Getting Tina Stull A Sponsor

11 02 2011

The first question you probably have is, WHO is Tina Stull? 

 

Tina Stull and Team Troops

Tina Stull and Team Troops

 

I was introduced to this remarkable woman by a Fox 26 Houston chatter/blogger friend, Robert.  I do not remember if he suggested I follow her on Twitter, or if he suggested she follow me.  When I went to her website to find out more about her, her inspirational story touched me.  You can click her picture above to go to her site.  She had been diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma and was given 3 years to live.  Racing was one of the items on her bucket list.  Before receiving any treatment, when she went back to the doctors, they told her the cancer was not there any longer.  Having received a second chance at having a long life, she continued to pursue racing “as a National Hot Rod Association Super Comp Dragster driver” and has become a motivational speaker by “helping people everywhere overcome their obstacles and reach for their dreams.”  She is not just a speaker.  Tina is in there with her sleeves rolled up, whether it is helping someone she personally knows, or helping our troops. 

I will be the first to tell you I know nothing about the racing world.  This woman inspires me and makes me want to learn more about it.

While following her Twitter feed, I noticed that she is looking for sponsors.  While I have no connections to be able to help her in that department, I decided to do what I do best:  Start a fan campaign. 

This is quite a different thing than my usual fan campaign, which is generally to save a favorite show (or be a participant in someone else’s efforts).   However, I have come up with some ideas:

1.   Watch Tina’s Blue Tool Crew videos on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpzWhazIo0A   (that will lead you to the first one).  Subscribe to them.  Go watch all the others.  Leave comments.  Right now there are only 6 comments on some.  Tina Stull fans can do BETTER than that.  Visit daily.

2.  Follow @bluetoolcrew on Twitter, and let them know how much you love Tina Stull and her spots.  Visit daily.

3.  On Facebook, look for Blue Tool Crew and like their page.  Spread your words of love for Tina on their site.  Visit daily.

4.  Follow @jumbies account to help Tina show that she has a great fan support base.  Leave a comment daily.

5.  Go to Tina’s web site often to see about other ways you can support her and our troops. 

I want to thank Tina for the kindness she has shown me and my family.  I have a child with autism and have begun running their Twitter account.  All I had to do was ask her to ask her fans to follow it Twitter account and poof, we had a ton of followers.  The Twitter feed is to share information about autism and the treatment method of applied behavior analysis, but to share testimony of the children’s lives that were transformed once coming there.  For me, if I can return the kindness and try to whip up an old-fashioned fan campaign for her, let the fun begin.
