CPR Promotional Check-Up - Jul 6, 2012
July 6, 2012
Have you ever noticed that when a Principal shaves his head because his students hit their reading goal, the press will show up? It's like diaper crawls; find a reason to shave your head and TV will show up. Which leads me to a heart congrats to Sarah Pepper and Ivan from Hot 95.7 in Houston where she hit her goal of raising $50,000 for leukemia and shaved her head.
Now, they had some trouble, surprisingly, with press, so Sarah strong armed them: We couldn't get any news people to get back to me so I said on the air, local news won't call us back to cover this amazing event. So I am leaving it in your hands. Call them today and ask them why whey won't cover this. ABC said they were flooded with calls asking them why they didn't care about kids or cancer. There photographer was here at 5:45 am! The event started at 7:30 :)
I took my niece to the Minnesota State Fair last year. She spent the majority of the time texting her friends. I was THIS close to grabbing it and tossing it off the Sky Ride. From Bubba at Star in Pittsburgh. Steal this: "Put Your Phone Away And Play Day"! They get $X amount off a ride all day package if they download the pledge from StarPittsburgh.com. They will be scanned (checked) for cell phones when they enter the pavillion. At the end of the day since they gave up their phones for a day....all their names go in a hat and the winner gets a free Cricket smart phone with free service for a year.
Fill It Forward
From Dan Matthews at WOW Country in Boise: WOW Country 104.3 has begun to Fill it Forward. For the next two weeks, the WOW 104.3 staff will be all over the Treasure Valley to surprise people at the pump and pay for their gas. The only catch is that the lucky recipient of the Free Gas must then promise to do one good deed for someone else. Dan Matthews (yours truly) kicked things off by surprising someone early this morning on air with WOW 104.3 morning duo, Randy & Alana. Details and video here.
A Contest With Class
One winner at Fly 92 in Albany wins tickets for their entire class to see Demi Lovato.
