Happy Labor Day Weekend!
I pulled up to a Quick Trip station today to fill up my gas tank as I would need it as I am having to work over the Labor Day weekend much to my dismay! The good thing about that I reminded myself was the fact that at least I wouldn't have to deal with Atlanta traffic while I was out working all over the city!

Then I met Naomi! She saw my truck covered in BUMP IT UP! magnets and asked me what it meant. Of course I was off and running thentelling her about all we hope for with TBE! I gave her a magnet and she put it on her car and promised to spread the word.

Then I asked about her only to find out she had been laid off from her job , but was going to be starting another soon. ONLY right now "things were tight. REALLY TIGHT!" Haven't we all been in this situation at sometime in our lives.

As I finished our conversation and was about to leave I told her to hold on just a moment. I put a couple of gift cards from Starbucks in an envelope because everyone needs a treat now and then  and added some momey to help with the weekend. Only I told her not to open it until I left. I love "hit and runs."

There are lots of Naomi's out there, but today there is one less at least for the weekend! As I drove away I thought to myself, " I am thankful I have I have the opportunity TO WORK this weekend and Monday!

Happy Labor Day Naomi and all you BUMPERS! BUMP IT UP!

Hi Everyone! Sorry it's been a little while since the last blog! I will be posting alot more frequently as things pick up in the fall. Right now I am trying to lay the groundwork for the experiment itself. The launch for Atlanta will be taking place in early fall. After speaking with people in the media several who are BUMPERS told me we would get our best publicity as we approach the one year prior to The Bump Experiment. So get ready for late Sept and early October as we launch here in Atlanta and then beyond!

I spent about two hours today  in a local shopping center parking lot. You would not believe the crowd the BUMPMOBILE drew. It really catches peoples attention when your truck is COVERED with bright orange magnets! It's amazing how many people just  immediately put the magnets on their cars after hereing about our experiment!

I am presently trying to catch up on hundreds of emails so please be patient! I'm still shipping magnets and wristbands all over the nation as well as the world. Thank you Ireland and Japan for your interest.

Currently i am working on The Bump Foundation Inc website. look for it to debute in the next FEW weeks or sooner! Hope you will join as it will help advance and fund the experiment.

Plz continue to spread the 2word to all you know. Remember we need MILLIONS on board November 2 - 8, 2009! As always THANKS for your support! Until next time.....
