If you are going to any of the above concerts and are willing to help out, please let us know as soon as possible!
All we're asking is for someone to bring with them blank pages of the Rock Hall petition and ask their fellow fans at the concert to sign it. That's it! It couldn't be easier.
With each new show that gets called for, the easier it will be for everyone campaigning all across the country...and likewise, if you would like to volunteer for a concert that someone will already be covering, you'll be helping them out immensely by splitting the workload with them.
Even if all you can take with you is just a page or two, that's fine. Every little bit helps. Don't be shy about volunteering. All we ask is that you be committed to do whatever you promise.
The success of this campaign depends solely on how many people are willing to help out and do what they're willing to do. This isn't a passive campaign...we need to get out there and collect signatures if we want this to work.
So please, if anyone's interested, or if there are any questions or ideas, by all means contact us today.
Let's get out there, folks, and help make...oh, you know.
