And who was the guy who sold the side of his shaved head
for adds.. and it worked..
Down side of cruisers addvertising is that sponcers want a plan on where you'll be and when and cruisers dont know where they will be tomorow for the most part.
Randy did pick up sponsors a few years ago when he and his son rode
their bicycles across the US. His son had just turned 13 and had recently lost
his grandfather to cancer.. American Lun Association picked it up and agreed to pay 25 % of all money
rasied in the name of the Lung Association.. They raised around 60K in their 3 month ride across the US.
The down side, as Randy tells it was that once the Association found out he was making some decent money, the local branches across the US wanted their share, saying if it was raised in there district, they wanted their money.. It turned into a big political mess before it was over..
So could you see, addvertising for Non-Profit and colecting money as you sailed but every country in the world wanted their fair share of colection as you passed through. Or the crap you would put up with going through a country because you were a yacht for profit and not just a tourist.....
