Christina, throw Kathy an email- volunteers@pe.org (spell it out)- and she ought to be able to tell you what comes next- you'll need some brochures, and they might be able to send you the banner. You can also put something in the community section of the adn.

I'd love to come out and sit with you, if you don't mind!

Here are my tips:
-Get as many different magzines/articles with PE in the news or of celebrity stories. Recent Pregnancy mag, Trista from the Bachlorette, Marcia from Desparte Housewives. These have all been in the last year.

-Print out a copy of the Annual report. I put mine in a binder with plastic sleeves.

-Print out some copies of the most recent Volunteer news. People will pick them up and read them too.

I've got to run to work, but that is a start. I'll be back tonight and give you some more ideas.

Signed up for a baby fair in April!

Postby alaskamommy » Thu Mar 06, 2008 03:01 am

Last month when I was looking for a place to do the bake sale, I ended up talking at length with the PR director for our local hospital. I was unable to hold the sale there after all, but it was so providential that we spoke ... you guessed it, she's had PE and was very unimpressed by the seemingly general lack of info out there, even by many docs. So she's all excited to know about the PF now,and I am now signed up to host a table at the hospital's baby fair on April 11th.

I've got plenty of brochures and magnets to hand out, but what else should I do? Who should I contact for help in setting this up? Shoudl I plan on setting up some kid of display? I have no experience with anything like this, so I need lots of advice. =)

I'm also going to be selling my soaps and lotions and things with the PF label, so it will be a small fundraising opportunity as well!
