WE NEED SPONSORSHIP TO MAKE THE TRIP.
Every penny donated goes directly to the charities. But to help offset our personal expenses we are looking for SPONSORS.
We offer various levels in return for local and national exposure online, in print, radio, television and signage, etc. Plus it’s just a good cause to be involved with.
THE 5 SPONSORSHIP LEVELS ARE:
3 MAJOR EVENT SPONSORS
5 CAVALIER LEVEL SPONSORS
10 KING LEVEL SPONSORS
20 CHARLES LEVEL SPONSORS
50 SPANIEL LEVEL SPONSORS
Please call 727-744-5606 to receive our Sponsorship Packet email about financial and in kind sponsors and how you'll benefit by sponsoring “Ollie’s River Adventure”.
Possible Sponsors can Include:
A Jet Ski Manufacturer or Dealer
We can really use help with a Jet Ski. Our Jet Ski is 11 years old. Reliability is critical and a concern.
A Tow Vehicle
An auto manufacturer or dealer. Cammy's crew will pull a small trailer and follow Ollie down the river when he needs to eat, nap, and sleep at night.
Other sponsors could include hotels, restaurants, marinas, dog food companies, vets, and many others, including private individuals. To discuss further, please call us at 727-744-5606 or email us. Thanks!
WANT TO VOLUNTEER? LOOK RIGHT HERE!
Please help us reach our goal of 5 Million Dollars, 100% donated directly to charities. We need:
PR and Promotions People
To spread the word online, local and national print, radio and TV, especially major TV networks. "The more who know, the better it'll go!"
People to make calls and send emails
Volunteers to work with charities. All donations go directly to the charities
Help with Social Media
Again, Volunteers who really know how to spread the word on socials, to help our little guy go viral.
Ollie Cam Live Stream
While Ollie is on the river and during stops for "pawtographs", photos and "Meat and Greets", he'll broadcast LIVE on the "Ollie Cam" starting in Pittsburgh August 13th. We need volunteers to operate the "Ollie Cam" and drones for cool aerial shots.
Safety First Always! After 50 years on the river, Michael is very experienced. However, we are looking for boat and Jet Ski clubs to be chase crew for parts of, or even our whole trip! It’s a fun way to get involved and add to the safety of the trip.
Children’s Book Illustrator, and Caricature Artist
To help offset our personal expenses, we are selling a children's book: “Ollie’s River Adventure”. We need an illustrator. The book will teach kids 7 valuable life lessons that Ollie will learn:
1) Safety First. Always! He'll have GPS, 2 phones and safety gear.
2) Set Goals in Life. (Ollie's is 500 miles, Pittsburgh to Cincinnati).
3) We All Encounter Obstacles in Life. (He will go through 12 dams).
4) Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall. (Rain slows us down).
5) Life Can be a Bumpy Ride. (He’ll face some bumpy waves).
6) Teamwork (Ollie, his mom, dad and volunteers will work together as a team).
7) Never Give Up! (A 4-5 day trip, for weather delays and dams. He keeps going!)
Schools, Scout Groups, Kids’ Sports Teams, etc
Ollie wants to meet as many people as possible! He will sign “pawtographs”, and pose for pictures at towns and marinas along the way. His schedule will be posted on this site as the trip gets closer, with the exact times subject to change due to weather, etc and will be updated on this site, the Ollie Cam and social media.
Help Ollie Set a Bunch of Guinness World Records!
For example: Most people to feed one dog in a day. Many of his stops will be “Meat and Greets” where each person, especially kids, gets a piece of his favorite healthy kibble to feed Ollie. If hundreds of people feed Ollie, it will be a world record and a fun way for everyone, especially the kids, to feel involved in making Ollie’s trip a success. Times and locations will be listed and updated on this site.
To volunteer just call us at 727-744-5606 or send an email. Thanks!
