Jeans Day at my work to benefit Pre-eclampsia Fdn.

I wrote a while ago that my company is going to sponsor a jeans day to benefit the Pre-Eclampsia Foundation. How it work is the employees can pay $3 to the charity and they get to wear jeans for the day. Anyway, the jeans day is going to be in November and I am responsible for "advertising" around our building. I only have an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper so I need to get the most important information on there to spread awareness, but I don't want it so crowded that people don't read it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Stephanie, advertising is the sort of thing our PR Guru Eleni excels at and she can help you with a flyer- her email is eleni@preeclampsia.org and I'll send this topic to her!

Is there any way we could see the flyer when y'all are done with it?

What a great fundraising idea! If others have done days like this at your job, why don't you use one that you thought was especially good as a template. We can help you drop in the most relevant pe info. Carol Hamilton, the national group coordinator, and I are planning to have ready several "templates" for all the groups around the country who want to advertise meetings, announce fundraisers, and the like. Please email me directly. Thank you.
