So here’s the skimmy. The World’s Largest DIY Event needs some DIY assistance to help spread the word. NYC is made up of five boroughs, each of which are cities in their own right. We have a lot of territory to cover! You help us with a couple minutes of your time, by going to the places you already go and dropping off some postcards and putting up some posters, and we’ll reward you with two adult single-day passes, a $50 value. Want more tickets? Just tell us what you’re willing to do, what neighborhoods and sites you’ll cover, and we’ll work something out!

It’s easy. We will send you a packet of 25 flyers and 200 postcards and you go to all the places you already go (maybe a few more) and pin or tape a flyer on a bulletin board or in a window and a small stack of postcards on the front counter. Of course you will need to ask permission first! Then in a few of the places snap a picture for us and when your done send us a few so we can see the great work you have done.

When your done let us know and we will send you two Adult tickets to World Maker Faire. You won’t have to wait in line for your tickets, save a little cash and you will have helped us spread the word about this great event within your community.
