Hey all. Lilbeaut here. First off, lots of cool things are happening in
Whyville and we don't even rise to the occasion. Literally!
What I'm saying is, Whyville still needs its Why-Passes, but I really think we
need a back-up. Because what if people just stopped buying Why-Passes? "I've
already gotten them for the next 6 months, I don't need to keep buying." Or
maybe something like, "Well, I've already had a Why-Pass last month and my
parents aren't going to buy me another one and I don't have a credit card.
Eh, I'm not desperate." We need something to back that up so Whyville won't
go crashing down. Because even though the Why-Passes are a really good deal for us money-wise and getting-in wise, Whyville needs more Whyvillian help.
City Hall has already said SPONSORS, and I'm going to say it again.
She's been insisting we need them for a very long time now. A very long time. Not one
of us has gotten a sponsor for Whyville. We need to! I know all of you are
saying, "O.K. It's your idea. You want to do it, you go do it." But it really
isn't that simple.
Getting sponsors is hard work. I think that maybe if people teamed up and
went around finding sponsors together, we would be more successful, because
believe me people, I've tried! I've tried for months. No one wants to listen
to some teenager blabbing on about what a website means to her and how they will
pay money to help her and millions of other children out. I mean, seriously.
If I were that guy I would slam the door in my face. I'm not gonna spend
money for one kid!
So we won't let it be just one kid!
Here is what I propose we do. (Heh. Don't I sound professional.) Get a
couple of your friends that go on Whyville just like you, or it doesn't even
have to be people that go on Whyville, but it does help more because they know
what Whyville is all about and will be better at explaining things. Check out places
on the internet, look in the newspaper, gossip (hearsay, whatever), and just look around
your community. But first think about what you want. Do you want a pet store in
Whyville? Start searching for real world pet stores. In truth, it isn't that hard, I
guess. You just have to have a route for it to work.
If you would like to help out, why-mail me. I will give you info on
exactly what, where, when you could be searching. I will give you extra help however I can. I'm not all quite sure about these things either. It just popped in to my head
and I went to work. I do things like that, don't I...?
Anyway, why-mail me and we will get things sorted out from there. Gimme a
little while, though because this isn't my only huge project underway and
ready to snap into action. Why-mail me, but don't expect a reply that very
day. Things take time and time I have very little of.
So here is what we do:
- Read this article (duh)
- Why-Mail me
- We slap together some ideas
- Get to work.
Err, we're still workin' on #2 right now. So get ready to help back up
Whyville. (We can't totally rely on Why-Passes!) Our goal is to find
people who will sponsor Whyville. Get them to advertise on Whyville -- like have a skateboard company pay to have a skateboard park in Whyville named after their company. Stuff like that.
Let's go hit them hard and fast, and they'll never know what
was coming. Only, hit them in a nice way, of course.
