Cardinals Honor Community All-Stars on Cards

Team asks for nominees of local heroes for a virtual giveaway at peak time for local heroes. We love this!

First flagged by our friend Ben Hill, here is another great community idea while we are on lockdown.

The Springfield Cardinals are reaching out for nominations for their community card collection giveaway.  Nominations for the front lines of the Covid-19 responses like Nurses, Doctors, Police and Public Transit Workers.

Many teams use this trading card concept for Military Appreciation Nights (see PULSE: Military Appreciation).  It is a fabulous way to honor those people and shine a spotlight on their sacrifices for the greater good.

But with no games and thus no giveaways…the teams is creating these cards on-line and sharing socially. AWESOME.

Scroll down for some examples. Plus is a network to enhance the fan value of events.  Twice a month we gather for an hour-long discussion on an industry topic with a special guest to share their insights.
