Friction Author, Jeff Rosenblum Teams Up with Special Spectators for an All-Star Fundraiser and Social Media Partnership

This July, anyone looking for a good business read can help give kids suffering from illnesses a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of an unforgettable college football game day experience through the new Special Spectators and Jeff Rosenblum par

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 17, 2017) - Questus agency founders, Jeff Rosenblum and Jordan Berg, will be teaming up with Special Spectators, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that delivers days of total joy by creating magical game day experiences for seriously ill children and their families, for a unique month-long Summer fundraiser to help raise money and awareness for the organization. For the month of July, the Friction authors will be donating all author proceeds to Special Spectators to support their upcoming 2017 college football season. In addition, the authors have created a social media fundraiser where people can post a picture with Friction the book to social media and tag #Frictionbook and @JRQuestus for an additional $10 donation per post.

With close ties to Special Spectators and a history of working with sports clients such as the NFL, Suzuki Motorcycles and ESPN, Jeff Rosenblum is staying authentic to his message that advertising can save the world. "One of my favorite lessons from the book comes from NFL legend Bill Walsh, who created the philosophy of 'put the ball where the other team isn't.' With this fundraiser, we are attempting to do that."

The fundraiser will help Special Spectators give families unforgettable experiences that many recognize as the best day of their child's life. It is also intended to build awareness of Special Spectators, an entirely volunteer run organization, among other sports organizations who would like to support the organization.

"We've been delivering the joy of Game Day for over 15 years and have served over 10,000 seriously ill children and their families. We are all volunteers and do this out of our love of kids and of course Game Day. We all love Game Day, right? Well, can you imagine if that day were the absolute best day of your life? Your simple $20 donation through this promotion helps make that happen for one incredibly grateful kid!" says Special Spectators Founder and Executive Director Blake Rockwell.

Join the fun on social media or make an additional donation today to give the joy of Game Day in an instant. See full campaign details at: https://www.thejeffrosenblum.com/
