Today Show Links for March 9

(Unofficial) Today Show Related GOALS by Monday March 9:

  1. Get Melissa Bell and Lisa Kilion (2 of our organizers) noticed in the crowd on Monday’s show (should be more than reasonable!)
  2. Get the staff Melissa challenged to accept on Monday (since she/they will be there)
  3. Increase likes on the original (March 1) challenge to the Today Show from Syl Reisman on their Facebook page (to show them we’re interested and numerous)
  4. Increase the staff/producers pre-knowledge of the challenge and Melissa/Lisa’s presence for Monday in any ways you think of (sharing Jenny’s video, see ideas at end of post)
  5. Get Melissa and Lisa booked on the Today Show (this was an older goal, more feasible last week, if at all, but why not hope?)

*If you only have time for one thing, retweet her challenges to each host.  I may post a ‘power tweet’ later that attempts to kill all birds with one tweet (no pun intended)….

Here are some with photos from the wax museum:

This page contains lists of links to the Today Show posts so far and some of the important tweets (Melissa’s challenge in particular).

*Catch up links at end and more background on the Today Show Challenge History & Links Page; more links for the challenge on the Links Page.

General, Unrefined Suggested Twitter Goals:

Show the Today Show producers and staff Melissa and Lisa’s faces and emphasize Melissa’s challenge and our on-going challenge to get them noticed Monday.

  1. Retweet Melissa Bell Challenge (matt lauer, al roker, savannah, k.giff…..)
  2. Let the person know organizers Melissa/Lisa will be there Mon (ex. Link provided, links to fb post)
  3. Follow up with more to each of them
    1. Example–Did they know they’ve also been challenged by Montana teens
    2. Hundreds more have shown support already (could link to original challenge)
    3. Tweet them about who has accepted so far (Yolanda Foster, Angeli Vanlaanen) with note to watch for them Monday or link to a fb post that tells them to

Melissa’s Challenge for 3/9 to Retweet

 Jenny’s Video

This video is very well done and would be very useful to tweet and post toward the today show and individual hosts to grab their attention.  Though I think it is also good to include a link that shows them Melissa and the girls, or their profiles on the website, or something like that.
