Donations are no longer being accepted. We raised approximately $1400 for the ads.

Thanks you all for your generosity and support.

Mike


I have contacted the Lansing State Journal to place an ad in the "Local/State" section of the paper to say "Thank You" to the employees at the Craft Centre from all of us.

The Journal has volunteered to help do the creative parts of what the ad will look like and will work with me to get the clearest message possible. I'm gonna have to trust them. The lady was emotionally moved to jump in with us and committed same from her counterpart that will actually place the ad. She said that this is important and that they will help all they can.

The ad will run on both Monday, Feb 27 and Thursday, Mar 2 to coincide with the Fanatics tours. Because of the nature of our visit and the reason for the ad, the Journal is contributing matching funds for whatever space we have funding to buy. They have a community service fund especially for this purpose.

Our portion for a 4" by 2" (both days) is ~$205 total
Our portion for a 4" by 3" (both days) is ~$310 total

You can see where I'm going with this.......

The deadline for contributions is TODAY (Thursday) at 4:00 PM EST.




How big of an ad can we get funding for in 24 hours?

I have made a request for the cost of a half and a full page ad. Will post it when I get it.

Place your $ committments on this thread and I'll keep a list. 22 hours from now, at 4pm EST, I'll forward the dollar amount to the Lansing State Journal. That will set the size of the ad. I have linked paypal with my work e-mail address. Send your paypal contibutions using my work e-mail address [email protected].

OK Boys (and Girls too!!!!).... It's up to you, now....

Mike

If the 157 people on here now would pony up $10 each we could get a hell of an ad. Come on people. I am throwing the gauntlet down. Its time to step up!

Mike -
First of all you done good with the negotiating. Any time you can get a 1/2 price ad in any newspaper...well it's just way cool :cool

I would like a High Res PDF of the ad when it is done. See if that can happen when you talk to them. Also - Any parts and pieces The Journal Needs to create the ad, I probably have. Have them contact me directly if they need anything. ([email protected])

Put me down for $25. PayPal works for me....you will see it in the AM

Thanks again

AD contribution

Hey Mike: Do you think ASC should be included in the AD?! They had,as you know alot to do with the design of our SSR'S! Just a thought! Maybe the CEO might
soften his stand on the chin spoiler design release?! Just kidding about the last part:):lol Hal (kinda)

Thanks Hal

I'll get them in there somehow too. Although we are there to visit LCC, they had a lot to do with our trucks. It's hard to be politically correct on all sides, but we will do our best.

When you make a committment on this thread, please sign your post with your first name. It will help me identify the paypal monies.

Thanks all for your support.

Back in a while,

Mike
