Not sure if you saw some of our prior posts, but we made several promises about how we’d work to improve Cardz for Kidz overall impact. We agreed that we would first stop by updating our How To page, then the next time we wrote a personal story on our blog. Finally, we said if we didn’t meet our goal we’d start reaching out to different news sources. Here’s proof:
Tweet to the Ann Arbor News
Tweet to a newscaster in Cleveland, OH
Please let us know if you have any recommendations on how we can spread the word. Currently we haven’t heard back from any of those news channels, but we’ll keep trying. To this day, not many people have heard of us. Even some of the people who have participated in our organization, don’t know our name. In addition to contacting newspapers, we tried adding #cardsforkids just in case there were people who were using that in order to increase awareness. So much of our time now is looking into the future and thinking about how we can grow, but we’re thankful for the groups who were proud enough to support us, even before a newspaper or news channel responded.
We are an ORGANIZATION OF OUR WORD and we are continually trying to find ways to increase awareness. These next few months we’ll continue to do EVERYTHING possible to get MORE cardz to MORE kidz (e.g. call and/or simply stop by a news station).
