Support ERV

ERV NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT

First, thanks to Midway Motors, McPherson/Hutchinson/Newton/Hillsboro, a family-owned company for loaning us ERV, a 2012 GMC Terrain, for our trip to every one of the 626 incorporated cities in Kansas.  Meet ERV, our Explorer Research Vehicle.



You can help support the Kansas Sampler Foundation's trip around the state in the following ways:

$500 - Be a showcase ad sponsor on the ERV blog for one year.  See the showcase ads on the right on the blog.  We link to your site and then ask you to choose a place to promote.  We put a picture of that place and link to it, as well.  Sign up as a showcase ad sponsor here.


$100 - Be a day sponsor on the ERV blog.  You'll be listed as the sponsor for a particular blog post (See the Marquette Chamber's day sponsorship).  We'll link to your organization, if applicable, and you can  choose an attraction to promote and we'll also link to that.  You can choose the day, if you'd like, or we'll place you somewhere.  Here is the place to sign up as a $100 sponsor.
