We're still looking for non-profits who need publicity…

I am repeating the same info from my last blog post because we’re still looking for non-profit organizations who need publicity for my class at Rider University. September will be here soon…

Thanks for any suggestions you might offer!

I’m teaching COM341 Publicity Methods at Rider University in the fall semester starting in September. In this course, we’ll be working with “real” clients — non-profit organizations who don’t have big budgets to hire consultants or agencies. In the past, we’ve worked with non-profits in the Mercer County, NJ area (Rider is located in Lawrenceville, NJ) and created traditional media kits for these organizations.

As times have changed and the Internet has “expanded” our world and our reach, I don’t think it’s necessary to remain local to NJ this semester when we select our clients. Also, new this semester, we’ll be using an e-book as our textbook: How to Be a Kick-Butt Publicity Hound by Joan Stewart and Tom Antion.

So, I’m in the process of reviewing potential “clients” for my students for COM341 Publicity Methods. If you know a non-profit organization that needs publicity, please tweet me @kathymagrino or post your ideas and comments here. Thank you!

  1. Ms. Magrino:

    Hindsight 20/20 Inc. is a non-profit in Lawrenceville, GA that is helping homeless drug addicted men and women to not only recover from addiction but to help them to get off the streets. So far, one woman, the Executive Director Deidre Badu, has done everything herself, and she’s reached the point where she just can’t do it herself anymore. We could definitely use the help of you and your class to get the word out about the program. Please contact me at wandaj@hindsight2020.org

Currently we have several hundred PM’s that are looking for work and have a Career Fair scheduled this September. We also have monthly dinner meetings and Advanced Topic Seminars that we need to promote on an ongoing basis. We would welcome working with your students to create a media kit for our organization. Thank you for your consideration.

      Hi, Lori! Thank you for this information. We’ve had such a big response to our request, it’s going to take a few weeks to sort through everything. But, I will definitely be in touch with you again in the coming weeks. Thanks, again!
