- Dear Penn,
Thank you again for having us at your breakfast on Friday, January 16th. We all enjoyed it and Logan really appreciated being there and meeting all of your members and guests!
We are very pleased to tell you that we received over 15 books ordered at the breakfast and are confident that more will sign up on line based on the enthusiasm we received and the cards that were passed out. This is our first “print run” so we are anxious to start the presses. We probably won’t run the print order until the end of the week, so just as a reminder, there is still time to order a signed copy of Logan’s book Beyond Expectations! If anyone is still interested, please visit us at www.LoganAldridge.com and click on BE merchandise. We are only offering signed copies to “friends of BE Foundation” which is a minimum donation of $50 to Logan’s foundation. As soon as the books come in, he will sign and mail out copies along with a special Beyond Expectation gift. Once we find a “book partner” we will release the book to the public.
This brings me to the other point of interest we discussed. We are in search of a company that would be a good fit with Logan and his foundation to help sponsor the book, his speaking engagements & the subsequent press that will accompany the book release. With the right company partner we think that we can not only sell a lot of books and get great publicity for Logan’s foundation, we can also generate a lot of community interest & PR for the book partner as well. We are planning a full blown PR campaign announcing the book, what Logan’s foundation is striving to achieve and the local company that made all of this possible! All proceeds from the sale of “Beyond Expectation: Attitude is How You Live Your Life” will go to the Logan Aldridge Foundation. Logan’s dream for this foundation is to raise money and awareness for all Children’s Hospitals in the United States, starting right here in North Carolina. His first order of business is to purchase and help install Wii Gaming Systems in the children’s wings to help with the mental and physical recovery of the children that are having to fight day after day in their hospital rooms. Logan is very familiar with the daily exhaustion of being in a hospital room, the boredom and depression that can go along with their stay and the mental joy that interactive activities can bring to these kids!
We are looking for a corporate sponsor that will help with the cost of the printing for the books. We have been able to find a local resource that can print them in small quantities. However, printing in small quantities is costly. That being said, if we could place a large order the price per book would come way down. We are hoping that with the right partner we can place a significant order and make the book accessible to a larger audience.
If you can think of any companies that might be a good fit to help make these dreams a reality, please let us know so we can reach out to them and introduce them to Logan and his foundation.
Penn, thank you so much for your time and your generous nature in helping Logan with everything. He couldn’t ask for a better partner than you and the BCA!

No Upcoming Event
Jason and I had a very productive meeting yesterday with Don Draughon (KeySource Commercial Bank). We uncovered areas where we can be a real support to them, and they may turn out to be the best bank for us. Also, I see where we can support their long-term marketing, with our Laser Direct service, so I anticipate a positive and mutual relationship.
I see now that personal relationship building and door opening is where BCA is really helping us.
