2020 Calendar featuring Lasting Impressions Ambassadors/Models
Grand Prize: Expense paid trip to NYFW for two!Have you ever wanted to attend New York Fashion Week? Why is it so hard? Well, it’s by invitation only! So, what must one do to get invited? The answer is simple - win our grand prize and you are in! Yes, we have your tickets! Two airline tickets, two nights in a hotel in the Time Square area, and two tickets to Sherri Hill’s New York Fashion Week show. Who doesn’t want to win, right?!
So, the first question that comes to your mind is, “How do you win?” Winning is simple! Here are the rules and what you must do to win.
We are creating a professional calendar representing the ambassadors/models for our 2019 year. To be featured in the calendar, you must sell a minimum of 25 calendars by October 31, 2019, and each calendar is $20.00. The added benefit of the beautifully designed calendar will be the inserted coupons. The coupons will be of area shops/interest and even some coupons will be of online boutiques so if you aren’t from our area you still will receive some of the benefits!
On top of the coupons, we will set aside one dollar from the sale of each calendar to provide funds to elementary school teachers to help kids who are unable to buy supplies for the school year. The amount of money we collect will determine how many teachers we can help buy supplies.
The person who sells 25 calendars will not be the winner of the NYFW trip, but the person who sells the most will be the winner, but keeping in mind you must sell a minimum of 25 to qualify.
"I've always worn Sherri Hill dresses, but having the opportunity to talk to her backstage after her show was so exciting! NYFW was a dream come true" says Merrill Ann Culverhouse.
Don’t waste time!
Are you ready to get started? Let us help you with important information to help you sell the most!!
Who do you ask to buy?
Family, friends, co-workers, sorority sisters and neighbors…. Just to name a few. Everyone needs a beautiful wall calendar!
Tell me about the calendar!
Each month will feature a certain number of the models/ambassadors from a photo shoot in 2019-2020 prom dresses from Lasting Impressions. The wall calendar will feature important days for the year 2020. The added benefit will be the insert of coupons for area business and/or online stores.
Are any of the funds donated to an organization?
Indeed! One dollar from each calendar will be used to purchase school supplies for less fortunate students in elementary school. The funds will be donated to teachers who submit a request for consideration.
The deadline for selling at least 25 calendars will is October 31, 2019. The person who has submitted the most money for calendars that have been sold by October 31, 2019, will be the winner of the $500.00 gift certificate to Lasting Impressions. Please know that in order to participate in the calendar photo shoot in November you must have already sold and turned in your money for the 25 calendars. However, any calendars sold after the shoot (until December 3rd at 11:59pm Eastern time) will count toward the total number of units sold and will go toward the grand prize calculation.
How will deliver the calendars?
Lasting Impressions will get the calendars to you (the ambassadors/models) and then it’s your responsibility to get the calendars to the purchaser. We’re expecting to deliver the calendars by the second week of January 2020.
What do you get for selling the logo calendars?
Each person selling the calendar will have the opportunity to participate in a photo shoot where the images will be used throughout the year on all forms of social media for Lasting Impressions. The grand prize winner will receive an expense paid trip for two nights to New York City to attend the Sherri Hill Fashion Show. While in NYC you will stay in a hotel in the Time Square area. This prize is valued at more than $2,500. Plus, keep in mind, you must be invitation to Fashion Week, so can you really put a price tag on that?!

A strong social media presence is very important for us. While it is important that we produce a great calendar, it is just as important that we prepare for prom season using each of you on our social media outlets. While shooting the calendar, we will also have a photographer on hand shooting pictures that we will use for social media. I cannot stress this enough, you are critical to this success! Let’s talk a minute about how our social media campaign will work.
- As noted, we will have a photographer on hand to shoot individual photos during the calendar shoot. You will do an individual shoot using the dress you modeled in the calendar and possibly any other dresses that a Lasting Impressions team member ask you to model.
- During prom season (January to April) we will post pictures taken by our professional photographer. If it is your image, we will tag you. We as that you repost the image within 18 hours.
- If you see an image that you love from one of your Lasting Impressions ambassadors, please repost it. You never know when we are watching social media, well yes you do, we watch it daily, and you might be the winner of a cool gift or a swag bag! Yes, it will be that easy to win prizes. Simply repost your own pictures and then repost a friend’s picture that we have posted and you just might win. We will have a weekly winner.
Social Media / National Day:
- We're excited about National Day this year. This started last year and you were able to select your National Day to promote. This year we will provide you with a list of National Days. They can be individual or photographed as a group depending on the demand for each National Day.
- Yes, we’re packing a lot into the calendar shoot. We will do a “behind the scenes video” and we will do a few 30 second clips to post throughout prom season. This is important so read closely. Since it is 30 second clips and we are limited to the number of episodes we can film, I cannot make any promises that you will be included if you aren’t your best while filming. The message here is to make sure you are always on point and you are your best during the shoot. We would love to include you in the video promos but in the end, your performance is up to you. So, just give me your best! Once the clip appears on social media, we will ask EVERYONE to repost. I’m sure there will be a prize for the best performance! Will you win the prize?
Yes, we’re wanting to have a fun time. Yes, we are wanting great photos and yes we will give away prizes other than the trip to NYC. Details will come a little later how you can be the winner of the $500 gift certificate to Lasting Impressions. So buckle up, get your best game face on and get started selling calendars. Our calendar program will be the first step to having a successful model/ambassador campaign.
Make sure you join our Facebook page “LASTING IMPRESSIONS MODEL SEARCH 2019/2020”. It will be the place where we post important information such as: companies that are offering coupons for the coupon, photographers, videographers, etc. We will also use the group page to communicate and share thoughts, ideas and get encouragement!
