Shriners Hospitals for Children is offering an exciting advertising opportunity.
Companies may purchase space for display of their logo on the sides of a semi-trailer, along with the Shriners Hospitals for Children logo. Unlike stationary billboards, which can only been seen from one spot, these “rolling billboards” travel from coast to coast, through urban and rural areas, reaching millions of viewers nationwide.
The cost of the advertising space is $3,995 for approximately six years, typically the length of time that semi-trailers are in service on the road. The annual cost of this inexpensive opportunity is about $665 a year, or approximately $56 a month for six years. This inexpensive advertising opportunity is a tremendous value, and also helps to increase public awareness of Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Sparhawk Trucking, Inc. and ProSticker.com, two companies in Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., teamed up to make this unique advertising opportunity available. Sparhawk Trucking has donated space on the sides of their semi-trailers to help promote Shriners Hospitals for Children. ProSticker.com has donated the time and talent to create and print vinyl artwork to be displayed on the semi-trailers, creating the “rolling billboards” that help to raise awareness for Shriners Hospitals for Children, as well as the sponsoring companies.
“This is one of the most unique and inexpensive opportunities for businesses to show support of our well-known charitable organization and gain exposure for their own business at the same time,” said Director of Corporate Sponsorships and Giving for Shriners Hospitals for Children, Wayne M. Witczak.
The fundraising opportunity was originally promoted through Zor Shriners, the local Shriners chapter in Wisconsin, and was a huge success. With the help of Zor Shriners member Terry McShane, the fundraiser was expanded to a national program. Owners of Sparhawk Trucking Mark and Tom Sparhawk and owner of ProSticker.com Steve Livernash were eager to help.
