Thread: "The Difference Makers" "It's not about money'

    Louisiana Campus "The Difference Makers" "It's not about money'


      Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns operate with an overall athletic budget of $8 million, a figure that is dwarfed by many Division 1-A programs in the country against which UL must compete for attention, recruiting and success.

    If the school is going to amplify that budget, it will take outside support.

    It's a staggering amount of work for one person to enlist that backing.

    For 10, it's more reasonable. For 100, things can move quickly.
    The Difference Makers, a group formed 3 1/2 months ago by UL Athletic Development Coordinator Gerald Hebert, is beginning to live up to its name.

    "This is all very new to most of them," Hebert said. "I come up with the projects to improve facilities and move the program forward, then contact them.

    "They have to be willing to network. Having 60 to 100 people work on that is infinitely better than one, as far as getting the message out that we are committed to improving the program.

    "Donating money is part of it, but I also rely on them to take a project and run with it so we can get it done faster and more efficiently."

    The Difference Makers is a group with GREAT potential.

    In my opinion its roots are anchored in an early 2002 fan group known as United Louisiana Cajuns

    It is a great way to tie your contacts and resources to other people and their resources to continue to find ways to help grow the Louisiana programs.

    Many of you are difference makers for the Cajuns your just not officially on the Difference makers listing. By getting on the list you provide to Gerald and all the other Difference makers your address, email, and phone contact numbers.

    Become a Difference Maker and you too will be surprised just how much Difference you can make!!

    DaddyCajun is a member of the Difference Makers you could and Should become one too!!!

    How do we join?

    Are there monthly meetings?

    Do we officially become part of an organization or group such as TAF?

    I would feel better about being part of say monthly meetings and discussions rather than just send a check!
