Paint it green...even in Australia!

"Paint it green", they say! And mean celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Some of you might go for a more religious celebration, others might join the next Pub. Some might go out on the streets and make music or join a parade.

Whatever you are doing today: We wish you all the best, and a lot of fun!



Australia has a quite huge number of people with Irish ancestry. Estimations are from 10 up to 30 percent of the "Aussies"...so they might celebrate St. Patrick's as well. However, please remember our campaign we started a few days ago. The Australian National American Football Team still needs help. They wanna go and join the IFAF Worldgames hosted by USA, and need some little money to fly around the world for playing on the grid. Keep in mind, we are talking about non-pro structures! Now those guys added a lot of likes to our Facebook page and started campaigning on Twitter - so they helped you, dear RedZoneAction.org Managers in gaining Credits. Time to pay back, right?

Sláinte!

PS: We sent out a few Credits to each of you. May you use them wise, by playing scrimmage games, or joining a friendly cup.

Support the Australian National American Football team, and the game...

Later this year in summer, the IFAF American Football World Championship will happen - hosted by USA.

The Team of Australia is going to hit the event, and to play some good Football. But they need help!



So we thought "if we run our next Social Media Campaign, why not adding some support for those guys?" - and here we go!

This time our Social Media Campaign will be a bit special, since we don't just raise our Social Media counts - No, we are going to support the Australian American Football Team and their attempt to enter the World Championship.

Why do we support the Australian Team at all? Personal things....the Australian Head Coach is John Leijten, and the same guy is the Head Coach of my local Football Team called the Dresden Monarchs. You see, the world is a village! He was the guy drawing my attention to this, and since we have a few Australian members in our community, why not supporting the Australian guys and their attempt to be the "World Champion"!

So, as always we are awarding Credits for goals described below, but we are also sending a share from our income we get when you guys purchase Supporter accounts or Credits - and send this money to the Australian Football guys.

The campaign will run until 30th of April 2015. Then it counts:

1. Purchases, to support the Australian American Football Team
10 % of the income from all purchases will be sent to the Team, just to support their attempt for getting this World Champion hardware. Just remember, the guys will have to fly around the globe, for playing some Football. Sent from a country where American Football has the importance of Cheeserolling in Ghana - those guys have our respect for living their dreams, and working hard for making this dreams happen, finally.
