Do Good, Get PR

As I have mentioned before on here, is full of awesome, community minded shop owners. Good example is Jim Garnand, owner of Hi-Tech Auto Repair in Phoenix. He called me last week and asked for my help in spreading the word about his “Name Your Own Oil Change” idea. After the news of Officer Barry Scott’s death after a charity boxing match, Jim had a personal reason to do something for the family of Officer Scott. His brother in Tucson was in a similiar situation, didn’t die, though, but Jim knew how hard this had to be on the family. So, Jim decided to let people name their own price for an oil change. The donation will go to a bank account in Scott’s family’s name.  I sent this info out, and within minutes I heard back from Jim saying reporters were calling. I didnt even have to pick up the phone…it was a relevant, timely, community idea that was offering a “deal” for a good cause.
Thank you to KTAR, FOX 10, ABC 15 and the Phoenix Republic for helping to spread the word.
