PETA just unleashed its very beautiful, very patriotic, and very naked anti-fur PSA starring Olympian Amanda Beard. The controversial PSA has received international attention and a ton of press.
Actress and activist Mia Farrow is Web-casting her own "Darfur Olympics" alternative opening ceremony from a refugee camp on the Sudan border with her nonprofit Dream for Darfur in order to bring attention to the role China plays in Sudan's economics and politics.
Which campaign had the best use of the Olympics to gain the world's attention to their cause? Comment below on your thoughts.

I went on Warped Tour last year, and learned a lot about what young adults think of the nonprofit I work for (peta2). It was an amazing experience with incredible, direct feedback- far surpassing any survey or study that comes past my desk about youth.
Nothing beats talking to your prime demographic in their prime element for 10 hours a day. I admit, it does help that I look a bit younger than I actually am- gotta get this field research will I still can!
The best part of going on the tour is that I get to evaluate first hand how peta2's outreach is doing. I also get to scout out what other nonprofits (and more importantly- other corporations) are doing to get the youth's eyes and ears.
So for the next few days I will be M.I.A. in the blogging world, but will make sure to tell you all the juicy details when I get back.
