WRITE EDUCATIONAL ARTICLES TO HELP WOMEN STAY SAFE for The Resist Attack Foundation

( Copywriting )

Project Details

We have a lot of raw material - around 400 articles on subjects related to self-defense and safety. We need a smaller number of new articles written that summarize some of this information (and perhaps more info taken from the internet). We'll include links to any external references. The articles should be in the form of an introductory paragraph or two, bullet points, and a closing paragraph. Very easily digested facts on each subject.

On Saturday April 27th, 2012, Helping the Aging, Needy and Disabled will partner with Faith in Action Caregivers and AGE of Central Texas to host their first annual boot sale. This event is heavily influenced by British culture by having individuals sell their own merchandise out of the trunk of their car. It is like a garage sale but with a twist. Vendors will pay a fee to secure a spot for the day and will keep the benefits of the sale or have the option to donate the proceeds to one of the organizations involved.

MARKETING TO NEW GENERATION for The Texas Observer

( Public Relations Plan )

Project Details

The Texas Observer needs your help. Founded in 1954, we are still the best investigative reporting journal in the state, telling the stories that the mainstream media either can not or does not tell. We have a team of crack journalists that conduct muckraking journalism with passion and flair. But we are still not doing what we need to do to get the word out about our publication. One way that we could be doing much better outreach is by getting our reporters more publicity. While they do occasional interviews, we need to find ways to continuously have our reporters talking about their stories and the Observer to print, radio and tv media. We also need to find ways to have them serve as speakers for groups, events and gatherings.
