Casting PAID Comcast Project in Boston this weekend, need great people!

Hey On Your Feet Project readers check out this opportunity!

"I'm Lindsay Colip and I work for Dan Bell Casting out of Los Angeles. We're coming to Boston this weekend to find sports fans (specifically Celtics and Bruins) for a PAID Comcast/Xfinity Project. We need die hard fans who either go to the games or watch the games regularly. If chosen, you'll make $500 and some people will even be given great seats at one of the upcoming Celtic or Bruins games. Interviews start this Thursday March 15th and go until Monday March 19th. I found your organization online and thought you might know a LOT of great people who might want to try out for this. It's super casual, you'd interview for about 5 minutes somewhere in the city (hopefully with a group of your friends or family that you watch the games with), and you simply tell us about your love for your team. If Comcast chooses you to participate, like we said, you make $500 and additionally might get amazing seats to a game of your choice. Please let me know if you have anyone that fits the bill. If there is ANY way you could post something on your site, awesome. If not, thank you for at least spreading the word. Hopefully we can find some great people!! I've attached a flyer. 

If interested, please email your name/age/contact number/your team/and when you are available to CELTICBRUINFANS@GMAIL.COM

Thanks! Lindsay

Strides Against Stigma - mental health volunteer opportunity

Strides Against Stigma is a “stride-a-thon” to raise awareness of depressive disorders and to build a community dedicated to erasing the stigma around depression. It will take place on April 28, 2012 at Boston University’s Nickerson Field.

The event website is

Strides Against Stigma is not your typical walk-a-thon. Instead of walking from point A to point B, participants set a personal goal for the number of strides they will commit to take against stigma. In the weeks before Strides Against Stigma, individuals and teams will gather sponsors and donations for their participation in Strides. On the day of the event, participants will meet at Boston University and will be given a pedometer and t-shirt. They can collect strides by walking on the track, but also while enjoying the live entertainment, raffles, free food, games, celebrity appearances, and performances. Come out for a fun day supporting a great cause! Lots of chances to WIN!

To register your team, or to make a donation, please visit Student registration is only $10, and general registration is $25. Kids under 12 participate for free.
