It’s April and amongst all the Earth Day and Earth Month-related events, Coca-Cola is asking Facebook users to give up their profile pics in order to raise money for Ocean Conservancy. For each Facebook user that participates by changing their profile pic as required, Coca-Cola is donating $1 to the conservancy, whom they’ve partnered with for 15 years. The conservancy is dedicated to getting rid of litter from our oceans and waterways.
Prior to tomorrow’s Final Four games, Coke Zero will be hosting a massive pre-show via their Facebook Page. Beginning at 1:45 PM EDT, there will be a pep rally that will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest and feature “cheerleaders, mascots and bands from the NCAA Men’s Final Four teams”. Daughtry will also sing following the pre-game pep rallies. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself!!!
