After hearing the superb news that the rally will be held at the Liberty Bell, we need to make sure that it lives up to expectations. The grassroots troops in philly have beend doing an amazing job promoting this thing locally, but we need to spread the word to EVERYONE. We should all pitch in to help promote it, and here are some of my ideas:

Campaing HQ: An email needs to be sent out to everyone on your list letting them know about about the rally. Explain that this isn't just another run of the mill event, but THE seminal rally taking place at the birthplace of our government. A special section of the official website, ronpaul2008.com, should be dedicated to the rally as well.

Meetup groups: We need to make sure that knowledge of this historical event is being passed around in all meetup group mailing lists, and being discussed on all the boards. Step forward and announce what area you can cover.

Facebook: Can someone with graphics skills create a banner? We should get a chipin going for the purchase of 100,000's of flyers. Also be sure to post this on all your network walls, friend's walls, and any groups you belong to.

Myspace: Samething goes here. Send messages to your friends and post bulletins adverstising this event.

Locally: There have been a ton of fliers handed out in Pennsylvania, but people in the tristate area, mid atlantic, new england, and even midwestern regions should start doing this. Advertise a chip-in if you need funds.

I've updated the unofficial website with the latest news, so you can link to it in your promotions.

Also, if anyone can create a flash widget for a countdown-to-the-rally timer, it would be most appreciated.

Bump - This is a great thread. Please make this happen. We need a banner ASAP. This Banner needs to be placed at the top of this site as soon as November 5th has passed.

I can volunteer my graphic art services for the banner. I don't do flash but if you want a static banner, I'm here for you. Email me the pixel dimensions for the banner along with an email address to send it to, at ma@mikeangelstudios.com.

I can complete it for you by Monday night. Can you work with that?

Contact me about any other RP graphic art needs in the future as well. I'm a Philly Grassroots Meetup volunteer and I'm here to help.

An email from the campaign should be going out soon (I hope). I stressed to the Philly people and to Neil Moore the importance of this. Any conflicting info needs to be squashed and the rally details disseminated. I also understand that people on the ground in Philly are banging on the meetup doors already.
Daily Paul and all those other sites need to be contacted as well and I'm going to the thisnovember5th.com site right now to ask them to post this on their site as it is getting pretty slammed lately.
