Re: Oscar Meyer mobile contest

If I won the use of the Oscar Meyer Wener mobile, I would have it delivered to the Ronald MacDonald House in Memphis, TN for the children staying there who are being treated at the St. Jude Hospital.

Thanks,

IF I WOULD WIN THE Oscar Meyer Weiner MOBILE FOR A DAY I WOULD Use it to help the Walmart I work at raise money for the childrens miracle network. So that more children can get the help they need.

Dan

If I were to win the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile for a Day, I would park it at the Elks Lodge I belong to, to help raise more funds for the Elks Major Project which helps out children with disabilities.

Barbara Festa/Joanne Lupo

If I had the Oscar Myer Weiner Mobile for a day I would drive to to Schnieder Childrens hospital and visit the children. I would give out plenty of hot dogs to the kids and if the company has any oscar myer promotional merchandise like minie weiner mobiles and shirts I would distribute them to the sick children as a courtesy of the Oscar Myer company to let the children know that we care and that they are in our thoughts and prayers. I believe a gesture such as this would be a great gift for the children who often only have medical tests and treatments to look forward to during the day. It would be an honor to participate in such an event.

Jacob Appleby

If I had the Oscar Myer Weiner Mobile for a day I would drive it to the 9-10 year old Little League State Championship in North Canton, Ohio.

Hello fellow hot dog people. If I could ride in the Oscar Myer Weiner Mobile, I'd run around town showing off how delicious Oscar Myer Weiners are! I would have a hot dog feista~! Giving away free hotdogs to the poor. Each person who would eat a hotdog would get 5 raffle tickets for the drawing. If they were to win, they would get a 10lb. package(s) of (or a) hotdog(s).

i would be so happy AND joyful to help my hungry commuinity and drive in the best car EVER!

ALL LOVE TO THE ONE AND ONLY OSCAR MYER WEINER MOBILE!!!

If, I had the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile for a day, I would pick up all of my friends and ride around to homeless shelters in the area. I would give the homeless families hotdogs. I would also have a loud speaker and tell everyone how good Oscar Mayer Weiners are while riding to and from the shelters.

Jennifer

If I were to win the Oscar Myer Weiner Mobile for a day I would drive over to a llama farm and put the llamas aboard. I would drive the llamas and myself to the circus and do tricks while handing out free hot dogs to the people that pay money for them.

If I had a chance to win a day driving the oscar meyer weiner mobile. I would do a selfish thing. I would go back to where I grew up. A place we skipped many a days to go to the beach. The highlight of our days on the sand was walking through the hot sand to the pier to eat a chili-cheese dog with mayonaise and the softest buns around. We would race back to our blankets tipping a ice cold bottle of Sun-Drop and munching on our delicious meaty oscar meyer weiners. At 13 I thought the world couldn't get any better than that and wish I could go back to the simplistic way of life. How just thinking of a hotdog brings back vivid memories to a time where the world was much safer and the biggest dilema was to wear the black bikini or the white one. Life didn't get much better than that in 1973. I would ride the mobile on the sand and pass out a bit of good food and fun and let the kids see something they will never see in these parts again.

Monongalia County Teens Against Tobacco Use Program

If our Teens Against Tobacco Use Program had the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile for just one day, we would love to drive it through our community during "The Great American Smoke Out" or "Kick Butts Day." As our high school participants presented their workshops on the dangers of tobacco we could pass out those delicious hot dogs. The theme would be "Be a WEINER (winner), Don't Smoke!" Who would EVER choose a cigarette over an Oscar Meyer hot dog???!!!!!!

I am a home care provider, and if I won the
mobile for a day, I would take drive around
to all the people that I knew that were
homebound. Just to see them smile would be
so rewarding. Those who could go for a ride
I would drive about town. We would stop
at daycares, and churches and just laugh.

There are so many homebound people that
were enjoy this day.

I hope I win for them.


