the idea girl says
I’m copying my suggestions I’ve sent to NIFF on facebook on how to find volunteers.
They want 70 people to sign up by the end of March 31, 2014, in total they need 300 volunteers to help at all the many venues for the film festival and celebrity events in the Niagara Region June 19 – 22, 2014
feel free to message them if you have suggestions or can help!

here’s my suggestions to them 13 March 2014 (might have posted march 12 2014)
yes the arts council in ridgeway, the garrison theatre all willing to help just email them and let them knowalso arts dept students niagara college and brock university. give a special deal or VIP party for volunteersI also emailed the school which never got back tome, asking for volunteer time to be put towards a school credit.. when they do it for the heart and stroke foundation they get community hours towards a credit.rodman hall of arts has volunteerscontact organizers from welland canal days, fort erie festival ask them to offer volunteers for this year in lake ontario’s event for future training of events to be in lake erie too..
we can do part of the festival next year in same areas and then the next week or days we can put the festivals from fort erie to welland. that’sthe plan to expand the seat sales.. most of our people attend their events and vice versaalso contact sarah ferguson fort erie times and do an interview with her, she’d love to do it! mention that I’ve sent you (as linda randall my blogging name)
she’s with sun media they own 100 newspapers. we can get volunteers from all the way from toronto to buffalo new york, we all help each other out i’d do a celebrity picnic bbq thing for the volunteers – meet some actors from some of the films featured at the festival as an incentive… you can get food donated to event if you talk to kinsmen’s to do it, and have local businesses advertise at it (they sponsor the food stuff) and we can get the whole community involved..its’ been too snowy for me to get out anywhere i use buses in fort erie..
THE bia in ridgeway did me in the newsletter so far. waiting for fort erie times to run the story i did with them as well – if you do an interview you can mention i talked to you about expanding in this area and plug the need for volunteers to help out.
i’d set up transportation from each city in fort erie welland and port colborne to pick up volunteers at a parking lot and offer to drive them in in case they dont’ have transportation but want to be a volunteermost of the places here don’t ask for a resume to do volunteer stuff that i know of, i’d ask how they do it tell them linda referred you to them many of the business person’s and public know me from my youtube videos travel blogging restaurants hotels and things to do in the niagara region harry and i film from toronto to the usa canada border
