Create facebook page and start getting the word out (jump in the sack with me). Provide downloadable press kits, recruitment kits, links, etc. for each organization to share with local media outlets, campus papers, and organization websites to recruit participants and promote event locally.
Secure commitments through facebook or RA microsite with form for groups to order sacks and shirts.
Submit RA-level press releases using Digg, blogs, and other online social media news outlets and channels.
