speed automatic transmission. It’s a simple formula: Big Engine + Pair of Superchargers = Fast Car, but Shelby did it with style and class like no other. Why build such a beast? In the words of Shelby himself:

    When I built this dual supercharged 427 Cobra in 1966, I wanted it to be the fastest, meanest car on the road. Forty years later, it will still kick the tail of just about anything in the world.

I think he succeeded. The car was put on the Barrett-Jackson auction block this year, and fetched a cool $5,000,000 for Shelby’s charity. Even today, the car is a stunner.
