The Sunny Challenge Event

Philadelphia * Boston * DC * Pittsburgh

FX invites you and your friends to take The Sunny Challenge!

Have you ever wondered how far you can toss a ham? Or how fast you can run in a pair of Speedos? Wonder no more!! Your friends at FX want to give you that chance at the inaugural staging of The Sunny Challenge. Inspired by the exploits and misadventures of your favorite characters from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Sunny Challenge is a day of offbeat games, cold beverages, snacks and overall frivolity. Or a less fancy word meaning fun!
All attendees will have the chance to show off their pseudo-athletic chops in the following events:
Mac’s Lucky Hockey Puck Shot
Don your black duster, practice your karate and see how many pucks you can shoot through a small hole in a hockey net to rack up points. You may not have 20,000 screaming fans watching you, but don’t crack under the pressure!
Jersey Shore Dunk Tank
Remember how mean the waitress was to Charlie on the Jersey Shore? We do too! So now is your chance to get revenge on Charlie’s behalf. Participants will have three tries to “sink” The Waitress. You’ll get more points the farther away you try, so don’t be a wuss and throw it from the kid’s line!
Charlie’s Garbage Dive
No one will ever find more treasure in trash cans, dumpsters and road side ditches than Charlie Kelly, but now is your chance to one-up your friends in trash picking. Cans will be set up and filled with “trash” (don’t worry, it’s not that kind of trash) and inside each one will be 10 different items for participants to find in a 30 second time period. The more things you find the more points you score, so get digging!
Frank’s Rum Ham Toss
Do we really need to explain this? Grab the rum ham, wind up and toss it as far as you can. Now, how hard was that?
Dennis’ Speedo Relay Race
Dennis Reynolds defines the male form. Well, that’s what he tells himself in the mirror each morning. You may not fill out a speedo quite as well he thinks he does, but you will have the chance to see how you look wearing one on top of your pants while running and stopping along the way to put on various other articles such as flippers, goggles, a swim cap and “swimmies” in the shortest time possible. Yeah, it ain’t gonna be pretty but it sure will be fun.
Plus! All participants in each city will be entered to win an “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” Premiere Viewing Party* on 10-11-12. One winner per city.
Trophies will also be awarded to the top participants in each The Sunny Challenge event.
Not in the mood to compete? No problem! Stop on by to get an exclusive t-shirt and watch your friends make fools of themselves…..umm we mean fight for the chance to be dubbed the champion of The Sunny Challenge. Must be 21 or older with valid ID to attend and/or compete.

Don't Let the KKK Adopt a Highway!

Started by: Nioshii Wilde, Atlanta, GA
SponsoredTweets referral badgeThe Ku Klux Klan (KKK) is an organization intent on promoting white supremacy through terrorism and political violence. Throughout their 150+ years of activity, they've organized and carried out lynchings, bombings, cross burnings and actively campaigned against the Civil Rights Movement and desegregation. Anyone who does not fit their narrow definition of being a "true American"- white and Christian- is a target of their violence, including African Americans, Catholics, Jews, immigrants, communists, etc. Their death toll numbers are in the thousands and the damages they have inflicted on our country are immeasurable.
And now, the Ku Klux Klan wants to "adopt" a highway in Georgia.
The "adopt a highway" program allows local civic-minded organizations to help clean up stretches of highways in return for free advertising along the road. Meaning the KKK would be able to advertise their organization and increase their membership on public land, for free.
Don't Let the KKK Adopt a Highway
Harley Hanson, the leader of the Klan's Realm of Georgia who filed the application for the Klan, says: "I love my race. Does that make me wrong? I'm proud to be white."
As a Georgia resident, I do not want a highway funded by taxpayer dollars to become an advertising site for an organization that has murdered, maimed and terrorized American people for 150 years.  The KKK is not a civic-minded organization; they are a domestic terror group. 
"What's next, are we going to let Neo-Nazis or the Taliban or al-Qaida adopt highways?" asks State Rep. Tyrone Brooks.
And I agree. So now I'm calling on the Georgia Department of Transportation to reject the KKK's application to adopt a highway. Terrorists have no place on the sides of our highways.

