We need some creative help for an awesome project we are zeroing in on. I am in the planning stages of a very long bicycle ride to raise awareness and funds for International Orphan Support, a non-profit that I help lead. Click here for our website: iorphan.cc.
The idea is to ride around Lake Okeechobee, a trail of 120 miles. This would be a two day ride with a night’s stay somewhere in one of the lakeside towns. I would open this ride to my biking friends, and we would find sponsors for a per-mile or a flat amount donation. The ride will probably take place in October (date to be determined within the week). The money collected will go to feed hungry children.
So, creative thinkers, here is what we need:
A theme or title. Keep in mind, it is Lake Okeechobee or “Lake O”. Orphans will be the beneficiaries. The ride is 120 miles. Suggestions?
A logo and design: We will be making t shirts and we’ll need a graphic for promotions. Any designers out there willing to throw around some ideas?
Best way to get the word out: I am no marketer, so any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Administrative support: We will need assistance with communications and organization, as well as social networking help.
Corporate sponsors: Do you know of a corporation or local business that would consider a supportive donation? Now, would you be our representative and ask them?
So, you think you’re creative? Imagine it – your creativity can save the life of a child! Let’s hear your ideas. And pass this along to you buddies, as well.
Remember, this is a pro-bono gig. We do not want to spend any money we raise paying for services on this end. But it is definitely a rewarding and feel-good project that will save lives!
All donations are tax deductible.
We can use lots of help. I’d love to hear from you with any ideas! Leave any and all of your ideas as a comment or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
