Campaign Mission

What is Y2W?
Y2W

Y2W is designed to be a serious, yet fun campaign. Our goal
is to get supporters energized and excited about celebrating
change in a nonviolent/non-extremist delivery. We want our
supporters to act now and let others know that not only do
they seek change but when the time comes for all of us to say
Amen for the power of the 22nd Amendment of the
constitution and when President Bush is sent packing the
world is going to celebrate this joyous and historical occasion!

Everyone is asking “What is "Y2W
Y2W”?
Y2W You've heard of Y2K. Well,
Y2W is the countdown not to an anticipated disaster, but to
Disaster Relief and W's Final Day as President of the United
States on 01·20·09!
Remember 1999, and those much better days of peace and
prosperity? On the eve of the of the new millennium America was
the beneficiary of eight consecutive years of bold democratic
leadership by our President William Jefferson Clinton providing us
with much to celebrate as we toasted to a new century with hopes
that the upcoming Gore administration would further complete our
transition forward, building even stronger bridges in the path to a
brighter future.
On the very dawn of this new millennium we were hit hard with
disaster branded “W”. Fast forward 10 years. It's now 2009. A vast
majority of Americans so clearly realize that the dreams and hopes
of yesteryear are so less bright, much fainter, than at any time any
of us can remember. Who do we have to thank for this near
decade of misguided, detrimental policies that have left so many in
this nation worse off today than yesterday? Of course, it's “W”
In this historic election year, we have much to
be excited about in the race to the future and
our hopes and dreams realized. So, it's time to
celebrate as we prepare to embark on
CHANGE. To mark this transition from "W" to an
OBAMA administration, Y2W is recreating the
toast to welcome in the REAL New Millennium.
After 8 years of delay, Y2W: 01·20·09 is the
day when the clock restarts to a brighter
(blazing, in fact) future.
Y2W is working to organize an event to celebrate 01·20·09 during
the Inauguration of Barack Obama in Washington, D.C. While
most inaugural events are the stereotypical "stuffy" black tie
events, the Y2W CELEBRATE CHANGE EVENT will be for “the
people” the average voter - who wants to mark this amazing
transition, welcoming in the start of a new era!
Join Y2W as we recreate the countdown to the REAL New
Millennium on the eve of Y2W: 01·20·09. Come countdown and
shout out those last 10 seconds on the clock till midnight and
celebrate a new day and brighter future. Little did Prince know we
would party like its “1999” in 2009.
Y2W is designed to be the HUB for celebrating CHANGE on
01·20·09. Additionally, Y2W will be creating a feature on the site
tracking celebrations worldwide. For voters that can’t attend the
concert on 01·19·09, Y2W will provide the tools for supporters to
organize their own event as celebrations will be held around the
world. Y2W IS THE OUTLET TO CELEBRATE CHANGE!

Y2W mission is outlined below:
•Increase voter registration as well as votes for Barack
Obama
• Support our troops by raising and donating
funds to support organizations that assist
our wounded veterans and troops engaged
in combating the War on Terror as well as
linking our supporters to numerous
advocacy groups and organizations that aid
our men and women of the United States Armed Forces
• Participate in community outreach by showcasing and
supporting locally based charities and advocacy groups. Y2W
will also host fundraising events to raise money for worthy
causes such as poverty alleviation, and environmental causes
• Engage supporters by providing a social networking
component and arranging group activities
• Play an active role in implementing CHANGE by keeping the
spirit of “community organizing” alive by establishing a
recruiting office for community organizers and promote
community service
• Foster unity and bipartisanship working together to aid those
severely impacted by the negative impacts of the last 8 years
Maximizing brand exposure for our sponsors
• Utilize the media/press to make Y2W a household name

01·19/20·09 celebration/inaugural events
• Promote voter awareness/registration and fun facts/links to
historical data about the U.S. Presidency
• Organize the very first exit celebration event to honor the
most anticipated change of American leadership in our
lifetime. This event to celebrate change will be for the
“people” average voter. Our goal is to be the premier event

Company Overview

About the Organizer

Company Synopsis

Conception

Y2W is a small for-profit business established as a limited liability
corporation. Revenue will be raised through retail/e-commerce
merchandise sales, memberships, sponsorships, donation solicitation,
advertising/promoting new artists, and events. Other elements that
comprise Y2W are non-profit political activism and fundraising.

The Y2W concept was conceived on the back of a cocktail napkin
after a humorous, yet serious, conversation among friends about the
Bush Administration at a Washington, D.C., bar. Y2W has since
expanded from the simple countdown concept into a bona fide
organization that includes: Community outreach/fundraising, site to
promote new talent, educational/informational portal and resource for
the ‘08 election as well as a venue to promote voter registration,
social networking, political activism and celebration event.

As a benefit to our sponsors, Y2W will strive to provide the highest
level of customer service standards as well as respect and uphold the
reputation and values of our investors and backers.

Products and services
During the next phase of Y2W (Fall 2008) we will begin aggressively
rolling out an extensive product line for supporters to select from and
show their support for our campaign.

