Contact the building, monument or statue; find information on their website; call or email them directly and ask what the process for a request of this nature would be. You can provide them with the #LightItUp4HD Information Sheet.
|3||Once the process is confirmed use the #LightItUp4HD Contact Letter Template, insert your information and email to your contact person.|

|5||Official confirmation. Some buildings, monuments and statues will want official confirmation that Huntington's Victoria is supporting this campaign. That's no problem at all. Simply forward the request to email@example.com and we'd be happy to confirm that you are working on our behalf.|
