I want to send the HWC press release to our local newspapers. Do I just send it to the Newspaper main address, and put it attention "press release"???I am a little confused. Has anyone done this, and gotten any response?
Cindycooks said:Andrea or Gillian - can I ask what you dropped or are dropping off to the paper for your press release? This is a great idea. I am pretty tight with the girls in the marketing dept at my paper - I've done vendor fairs with them twice and am getting ready to drop off a HWC packet - but a press release type thing would be awesome!

Everyone I have spoke with about possible fundraisers has been very glad to hear that I care about their needs enough to sacrifice my own commission, and I tell them that I feel the bookings that come from the fundraiser will create more business for me.. so they feel good in asking for bookings.. we both help each other.. I have confidence that it not just works out in the end, but gives overflowing blessings to both parties involved. Our budget is super tight as well, and we are in need of extra money to pay bills and eliminate a good bit of debt.. But I feel that when we have a need, we sow a seed. If we need money, then we give away some of what we have, and God does return -- poured into our lap, great, pressed down, and running over.

I don't want to start a debate, but I do want everyone to know that it is an option to work your butt off for the cause, and still keep your commission with your karma intact. I am keeping my commission no matter what people say, and it is a personal choice to work extra hard to make up for the potential income I would have donated.

Its very dissapointing to see people assume they know better than someone else. I guess all I'm saying is you do whats right for you and try not to judge others.