• Merchandise
Upon request Y2W will provide our brilliant concepts and themes for
new products in development benefiting our supporters by offering
them unique celebration novelties and engaging them to actively get
involved. Y2W has compiled an extensive list of retailers to help us
sell our products giving our sponsors additional exposure.

• Event planning
Our goal is to be the premier event and provide memorable, top-notch
events through superior customer service, dependability and creativity
for all our clients and guests.

• Memberships
Y2W will offer members exclusive content, advanced ticket sales,
selected merchandise and discounts.

• Feature artist promotion/Advertising space
Y2W receives many requests from new artists requesting to be featured on
Y2W; as a result Y2W will utilize this opportunity by adding a feature on the
site showcasing new artists as well as selling advertising space.

Market Analysis
Y2W’s target market, EVERYBODY! Is there anyone you’ve talked to
lately that is not excited about CHANGE? Senator Obama earned
62.98 million votes nationwide and has been embraced around the
world.
Y2W has the opportunity to spread our message globally and as a
result we will aggressively pursue markets in Europe, Asia, South
America, Canada and selected parts of the Middle East/North Africa
as well as rely heavily on support from youth activists and the LGBT
community.
Our competitors have been highly successful selling countdown
clocks, calendars, and bumper stickers, however Y2W offers
supporters what our competitors do not; an outlet, venue and tools to
celebrate change.

Campaign Strategy
Y2W has developed an aggressive and smart strategy to publicize our
cause. Upon request, we will share this strategy to allow our sponsors
to get an in-depth look at the methods behind promoting the project
and how we intend to execute our action plans.

Advisory Team/Campaign Staff
Y2W is working to build a solid support base and advisory team
consulting with some of the best and brightest minds in the field. As
we being our search for campaign staff, Y2W will recruit a
workforce that is energized, passionate, and ready to hit ground
running on day one. Upon request, Y2W will provide an operational
framework matrix for your review.

Vision for Y2W
To honor 01·20·09 local Washingtonian Michael Mayhew, a single
father, son of a Vietnam War veteran, and former U.S. Executive
Director Assistant to the World Bank, has launched the “bipartisan”
grassroots Y2W campaign countdown to celebrate change.
Mayhew hopes to foster and build a positive outlet for celebrating
change linking the entertainment industry to likeminded political
enthusiasts waiting for W’s departure. Together, he believes, we
can promote positive change, raise money for moral causes and
have a little fun standing side-by-side in celebrating change on
01·20·09. With the help and support of our supporters and sponsors
Y2W will be one step closer in making this vision a reality.
Additionally, Mayhew is a strong advocate for supporting and
honoring the service of or men in women protecting our Nation.
Along with celebrating change, Mayhew will be raising money to
assist our troops/veterans that have been severely impacted by the
wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Y2W Supports

The most important mechanism of Y2W is the Web site, as it is an
excellent source of exposure for our sponsors as well as the
ultimate resource for supporters. Our goal is to utilize this vehicle to
lure supporters and increase viewership by developing and delivering
creative interactive themes and concepts, contests, and be a major
resource for information during the 2008 General Election.

The goal of the Y2W supports is to raise funds and awareness for
moral causes. Y2W believes we will promote a positive and powerful
image by placing aside all political differences by joining together in a
bipartisan effort to promote positive change.

Over the 2008 Memorial Day weekend, Y2W received over 4,000 hits
within 48 hours at the World news site iconflict.com, and Y2W’s 4th of
July promo reached an estimated 10,000 people. Traffic to the Y2W
site will rise far above and beyond all expectations as we head into
the fall election season. Additionally, Y2W will receive a phenomenal
amount of exposure being linked from Obama campaign Web site.
The goal is to get over 5 million hits on the site.
As of August 2008, Y2W has reached well over 25,000 supporters
through word-of-mouth support and zero dollars spent on advertising.

“You cannot hope to build a better world without improving
the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for our own
improvement and, at the same time, share a general
responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid
those to whom we think we can be most useful”. - Marie Curie
Programs and charities Y2W will support

• Locally based charity and advocate groups: Even though DC
is the most powerful and influential city in the world, it’s a hotbed
for those in need. Y2W will also ally with local advocacy groups
• Celebrity/Public figures based charities: Those that seek to
protect the environment and strive for energy independence as
well as education, health care and children in need
• Supporting our troops: Y2W supports our troops, but not the
Bush Administration’s actions. Y2W is a strong advocate for
supporting and honoring the service of our men and women
serving our Nation. Looking beyond 01·20·09, Y2W will look to
expand on this theme of supporting our troops by forming alliances
to organize a charitable effort to mobilize Americans for an event to
celebrate and honor our Nation’s heroes. Additionally, Y2W will
look to organize a golf tournament to raise funds in support of
troops highlighting W’s most honorable contribution to our troops
by not golfing while the troops are in Iraq
Y2W will support programs that assist
our troops and veterans which will
include:

The site will be released in seven phase strategy as outlined below.