Talib vaughn

If I could win the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile for a day, I would go to the place where Foster Kids are kept and put as many as I could inside and let them ride around with me, eating hotdogs and drinking sodas and eating icecream. I think that everyone deserves that one special day that they would remember forever.
I hope I win.

It would really be nice If I could do this for her so i really hope that I win!

sherry conley

hello, i live in n.j. and as a kid ,i remember the mobile driving around and playing the jingle.we loved it and also ate nothing but oscar meyer hot dogs.my two children also know of the weiner mobile,we have the whislle, and the hotwheels collector weiner mobile.if i won, first i would go pick up my two sons, go to the medford nursing home, so the older people could see it again and put a smile on their faces and know that they are thinking of their childhood, back when you had hotdogs everyday for lunch and dinner,making mud pies in the rain, in your bare feet. next i would love to take it on the atlantic city boardwalk , for everyone to see.

Dianne Roberts

I am a nurse at a retirement facility. What a joy it would be to see the weinermobile pull up at the door & take the seniors out for a ride & have a weiner cookout. Some of these people have few or no family this would be sunshine! after all "A DAY WITHOUT OSCAR MEYER " IS A DAY WITHOUT SUNSHINE!"

Renee Edmonds

If I were to win the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile for a day, I would drive it to the high school where I teach and use it as part of our ninth grade fall orientation. We are desperate to make school a welcoming and fun place for our students. The Weiner Mobil and Oscar Meyer Weiners represent fun. We want the kids to see school as more fun than the streets that offer nothing for them but destruction.

I would let all the children at Rivermont Elementary ride around the block. We would sell Oscar MyerWeiners and use the profits to buy well needed school supplies. At the meeting the first graders will perform for the parents. With this kind of excitement we should receive 100% attendance.

PLEASE "SING" ALOUD AS A JINGLE!!


OH I WISH I WON THE OSCAR MYER WEINER MOBILE...
OH WHAT A TREAT that WOULD BE!! CAUSE IF I WON THE OSCAR MYER WEINER MOBILE- I WOULD DRIVE AROUND AND LET EVERYONE KNOW HOW I FEEL. Because if I won the oscar myer weiner mobile everyone would want to ride with me!!

Mike Johns

While there are some heartwarming stories posted, I would respectfully suggest that it is exposure of the weinermobile to the most people. Beginning at 7:30 A.M. I would drive to my Daughters day care. Then I would drive through morning rush hour traffic in Charlotte, NC where I live (Hopefully a Friday). Then I would drive up to the Blue Ridge Parkway whedre there are alot of tourists. I would stop at a grocery store to put the mobile where it might sell enough dogs to take on the next leg. From the Blue ridge Mountains to the Beach. I would drive along I 40 ( I should be in Raleigh/Chapel Hill/Durham by early dinner and to Wilmington for a late foot long!!! Along the way I would call into radio stations to tell people what I'm doing for the day to get moer EXPOSURE for our beloved product.

george carpenter

If I won the Oscar Myer Mobile for a day, I would bring it to the IWK hospital for sick children. They probably have never seen it before, and as some of them don't get a chance to go outside and play, having the chance to see this famous (moving landmark) would lift their spirits higher then have likely been for a long time. Plus I'm a big kid at heart and love the Oscar Myer mobile

peggy hopkins

if I had the oscar myer mobile for a day i would take it to deliver with a program in our community called meals on wheels this is a program that provides meals to the elderly and the homebound this would so make alot of people smile.

sarah

If I could ride in the Oscar Myer weiner mobile for one day I would take my friend who has been through so much, and I would go to West Point- an army base and i would invite the soliders and their families to come to a barbecue- they've done a lot for our country and THEY deserve it!

