Great Patty, I'll cover the mid-western part
Hey, O, way to go OHIO.
If everyone picks up a section we can cover our state.
I would say a great big yes to the above. See the Press Release thread for the official release Jenna's working on. I've copied it into a wordprocessor document and added my local info where indicated, you should do the same and have it ready for when Jenna says it's okay to start sending it out. Keep checking that thread in case she makes any final changes to the wording.Chapters as one major bookstore as well as some independents (as well as Hallmark stores, libraries, etc.). And there are the local newspapers, etc. (In fact, there was as article done in a smaller paper here just a couple years ago on my greeting card publications with Blue Mountain Arts). What do you think of my approaching these venues? Would I give them a copy of the press release and posters, with the mention of my contribution to the anthology?
I'm really not sure about this since all the proceeds are being generated in the US and the donations being made from there. Mind you, wouldn't hurt to tell them what we're up to. Even though none of the actual funds will be passing through the Canadian chapter, maybe they'd help us by posting the link to storiesofstrength.com on the Canadian Red Cross site, you never know.Also, do I contact the local Canadian Red Cross in my area about this?
