This week Rock The Reactors reached out to Sarah Haynes, founder of the Spitfire Agency, a self-proclaimed green PR firm which has worked with hundreds of famous musicians, "so-called" green companies and non-profit organizations, currently "greening" the Virgin Festival in Maryland, in a failed attempt to enlist their participation in the shut down of Indian Point. This was her reply:
Thanks for your note. We are an agency that gets hired to create events and/or create event marketing. When you are ready to hire an agency for a specific project that can be boiled down to a who-what-where-when-why, that's the best time to call. We need a much more specific call to action, and a rough budget, in order to get involved.
Keep up the good work!
In otherwords, "Drop dead, we're only in it for the money!"
And this is a woman who has worked with Lydia Lunch, Julia Butterfly Hill, Woody Harrelson, Jello Biafra, Living Tree Paper, Ralph Nader & Winona LaDuke... Scary!

(Notice how few pro-bono jobs they've actually taken... In fact, the "only" pro-bono job they've ever done is Burning Man... Makes you wonder, doesn't it... about this "green" capitalism thing... leaving the planet burning with most of the job undone!)
