"Don't tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results."-- George S. Patton
I am getting some BRILLIANT ideas. I'm not surprised though. I love being able to come here for ideas, support, and friendship. I'm blown out of the water by all the ideas you are coming up with. Simple ideas that never crossed my mind. Ideas I intend to implement.
For instance, Franchesca suggested...
"...you could ask all of us babylost mamas (and whoever else would like to) to put a post about this cause weekly all on the same day of the week, so people and NEW followers would be constantly reminded of this cause. We could then ask in that post for the followers of our blogs to copy and paste the post into their blogs thus reaching a LOT more people? "
Okay, I read this and had a "Duh, why didn't I think of that" moment...
So, I am going to write a post sharing Wyatt's story and how I intend to change legislation here in Tennessee. Each Wednesday, I will update it with how many more signatures were received the past week, along with any new progress we've made. I will ask everyone to copy my post and post it to your blog. I will also add a MckLinky where you can link up after you've added my post to your blog. Each week you participate, you will be entered into my "Wednesday's for Wyatt" giveaway. I should have everything ready to go this coming Wednesday, so please be on the look out for my very first Wednesday's for Wyatt giveaway.
For this first giveaway, you will be entering to win a handmade Buckeye necklace that was so kindly donated by Kristi, a dear woman who wanted to help us raise awareness to have Wyatt's life (and every other baby's life) recognized. Thank you so much Kristi for your kind offer.
I've created, yet another button for this. Buttons are so fun! I've added it to my right sidebar. But if you don't want to go that far, here it is:
Other ideas I've gotten like creating a cause on facebook for people to join, calling the radio station to get a slot, billboards... they are all being looked into.
I will let you know as I continue to implement your ideas. Don't forget, you can still post your ideas for a chance to win My First Giveaway until October 18th! Make sure to leave your idea comments under this post instead of the one your reading now.
