I Need Your Help!

September 16th, 2010 | Posted by john in General

I know that through most of the year, I ask people for some sort of help with donations to help raise money for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure.  This time is a little different, I’m still asking for help, but this time it is a little brain power help that I need!

So here’s the situation.  As most of you know, I’m the Energizer® Keep Going® Blogger for the DFW 3-Day.  Some may also know that as the result of one of my fund raisers earlier this year, I have promised my donors that I will wear a bra all three days of the walk.  Everything is great except for one thing.  Energizer sent me a pretty cool t-shirt so that I could wear it on the walk so that while I’m walking people would know that I’m the Keep Going Blogger.  Good stuff and I am very happy at the prospect of being able to wear it.  The problem is that when I wear the bra you can’t see the logo on the shirt and to be honest, I’ll probably end up wearing only the bra and not a shirt.  I still want people to know that I am the Keep Going Blogger, it’s something I’m very proud of, but I also need to honor the promise I made to donors.  This is where you come in!

Please send me suggestions on how I can visually promote that I’m the Keep Going Blogger (using the logo that you can see on the right side of this page) without changing the fact that I need to wear just the bra.  The only thing I have tried so far is an at home t-shirt transfer kit and the curve of the bra just made it look like a cheap sticker when I put the logo on it.  So other than that, any suggestion is fair game.  If you have an idea, click “Contact” at the top of this page and send me an e-mail with your suggestion!  If your suggestion is chosen then you will win a 60Miles t-shirt, one of the shirt styles is pictured in this post, but any of the shirts at http://www.cafepress.com/offensive1/7285557 can be chosen if you win.  If your idea is the winning idea and other people have suggested it, I’ll do a random drawing to award the prize, but I will mention everyone’s name that suggested it on a post on 60miles3Days.com

Thanks for all your help!  Get those creative juices flowing!!  If you have multiple great ideas, please feel free to submit multiple entries, but try to keep one idea per mail just so I can sort out the individual ideas easier.

  • So very many ideas!

    First and foremost, I think bra cups are lovely place for product endorsement. You could do one logo per cup! You could also make use of your butt, although as you are switching to a lumbar pack, that may not work. If I recall, you were also partial to a hat in Boston – perhaps something with a logo and bunny ears? You could also carry a large flag or banner of some sort indicating your KGB status. You could also order temporary tattoos of the KGB logo that you could cover yourself in (this is my favorite idea). And, of course, you could just wear the shirt and have the Energizer Bunny and Mug wear the bras.

    Or you could embrace the KGB-ness of the whole thing and stealthily hide a KGB logo on your person and reward any one who happens to locate it with a prize.

    Good luck!

    I love Kristen’s temporary tattoo idea! Do a big one on your upper back/shoulders between the bra straps. Also little ones on your face would be good.

    I was going to suggest having a hat made, or perhaps an applique of some kind on your pack. (I actually might have an Energizer cap you can borrow if you like, but it’s not pink.)

    Something on the leg of shorts/pants might work, too. (Like college gear.)

    You could also see if Energizer has decals for sunglasses, a la New Balance.

    Finally, you could have the logo put on a cape and be Super KGB!

    Can’t wait to hear/see what you decide. (I’m still voting for the tattoos.)

    I like the cape idea. Super Hero!

    The tattoo across the shoulder blade is also a good idea. Might be the most comfortable idea.

    Wish I was walking in Dallas to see you. My best friend is walking DFW (Grace Clark) and I am walking Atlanta. Have enjoyed your blog.
