  19. 19. P O R T R A I T S O F V A L O R E X H I B I T I O N Benefits to the MOH Character Development Program •  The exhibition serves as a dramatic and emotional focal point providing the CDP campaign the instant momentum, context and gravitas it deserves. •  Why are the malls the best venue for the POV exhibit?   Malls provide a gathering place and serve more than the singular purpose of shopping. People of all ages and walks of life but in particular, America’s youth and their parents frequent malls far more than they do museums. The Medal of Honor
  20. 20. P O R T R A I T S O F V A L O R E X H I B I T I O N Benefits to the MOH Character Development Program •  The POV tour enables the CDP to be concurrently unveiled in each of the eight metropolitan areas enabling them to take advantage of the media attention and momentum generated by the POV exhibition. •  CDP can take advantage of the halo effect of the POV exhibition. With the emotional stories and images, the CDP will have a powerful backdrop that will offer context and gravity to its message. People being emotionally engaged by the exhibit will be more receptive and aware of the value the CDP offers. •  With literally millions of mall visitors, the CDP has the opportunity to make its case in a compelling and immediate way. There is no other environment more relevant and appropriate to readily reach and recruit educators and enlist parents to encourage local schools to adopt the program. The Medal of Honor
  21. 21. P O R T R A I T S O F V A L O R E X H I B I T I O N Benefits to the MOH Character Development Program •  Publicity opportunities: •  The CDP can not only piggyback on POV media opportunities, but it stands to benefit from the media exposure the POV exhibit garners and the resulting increased foot traffic. •  Additionally, CDP media packets can be sent to the area print, TV, radio and special publications offering a MOH recipient as a interview subject related to the CDP. The Medal of Honor
  22. 22. P O R T R A I T S O F V A L O R E X H I B I T I O N Benefits to the MOH Character Development Program •  Aligning with the POV exhibit offers the CDP additional opportunities and context by offering high-level meetings with area superintendents, principals and school board members hosted by a MOH recipient in advance of the exhibit coming to the area. •  In addition to teachers, superintendents and local school board members, athletic directors/coaches should be invited to take its teams to the exhibit to understand the true meaning of “service above self.” The Todd Helton PSA could be used and tagged to promote this concept. •  With the assistance of a digital kiosk with high-quality content, viewers of the exhibit can also see how the messaging from this powerful exhibit can play an integral role in shaping young lives. The kiosk and display area could be manned by a CDP representative who can answer questions and recruit educators, parents and students to distribute information. The Medal of Honor
  23. 23. P O R T R A I T S O F V A L O R E X H I B I T I O N Benefits to the MOH Character Development Program •  From their interaction with educators, parents and students, and other concerned and involved citizens, CDP representatives can develop a viable database for follow-up communications. •  Among numerous other functions, the CDP digital kiosk could be set up to enable parents to send “support emails” directly to the local school boards and superintendents while they are most immediately affected and motivated, thanks to the exhibit. •  The current exhibit proposal already includes the scheduling of visits by area school children which provides an ideal opportunity to include the CDP before, during and after the school visit.

  42. 42. P O R T R A I T S O F V A L O R E X H I B I T I O N Questions & Answers What is the exhibit, and how is it set to align with the Saluting America Foundation and Taubman Properties? This one-of-a-kind photographic exhibition is like no other in its breadth, depth and quality. The exhibition consists of large-format black and white images accompanied by a personal message from each recipient as well as a brief description of their courageous action that compelled Congress to bestow on them our nation’s highest military honor. The exhibit is the centerpiece of Saluting America Foundation’s mission to honor military service past and present as well as enhance the legacy of the Medal of Honor. This visual tribute received critical acclaim when first displayed during the Medal of Honor Society’s convention in Denver in 2008 at a Taubman Property. Based on the highly successful Denver experience, Taubman is excited about partnering with the Saluting America Foundation to showcase this moving tribute at its many centers nationwide.   How will the MOH Society and the Character Development Program (CDP) benefit? The exhibition will serve as a magnet to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors who have never been exposed to the CDP. Among them are teachers, educators, parents, school district leaders, and potential funders. Taubman intends to involve local school districts nearby each Taubman Center to bring students and teachers to view and interact with the exhibit. An on-site display and representative can enlist interested visitors’ support, as well as respond to their questions. The Medal of Honor
  43. 43. P O R T R A I T S O F V A L O R E X H I B I T I O N Questions & Answers What are the benefits to the MOH Society and/or MOH Foundation? Multitudes of visitors will gain a deeper understanding and an appreciation for the MOH, while perpetuating the legacy of the MOH and helping to fulfill both the Society’s and MOH Foundation’s mission. In essence, the exhibit will increase public awareness on a grand scale and in a very personal, intimate setting for visitors. Media coverage is assured. It provides opportunities to solicit nominees for the Citizen Honors Program via special on-site events. It will spark book sales and provide honorariums for participating recipients.   Why are the Taubman Centers an appropriate venue for the exhibition? Although an exhibition of this historical significance deserves to be displayed in major military, history and/or art museums, such traditional museum settings neither attract the magnitude of visitors who frequent the Taubman Centers on a weekly basis nor the wide demographic range in age, ethnicity and educational backgrounds. The Medal of Honor
  44. 44. P O R T R A I T S O F V A L O R E X H I B I T I O N Questions & Answers What are the Taubman Centers’ visitors demographics? Nearly all of the proposed venues each attract more than one million visitors monthly. Taubman Centers’ visitors typically encompass visitors of all ages and income levels offering a wide cross-section of the American public.   Why are sponsors needed and who are the likely sponsors? Taubman requires funding to pay for the travel, set-up and display of the exhibition, as well as to fund coordination of outreach to the media and local schools. We believe that numerous Fortune 500 companies would have a strong interest helping to facilitate such outreach. In addition to media and other in-kind sponsors, potential interested financial sponsors include those now associated with military-related marketing such as major defense contractors/sub-contactors, Jeep and other auto manufacturers, financial institutions, consumer brands and national foundations. The Medal of Honor
  45. 45. P O R T R A I T S O F V A L O R E X H I B I T I O N Questions & Answers Are the proposed Taubman Centers firm or are other Taubman sites available? In addition to the properties proposed currently by Taubman, Taubman has 13 other properties located throughout the country. The cities shown in the proposal are suggested sites provided by Taubman due to the large military presence in each area and the ability to accommodate the exhibition at such properties during such dates. Depending upon alignment with Taubman’s scheduling interests, Taubman (and the Saluting America Foundation) may revise the list of venues and the dates of exhibition.   Are there other venues that would attract similar demographics and visitor numbers? Possibly. NASCAR events, NFL and MLB stadiums, as well as other large events and public attractions, to name a few. However, none may attract the same wide cross-section of citizens as the Taubman Centers.   Who will financially benefit from this exhibition tour? Taubman Properties, retailers in the Taubman Centers, exhibition suppliers and sponsors. The Medal of Honor