Petition to Boycott VH1's Basketball Wives and Reality Star, Evelyn Lozada

Disappointed viewers are using their voice to speak up against the BULLYING and VIOLENCE (shown on VH1's "Basketball Wives") and they are being heard loud and clear!
FINALLY!! After 4 seasons of drama & nonsense, viewers are FED UP with the foolery that takes place on VH1's "Basketball Wives." And now there is a petition to boycott the show AND it's bad-tempered cast member "Evelyn Lozada". But it doesnt stop there- they want to boycott Evelyn Lozada all together and is also boycotting her new spinoff show with her fiance, Chad Ochocinco. 
Star Jones from "The View" (who is a respected TV personality) is disgusted with the show and is gathering up support of powerful women to get the show stopped! Also, famous TV talk show host, Wendy Williams stands behind the petition and has already signed it, calling The Basketball Wives...TRASHY!
SponsoredTweets referral badgeViewers were already upset at the BBW's behavior, describing the cast members as childish and an embarrassment to WOMEN. But this season, when Evelyn and her assistant tried to jump co-star Jennifer and Evelyn jumping wildly on top of a table, just to try to get a "lick in" is when viewers got FED UP and said, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!" And in just 2 hours, the viewer ratings dropped significantly from 1.7 Million to 800,000 views. 
Here is an excerpt from the petition (that is now circulating the internet):
“Evelyn Lozada is a bully. The violence on ‘Basketball Wives’ is horrible and disgraceful.  This is not a hate petition against Eveyln Lozada. We simply will not support violence. It hurts to see violence amongst women on television for entertainment purposes. It is not OK for women to hit each other on TV.
Boycott "Basketball Wives" & "Evelyn Lozada": Don't support Evelyn Lozada's spinoff show "EV And OCHO" on VH1 
Just about every altercation and argument on the show has involved Evelyn in some way, shape or form. From the yelling match on the season 4 premier against her former bestie, Jen, to the table climbing and hair pulling in the last couple of episodes, the woman has a problem for reals."
Star Jones took it to twitter and expressed/ tweeted her feelings about the show:
“It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH."
“About to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media.”
Star Jones then tweets, defending Jennifer's decision to call the cops (which I also felt that she should do)... 
"And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn't have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS! You NEVER give up your right not to have your ‘person’ intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity.
…little black girls deserve more than what we're giving! It sickens me when young sis think that behavior is acceptable. U can't get a REAL JOB acting like an animal."
With over 29k+ signatures on the petition, big companies such as Burger King and Summer's Eve, pulled their ads from the TV Show. I'm sure they didnt want consumers to think they support bullying and violence the show was promoting.

I admit, I signed the petition too! Whether or not the reality stars were acting "EXTRA" to boost ratings, their actions are sending one message to viewers- that it's okay to lay your hands on someone who makes you mad and it's ok to pick on people. How can we tell kids that bullying is wrong if GROWN UPs are bullying too? 

If the petition goes ignored, it will have most thinking that celebrities have special rights to bully others. If our voices are heard, it will send a message that BULLYING and VIOLENCE will not be tolerated and those who are guilty, will suffer the consequences of their actions- even celebrities.

What are your thoughts? 

PRs Needed for Pro-bono Work for Afghan Women's Writing Project & Wardford Foundation

Hi everyone.

There has been so many inquiries from those who want to work with our company and put their skills to work. Unfortunately, we are not hiring and have a long intern waiting list. HOWEVER, we do have leads that I hope you would be interested in.

Because our company limits itself to so many probono projects each year, we are unable to assist with the following great programs and hope that you can volunteer your services to them:
  1. Afghan Women's Writing Project- AWWP pairs women in Afghanistan with professional women writers (here in the States) for secure online writing workshops.
  2. The Warford Foundation -a non-profit organization (registered in Maryland) that was created to assist military widows and single mothers through financial assistance in their pursuit of successfully completing nursing program

Afghan Women's Writing Project
A fellow PR recently had to step down from her volunteer position as their PR advisor so we hope someone out there can help. This will be a great opportunity for new PRs who wants to build their resume and credibility. It's really an amazing and well-ran organization.

Website: www.awwproject.org 


The former PR has helped out in the following areas so this will give you an idea of where to pick up where she left off: 

  • press outreach
  • responding to reporter inquiries
  • and developing overall communications strategy
If you're interested or even just curious about how you might lend a hand, please contact Susan Solomon at <sussol@gmail.com>.

The Warford Foundation
They are also seeking the same scope of work. Because this foundation is fairly new, they will probably also need the following:
  • a media kit
  • an updated press release
  • someone who is able to assist with fundraisers and events
  • etc... 
I think the best candidate to assist them should be someone who is familiar with military and military media- to get them in their publications and can get them involved at military events (at least set up a table with their info). 

Here is a recent article our company has written for them: http://alistprfirm.blogspot.com/2012/05/retired-soldiermother-helps-military.html

If you are interested in volunteering your services for The Warford Foundation, please email  info@thewarfordfoundation.org

Please share this information to any PRs you know. 

Thank you so much!

Retired Soldier/MOTHER Helps Military Widows and Single Mothers Go Back To School

Because today is Mother's Day, I felt it appropriate to tell the world about this amazing woman/ mother who is on a mission to help OTHER mothers (specifically military widows & single mothers). 

As if fighting for and serving our country for 20 long years wasn't enough, Ms. Warford (founder of The Warford Foundation and retired US ARMY soldier) hasn't stopped serving there. She continues to serve our community and works hard to help those whose significant others/spouses fought and died to protect us! 

