|Earn while you prevent the flu pandemic -- be a street fundraiser
So many have told us they would spend more time volunteering, but they have to earn a living. Problem solved! See those people out there on the highway? They will pay you to hand them bumper stickers -- not all, but quite a few of them -- enough to support your efforts handsomely. And every time a bumper sticker gets on a car, you will have told a lot of people that they can cure things.
Your objective is to avoid the person who doesn't want it. Get on to the person who already wants to help. This is identification of people who already see and want it. You then serve them. Your objective is to identify, and get to, and interact with the people who want it as quickly, and briefly as possible, so you can identify and get to the next people who want it.
Do you get what CureDrive is? What is it? Good.
You're looking for people in the left turn lane like you -- they get it.
Find the people who will support the Cure Drive. They are interspersed, peppered, through the line of cars stopped at the intersection in the left turn lane. There is an occasional light with none, but usually there are two or three, and sometimes a lot more.
If you can do this for even 30 minutes, a day or two a week, on your lunch hour or right after work, you will make a difference.
Some people ask for the sticker without donating, or just say they can't donate, in which case I always give them the sticker anyway. And some people offer up less than two dollars, or some change. And some people give more -- a bunch of dollars, or five dollar bill, or $10 bill. Everybody's different, but the thing they have in common is they want to help.
Which would indicate that lots of people in the ordinary everyday environment instantly relate to the idea that people cure things. Popular support for the CureDrive is in the left turn lane at an intersection near you.
Many people will offer you small amounts of change. You'll probably gratefully accept these, since they will be above your cost, and sometimes, when they're below your cost, you'll still feel thankful, and want to give the person the sticker. A lot of significant communications are transferred within the few seconds that you have with people there on the median. For example, one person immediately told Greg that he would certainly put a sticker on his car, because his wife had just died of cancer.
You don't have to give anybody a sticker without a donation. I give things away, or accept whatever I'm offered, because it makes me feel good to do it that way.
You earn your money at something like this because you like freedom. You like doing it when you want, where you want. You like starting when you want, and stopping when you want. You like creating your own structure. You like not being answerable to anyone.
What the signs you wear look like:
The signs are Word documents, so you must have Word on your computer for them to load. They're set up to print out exactly as you see them here, so just print them; don't change the settings:
When people see a bumper sticker once, it has very little effect on them. Twice, and they take notice. Three times, they get curious. Four times, they know it's real. Five times, they start asking about its relevance to them. If we can tell enough people, especially media people, that they can cure things enough times and quickly enough, we may be able to prevent the killer flu pandemic that's predicted.
Media people are the same as everybody else. They see the bumper stickers too. The difference is, along about the fifth or sixth viewing they suspect that this is something they should cover, or at least find out whether or not they should cover. Any committed individual who has a halfway busy intersection in their town can get the CureDrive on TV. When the killer flu epidemic comes it won't just kill people we care about; it will paralyze all social functions, so even if we're immune to it we won't be able to get food. We may not even have running water. No one will go to work. And we don't like this scenario, so we want you to be out there
Meaning, we want you to earn as much as possible.
We need people who earn enough money to live well.
Living well is very important when you're volunteering. After you finish for the day you
want to go to a nice Japanese restaurant with the other volunteers and order a sumptuous
meal of squiggly little slithery things, and beer to wash them down with.
It helps to wear a shirt, or some other upper body garment that says CureDrive -- it makes you official!
Here is a breakdown of the donations we need, in advance, for various quantities of bumper stickers..
