The types of sponsorship we are seeking are essential for us to successfully complete this event and support these wonderful organisations. Although the event started in April 2017, there are still key items that we desperately need. We start publicizing our sponsors from the date we receive written confirmation.
There are a few ways that you can support our cause;
- Sponsor us – supply an item/s that will assist us with completing our event
- Donate something that we can auction/raffle during the course of our trip, with ALL money raised going to Lifeline Australia & mindDog Australia.
- Donate money that will go to Lifeline Australia & mindDog Australia.
- Offer a mixture of any/all of the above.
At the end of the event we will also be auctioning off several items that have been supplied to us, with all raised funds going to the beneficiaries.
With such a huge event, there was a lot of equipment needed, but thanks to our fantastic sponsors, we only need a few more items. There is also some services that will make our life a little easier whilst we are travelling around.
Sponsors need to supply a minimum of 4 copies of their companies logo in sticker form for inclusion on our vehicle (except if you are a current Sponsor). It is also preferred that an electronic copy of your logo is supplied for use on our website.
- Vehicle Equipment/Services
- Camper Trailer, Camping Equipment & Accommodation
- Media Relations
- Electronic Equipment
- Other Items Needed
- Monetary Donations
Your sponsorship will provide opportunities for the involvement of your employees, dealers, customers and the wider Australian community to participate in our discussion/presentations. If you decide to become a Platinum sponsor, we will attend your organisations worksites and provide the staff with information about lifeline, mindDog and Paul’s Journey battling with the depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and his Mental Health Assistance Dog. This event will have high and ongoing market reach with people that are emotionally connected to our cause. This will be through Social Media, a book and a documentary.
Your sponsorship will go towards helping save lives from suicide across Australia. You will also have a significant impact on the lives of people who are suffering from a mental illness by allowing mindDog Australia to train more Mental Health Assistance Dogs.
If you are able to help in any way, please contact us on DrivingOzBlackDog.com or call us 0427388168. Please note: We are available 7 days a week (including public holidays) to respond to questions or offers of sponsorship.
