I’m not a billboard owner or renter but I have an idea and I need help to make it happen. I’m applying for a grant from Pepsi (www.refresheverything.com) to create a billboard campaign in major cities across the country. The billboards will have an extremely large single word like Inspire, Encourage, Motivate, Amaze, etc and then small underneath will be Kids. That’s it. No ads. I’d like to have the Twitter account address at the bottom but even that’s not necessary. We don’t want to encourage people to text while driving. Need advice on this.
I think these simple messages will remind people they can make a difference in a child’s life, even in the smallest way. And having the one word big enough anyone will see it, even if they don’t see the small one, can make a difference.
This idea was inspired by the God billboards. They certainly have people talking and paying attention to billboards. I don’t know everything that’s involved in creating a billboards campaign but I’m willing to learn and do whatever I can. One thing about these particular billboards, they can be anywhere and they’ll make a difference.
People vote on the projects and the ones with the most votes wins. So we’ll be doing everything we can to tell people about it. We’ve set up a Twitter, Facebook and blog about the campaign to spread the word, among others. Any donations will be listed with information on how to contact the contributors, of course.
If you can help with billboards, sign design or anything else, that would be so wonderful. I’m not affiliated with anyone, its just me and an idea that’s been with me for several years. Now, Pepsi is offering ordinary people a chance to do something to make a difference so I hope, with help, I can.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I’ll be happy to answer. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
Love and blessings to you and yours,
