Raymmar.com was invited to travel to Washington DC and cover the Conservative Political Action Conference. This means I need to come up with some quick cash to help offset the expenses involved in pulling something like this off.
As a small voice in a world of loud mouths we need your help to try and make this trip a reality.
What is CPAC
Where will your dollars be going?
Airfare for two – $800
Hotel for 4 days – $1200 :o
Transportation – $300
Events (Press passes do not include conference dinner events) $500
Misc/Incidental – $200
How it happened
My website has seen some tremendous growth over the last 6 months driving more than 500,000 unique visits and over a million page views.
During this time I have built a relationship with Big Dawg Music Radio, a part of Big Dawg Music Mafia.
As luck would have it, they are involved with the live entertainment at CPAC in addition to operating a booth on Radio Row where we will be broadcasting live from the event.
They recently reached out and asked me to come to CPAC under their umbrella as a radio personality as well as allowing me time on one of their stages to deliver a message to the conference attendants.
Why do two of you have to go?
I was actually offered two passes to the event so I thought I would take the opportunity to go up there and shoot a few videos as well as cover parts of the event for future usage on my website. I invited Ben Doherty to accompany me on the trip and help me produce and coordinate my segments.
There are a few other reasons why it made sense to bring someone else with me.
1: The hotel was a fixed cost so splitting the room with someone added no additional expense to the hotel cost.
2: I want to do some live action interviews and cover parts of the event as a on air reporter. To do this I will need a camera man.
3: We are planning a few rants at key locations at the capital so again, a camera man was vital to the entire production.
4: Ben is a close friend and sits on the board of the local young republicans here in Sarasota.
So in closing

I’m really just a punk kid with a dream, trying to make a difference in the world. I have shouted, ranted and raved for a while now and people are actually starting to pay attention. With your help we have gotten this far; with a little more we can really shake the world.
CPAC wont know what hit them.