Joseph J Rumell

If I could use the Oscar Myer Weiner Mobile truck for a week. I would take it on a Road Rally with the Partnership for Peace(P4P)starting in California and stopping at several Pit stops for concerts and dinners to benefit several charitable organizations such as the Red Cross ,EnviroPure Industries, Afghanistan World Foundation and many others to be announced that are helping to solve World and domestic problems. The
Rally will be promoting a week of peace for all Americans and Nations around the world. "Everyone needs a day of peace to enjoy an Oscar Myer Weiner."
If you give them peace you must give them something to do. So givem a weiner,a cold drink,a concert and a Rally for Peace Across America to watch.
This Rally Begins the first week of September on Sunset Blvd. In California and will finish at the UN Steps right after 9/11. Will you join us for a Week of Peace and Rally with us for those that are lost in battle and those that were lost in the Trade Towers.

Thank You & Peace to all

If I won the oscar mayer weiner mobile for a week I would go to all the homeless shelters and foster care places and give food to them. They would probably really appriciate it. I would also take a chance to see symphonys along the coast.

Brian Henderson

If I had the Weiner Mobile for a day I'd drive across Hood Canal Bridge to Port Townsend, take the Port Townsend/Keystone ferry to Whidbey Island, take the Clinton/Mukilteo ferry to Mukilteo, take I-5 to Edmunds, take the Edmunds/Kingston ferry to Kingston, drive to Bainbridge Island, take the Bainbridge/Seattle ferry to Seattle, drive thru downtown Seattle, & take the Seattle/Bremerton ferry to Bremerton.

Jody Campbell, RN

I am the Clinical Director for Bay Nursing, Inc. In Mobile, Alabama.
If I had the Weiner Mobile for a day I would brighten the day of my senior patients. I strive to see the sparkle in their eyes of their inner child. We all remember the young children, but I would like for a day to honor our senior children.

Dylan Breglio

Oh, I wish I had the Oscar Myer Weinermobile for a day. My 4th birtday to be exact, to ride up to the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs with my best 4 year old buddies from pre-school. That is what I'd really like to do. And if I had the Oscar Myer Weinermobile we would have an Oscar Myer picnic on top of the world!

Maria Carter

If I won that wonderful fantastic Oscar Myer Weinermoblie hotdog with fast wheels for day. Don would drive it to Lakeworth, Texas pull in to the YMCA, on Boat club Rd. And celebrate the end of summer with a blast of Hotdogs served right off the Weiner mobile. The children and their families would start the school year with fond memories of hotdogs from the best hot dog company in the world "Oscar Myer".

Jim Shelton

If I won the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile for a day, I would drive it through our Nations Capital where everyone could see the Mobile and get pictures of it in from of some of our Nation's landmark sites. I would also like to give out Oscar Meyer Hot dogs, if I did not eat them all myself.

Amanda Musgrave

I think the weanermobile would make the most awsome ride for us to go to the senior prom in. Cant you just see the looks it would get when arriving.

Cindy Hooper

I would love to win the Weinermobile for a day and suprise my nephew, Colby at elementary school here in North Carolina. Colby is ten years old and has some physical problems (studdering and overactive salivary glands) and well, we all know how cruel your peers can be when someone is "different." By winning the Weinermobile, and showing up at his school with his mom, Grandma and Greatgrandma, I would hope that Colby could shine as a "cool kid" and win the admiration of his fellow schoolmates, thereby making friends and life, in general, a lot easier for him!
Thanks Oscar Myer!

Miss Wells

If I had the opportunity to win the Oscar Myer Weiner mobile for a day ... I would use it as a tool for outreach to children in the community.
As a teacher, the sad reality of many children's lives becomes appparent to me on a daily basis as I reach and teach needy children ... Over the years it has become increasingly apparent how important I am in their lives ... for many of them I am the one person who provides the stability, nuture, and unconditional love and acceptance they so desperately need. In addition, for many I am the only one who provides them with the tools they need inorder to have a solid foundation upon which they can build their lives ... challenging them to be the best that they can be ... giving them a real sense of hope for their future ...
Many of the children I teach have never even had a book read to them before entering my classroom ... It is through reading that I begin to open up their world ... instilling in them a love for reading and learning...
Seeing their little faces light up as they eargerly anticipate the events in a story is one of the most heartwarming experiences ... And as the children grow as readers ... I gradually release the responsibility to the chidren ... It is then that I see their self-esteem begin to grow enabling them to develop confidence in their abilities as they dare to dream ...
It is for this reason that I would like to use the mobile to plan a picnic in which children in the community would be able to enjoy an Oscar Myer Weiner hotdog, listen to a story and receive a free book. The Oscar Myer Weiner mobile would become a "reading" dog for a day ... that would forever be imprinted in the minds of these special children ...

