Execution


Execution 1. 

Each team  selects  a  player  or  players  to  record  a   promoGon    that  will  run  in  the  stadium  on  gameday.      

2. 

The NFL  produces  one  or  more  promoGon  spots  for       television  to  air  during  games,  naGonwide.    

3. 

All Promos  (in-­‐stadium  and  TV)  include  the  call  to  acGon   being  the  Text  to  give  (Text  PINK  to  41518  to  donate  $10   to  the  American  Cancer  Society).    

4. 

AddiGonal promoGon  all  month  on  social  networks   (MSABC,  ACS,  NFL,  Teams'  individual  pages)  and  websites.    


Considerations Â


Considerations ●  Who  will  produce  the  spots?    (NFL  Films?  Third-­‐Party  

agency?  Teams’  Media  RelaGons  Dept?)  

●  In-­‐game promoGon  will  require  a  script  for  the  PA  

Announcer

●  On air  TV  talent  will  need  script  


Considerations ●  In-­‐game  promoGons  should  run  independent  of  television  

promoGon  

●  A television  promo  graphic  should  be  made  available  to  

television broadcasters,  allowing  them  promote  the   campaign  to  the  viewing  audience  


Considerations ●  When  recording  promoGons,  we  need  to  be  careful  to  

include legal  language/text  per  Text  To  Give/Mobile  Giving   FoundaGon  (ex:  Standard  text  messaging  rates  may  apply)    

●  ACS can  provide  exact  language  upon  request  


Considerations ●  We'll  want  to  work  hard  to  ensure  that  the  focus  of  the  

effort is  on  BOTH  the  in  stadium  experience  and  the  TV   viewing  experience  


Reporting/Results Â


Reporting/Results ●  The  American  Cancer  Society  can  provide  reports  of  

cumulaGve donaGon  amount,  naGonwide.    Reports  can  be   provided  on  an  established  interval  

●  The NFL  and  the  American  Cancer  Society  may  promote  

dollars raised  by  the  campaign,  based  on  the  reporGng   informaGon  available  during/aler  the  campaign  

●  DonaGons made  will  not  be  received  by  the  American  Cancer  

Society (from  the  Mobile  Giving  FoundaGon)  unGl  a   minimum  of  3  months  aler  the  campaign

PSA Concept:  Players  As  Volunteers   …Cut  to  another  player  helping  cancer  paGents  select  wigs  and   scarves  in  the  wig  bouGque.    Voiceover  to  explain  services   available,  players  supporGng  the  American  Cancer  Society  and   finish  with  Call  to  AcGon  to  join  your  NFL  team/players  to  fight   breast  cancer  by  TexGng  PINK  to  41518  to  donate  $10  to  the   American  Cancer  Society.

PSA Concept:  Players  And  the  Women   in  their  Lives   General  concept:     Players  from  around  the  league  are  standing/sisng/spending   Gme  with  the  respecGve  women  in  their  lives,  illustraGng  the   story,  and  the  importance  of  joining  the  NFL  and  the  American   Cancer  Society  in  the  fight  against  breast  cancer.
