In conjunction with #GivingTuesday, Susan G. Komen Orange County® today debuted its second holiday jingle campaign on YouTube (http://ow.ly/rnZOW) to help raise funds for life-saving mammograms.

“Maybe you’ve heard. Maybe you’ve not heard. Last Friday my contract with WWE was terminated. Man… Terminated sounds so harsh, right? To me, it conjures up images of post-apocalyptic wars with robots, machine guns and atomic bombs. No thank you. Merriam-Webster defines terminate as ‘to come to an end in time.’ Okay.. That’s a little less dramatic. I can handle that. For the last 21 months, I’ve lived in Florida as a part of WWE’s Developmental System. That time has now come to an end.
