Summer for a Cause – in Provincetown, Cape Cod

My headline reads “it’s the year to put MG on the map” and June, which is MG awareness month, is approaching very fast.

Now that I’ll be spending the summer in Provincetown, Massachusetts, I’m wondering if I can get permission from the town to park The YesWeCan CamperVan in a place where all the tourists can see us and promote our cause?

It would be great to brainstorm ideas here on how to get the public’s attention for a disease most have never heard of. Can you please comment below with your thoughts and suggestions?
Also add slogan ideas?


For example, maybe we can sell window stickers saying something like:

  1. join the drive for MG
  2. put MG on the map
Or bumper stickers, with slogans like:
  1. slow is good – love Vintage VWs and people with MG
  2. support little known causes like MG (Myasthenia Gravis)
  3. my auto is driving to get attention for auto-immune diseases

  1. Hello Carole!

    I would suggest that a logo be developed – choose a specific color and shape to always use with anything you print or display about MG … Breast Cancer for example has the pink ribbon. And keep the quotes to sound byte size – with a link to the site attached so people can go look it up for more info. too. But be sure to have something that says “ask me about my ride for MG awareness” etc. My thoughts are with you!

    • Moses, Thank you very much for these great suggestions! I’m in Provincetown this summer preparing for the trip and The YesWeCan CamperVan will be in town on display!
      We’re hoping to find a good graphic designer for logo, bumper stickers, window decals and maybe even a mural on a side panel of the VW.