Her mission is not to give hand outs or handicap these women by not making them work for what they need. Instead, her mission is to give them something priceless- a higher education; a degree; knowledge that will help them succeed in life!

These women's husbands / kids' dads gave their lives to protect our country & to protect us. The least we can do is help the families (our soldiers/heroes left behind) by helping them become self-sufficient. We can all help by making monetary donations, becoming a volunteer and/or simply by spreading the word so that we can reach those who can benefit from this cause.

(Please read below)

The Warford Foundation
Helping Single Mothers & Military Widows Continue Their Education

The Warford Foundation (TWF) is a non-profit organization (registered in Maryland) that was created to assist military widows and single mothers through financial assistance in their pursuit of successfully completing nursing program. 

The founder, Parthenia Warford is known to have a soft spot when it came to helping those who are less fortunate. Specifically, she has a special connection with single mothers, as she was one raising two daughters, while she was in the U.S army for 20 years.  

Ms. Warford served her country honorably from 1981 to 2002. A retired US Army soldier, she is too familiar with the plight of the military spouse. She knows the impact of having a spouse serving their country (fighting this Nation's war) one day and then being told the next day, "You're [now] a widow with children." This life altering event is devastating to anyone and a military wife (or single mother) with limited job skills is left to pick up the pieces to provide the best way she can for her family. With this concern, Ms. Warford started TWF, to give hope to these women (who are often forgotten about after the funerals and other military rituals) and to let them know that they are not alone.

"Our hope is that it will help them to contribute to society in an area of critical need - [nursing]; while also increasing their sense of purpose and ability to become more self-sufficient." ~Parthenia Warford

The mission of TWF is to expand these opportunities to these women by increasing self sufficiency through scholastic growth and achievement. In order to continue to help them obtain an associates degree in nursing, TWF (who is IRS 501(3)c approved) relies on donations and often hosts various events/ fundraisers. The proceeds obtained will go directly toward Project Impact Scholars fund, which was established specifically for this cause. 

For more information and to learn how you can be a part of this cause, please visit http://thewarfordfoundation.org/ or email info@thewarfordfoundation.org.

How To Make $1,000 a month from a Blog with Only 1,000 Page views per month

You blog. You Profit. Sign up for SocialSpark!

You don't need a lot of traffic to make money by blogging. You just need to maximize the amount of money you make on your current traffic.
Take for example, the blog running Google Ads. On average those ads net $1 to $2 CPM. That means you'll make a buck or two when the ad is shown 1,000 times. Considering that many blog don't even get 1,000 page views a month, and you can see why I'm not so big on Google Ads anymore. 
Luckily, there are ad networks that pay a lot more than Google, and by far the most profitable ad network for low traffic blogs is Social Spark.

What Is Social Spark?
SponsoredTweets referral badgeSocial Spark allows bloggers to monetize their blogs with sponsored content. Most of the time, this content is done with a blog post, but there are also sponsored videos and social media campaigns as well. Social Spark is ideal for low traffic blogs because the effective CPM is extremely high.
What's great about Social Spark is that they are always dealing with very high quality and well-known brands. You will actually be writing about content and services that you enjoy using and writing about. Disney and Sears have been some of the huge brands making the most out of their partnerships with Social Spark.

How To Make Money with Social Spark 
  1. Sign Up
    Create a profile in SocialSpark.
  2. Add Properties
    Link your blog to SocialSpark. You will then be asked to authorize Google Analytics and Direct Publishing on one of their supported platforms.
  3. Browse Marketplace
    SocialSpark provides you with Offers and Leads from Advertisers, collectively known as Opportunities. Each Opportunity details what the Advertiser would like you to blog about and how many SocialSpark Points you can earn. You can accepte the terms of these Opportunities as defined by the Advertiser or negotiate terms.
  4. Write Your Post
    Once you have found an Opportunity you like you, write a blog post within SocialSpark. Your post is submitted back to the advertiser for approval.
  5. Get Paid
    Once your post is approved it is published to your blog via Direct Publishing. After 30 days, you are paid your points. You can convert your points directly in to cash and receive payment via PayPal.
How Much Can You Make with Social Spark?

The great thing about Social Spark is it's not very traffic dependent. I would get paid the same amount to write about Disney as a blog with less than 1,000 page view per month. Obviously, this is not fair (you can negotiate a higher rate) and it's the reason you hardly see any Social Spark posts on my blog. 
For the low traffic blog, Social Spark is a gold mine. I've seen many blogs with less than 1,000 page views per month making $100 to $1,000 per month off the network. This is worlds away from the $1 to $2 you would make off Google AdSense. 
Give Social Spark a try and watch your blog income reach new heights. Have a great week!