Hilda Baldyga   ( Bens' mom)

July 2 a wonderful day. Kristin and Ben begin plans in a big way. A hardworking couple, teacher and business man. Creating the blueprint of the wedding plan. West Virginia, we will all go. Caravan in rain or snow. The year 2006 will come at a rapid pace. I have hopes the Weinermobile will help some family members find the place. From NJ to WV,what a haul. Those in the Weinermobile would have a ball. ********* Kristin Palmer and Ben Baldyga to wed in autumn 2006. Thanks. Have a peaceful summer. H. Baldyga Bens' mom

If I could use the wiener mobile for one day it would be for the Weiner Dog Derby in St. Louis MO. We have two Daschunds that race each year, Sadie she's 4 and Darby who is almost 1. We have been taking Sadie since she was a pup, there are THOUSANDS of Wieners everywhere. It is fun and I would lover to show them off as we step out of the Wiener Mobile!!!!

If I had the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile I would drive it up & down Castro Street in San Francisco to all of the cheers of the gay community!!! I would petition to drive it in the Gay Pride Parade with all of my gorgeous sistas..

Gwen Lawson

If I won the use of the weiner mobile I would take it to the cleveland clinic to feed and entertain the children, elderly and cancer patients in the hospital. I would also take it down the street to Rainbow Babies hospital to entertain and feed them also. Then I'd also take it back to my neighborhood (Warrensville Hts., Ohio) and entertain and feed the children and elderly at the Warrensville senior citizen center. This would give everyone a chance to get out and have fun and eat the best hot dogs in the world.

Sharon

I wanted to see how you would go about having the weiner mobile come out to our race rack for the kids.
We have alot of special events and alot of kids come out to see the
races and we would love to have the weiner mobile come out to see the
kids and have a little fun. Please email me how we would go about getting this setup.
We are from Louisiana.

MINIDOKA COUNTY SENIOR CENTER  BARBARA J. MILLER-GARCIA

I thought that while the WeinerMobile was traveling through the country they might stop at our Center at 702 11th Street, Rupert, ID 83350 (208) 436-9107 and spend a day delivering "Meals On Wheels" to physically and/or financially disabled seniors in our community. The menu would include Oscar Mayer Weiners, of course!!! Delivery begins about 11:00 a.m. and is usually completed by 1:00 p.m. Hope to hear back from you.

Nicole Gray

My mom is turning 50 years old the week after next, on March 5th. Her dream gift and goal in life is to take a ride in the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile. She has visited a replica at the Henry Ford Musuem in Dearborn, MI numerous times, which has given her this aspiration. I want nothing more than to give my mom what she really wants and deserves on one of her most memorable birthdays. She has given my family so much, that this is the one gift in which I know I can begin to return the favor from her years of time and generosity.
The thought and sight of the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile makes her face light up! It would really be a dream come true if the Weinermobile could make a stop in our neighborhood, in Livonia, Michigan.
I greatly appreciate your thoughts and considerations! Thank you!!!

Olga J. Ortiz

I am a grandmother of a future graduate from High school, and she was a little girl I always told her I would have the weinermobile for her to ride arround in on that day. She is a terrific kid straight A and a very sensible girl, and plus she is beautiful. You would have quite a group of people, and think of the publicity. You would make a grandmothers wish come true and help me fulfil a wish I had for her. Thank you from the bottom of my heart weather you acept this or not, thank you OLGA ORTIZ By the way this would be in the Year 2009...
