Here’s the latest from Carmel Perez-Snyder in Florida:
Three clowns, a pirate, a Gecko, a beauty queen, the mayor and young women in orange shorts from a certain chain … No this is not a joke. All have one thing in common: they visited the Champmobile and all signed a Divided We Fail pledge in Palatka at the Blue Crab Festival.
It was literally three hot days at the Blue Crab festival as staff and volunteers collected pledges and authentic voices.
In the end, we gathered more than 800 pledges, recorded three authentic voices, plus a couple submitted online and really gained some strong possibilities for volunteers in Northeast Florida. We even had some folks hop on the CM and join AARP online.
