Worried about the spill in the Gulf? Worried about your own personal spill inside your partner? No problem, one company has “cum” up with the solution to both.
While BP Oil struggles to keep its prophylactic cap on and clean up its mess, Practice Safe Policy (the company behind the Obama, McCain, and Palin condoms during the last presidential election) have a unique solution to the Deepwater Horizon Spill: Oil Spill Condoms. Sales of the condom run $30 for a 10-pack or $5 individually.
“We created Oil Spill Condoms after seeing a number of reports throughout the media that only 4 million dollars had been raised to help with the relief efforts along the Gulf. After seeing hours and hours of this catastrophe unfold throughout the media, we decided that we needed to help bring attention to this catastrophe the only way we knew how; by putting it on a condom,” said Practice Safe Policy founder Benjamin Sherman.
“Our goal is to raise $50,000 to help with the Gulf Coast relief effort. After reviewing the charities that are involved in helping the Gulf, we found that the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund is the organization that can help make the most use of our donations,” Sherman said.
“In the short-term, the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund will make emergency grants to nonprofit organizations helping the victims of the oil spill. In the long-term they will help address the long-term economic, environmental, cultural effects of the disaster, and strengthen coastal communities against future environmental catastrophes by investing in solutions,” Sherman said.
The Greater New Orleans Foundation's Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund supports fishermen and their families in the Plaquemines, St. Bernard, Lower Jefferson, Terrebonne, and Lafourche parishes.
