I would like to thank you for getting involved in the
“Coaches Care” program. This concept is proof that, with
all coaches working together, we can and will affect a
major support for Hurricane Katrina relief. Your efforts
are greatly appreciated.
Our goal is for everyone to work together to help make a
difference in the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast region.
The response to this effort has been tremendous and we
need to continue in this effort.
The best way to achieve our goal is to continue to
spread the word. Below are some ideas for ways that each
of us can help get the word out about this relief
1. Have your athletics department official website
link to the All Coaches Care website (www.allcoachescare.com)
2. Contact local radio and television outlets and
be available to them in publizing this
3. Get other coaches involved in this project.
Contact your friends throughout the nation and get
4. Have your sports information office issue a
press release with your item and specifics on the
web site to the media in your area and region.
5. Make mention of the effort on all coaches radio
and television programs in the coming weeks.
It is important that we get men’s and women’s coaches
from all sports and on all levels involved. One of the
great things about the response we have already received
is the vastly different ways coaches are getting
involved. It’s not just an autographed ball or jersey;
it’s coaching clinics, fishing trips and dinners with
the coach. Below are some ideas for the ways that
coaches from all levels can get involved.
1. 50/50 raffles.
2. Car washes.
3. Raffles to all-events season passes to all
sporting events on your campus.
4. Special parking at events.
Once again, I thank each and every one of you for
becoming involved in this effort. This is not sprint --
this is a marathon. This is an effort that will and must
continue to work. This is a process, no different than
building a team or a program. Please help us in getting
the word out and making this an event that makes a
difference in our country. If I can be of any assistance
in your efforts, please
