Your local media and your Fund Raising efforts PLEASE READ

Rally North America will begin our Rally DIXIE 2012 Press Release Blitz shortly. We have amassed over 700 media contacts in the cites and town that we will be visiting and will be adding to the list as we get closer to the event.

It is Highly recommended that our Rally Teams reach out to their local media to let them know about the adventure you are to take part in. A scavenger hunt taking place in 5 States, covering 1300+ Miles in 3 days to benefit a charity is not something people do everyday and we had several teams get their stories on local TV or published in newspapers last year. We are hoping to see many more this year.

If you or your press contact need any information regarding the event itself or Rally North America from Myself or Scott please contact us. If you do not please remember our Sponsors (they all make donations to our charity) and make sure to let people know where they can donate to your teams fund raising efforts. Best of luck in your efforts.

Well someone has to lead the the way.......so It will be me. I finished my interview today and I think everything went very well. Let's hope it turns into some nice donations to ACP. Once the story is published I will get a copy and post it here.

Is there any way we can get a breakdown of where the 80 teams are coming from, geography wise? I'm working on a flyer type hand out I can use to help solicit donations and it'd be extremely helpful and informative to know which states (and countries even) we have teams coming from.

Telling a potential sponsor their decal could be on 80 cars traveling 1300+ miles thru 5 states is impressive in and of itself, but if we could let them know they’ll also be on the cars well ahead of time from their home states of (fill in all the blanks here), to the rally starting line to the finish line and then back to their home states would be even better.

Second round of Media is going out today to many of the towns we will be visiting. If you have not contacted your local Newspaper regarding your upcoming journey now would be a good time to do so.

is there a way we can get a non-profit letter or something of the like to perhaps encourage business to donate given it'd be a bona fide charitable donation? would perhaps the receipt from first giving be enough? if it's not possible I'll tell them that it should be enough that it's helping people :D

Well you are soliciting a direct donation so they would get a receipt from ACP and not RNA. I don't think it could be any clearer.

Best of luck! I know ACP can provide a 503c form if they need one.

I've been contacted by several teams that are working with local media to get coverage for our event and our charity. I wanted to personally thank them for their efforts and let them know that I look forward to reading the stories as they come out over the next several days.
