Public Service Announcements

Many radio stations will announce free PSAs for worthy causes. Every station accepts them a bit differently; some stations have a web site form where you just paste it in, others want it sent to them via email or mail. If you are able to check your local radio stations, especially those that are Christian (and let them know we are a Christian ministry and II week is part of our annual outreach) it would be really helpful!

TEMPLATE TO SEND TO RADIO STATIONS ABOUT PSAs

Just copy what is in the gray area below and add your name at the end. Then send it to the radio stations. If you do not see an area on the web site that specifically says who to send the email to, make your best guess--usually one that is general such as "info@..." or "media@..."

You can also FAX it. Click here for the letter on our stationary, just add your name at the bottom.

Use the subject line "PSA for September-STATE-CITY, NAME, CALL LETTERS"

For example "PSA for September-CA-Arcata KCHP-LP 97.1 FL"

This way if you get responses it will be easy to keep track of who is airing them.

Greetings,
I am writing to see if your radio station would provide the opportunity for people to become more
aware of the nearly 1 in 2 Americans who have a chronic illness by airing one of the PSAs below.

National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week is the annual outreach of Rest Ministries and HopeKeepers Magazine, a ministry for the chronically ill and an affiliate of Joni and Friends, the international ministry of Joni Eareckson Tada. Recent press releases can be found at our web site under "media."

Your time is precious so I will keep this short. The PSAs are below. We'd love to hear from you if
airing them is a possibility. We would be happy to link your radio station on our web site as a "thank you."

Our director, Lisa Copen, is also available for talk shows and has been a guest on Joni E. Tada's
radio show, Billy Graham's Decision Today and others. She can be reached at lisa@invisibleillness.com or 888-751-7378 (voice mail, she will call you back.)

Thank you for your consideration.
Respectfully,

*****ADD YOUR NAME****

30 seconds = 86 words- KILL DATE Sept 16th

Did you know that nearly 1 in 2 people live with a chronic illness and only about 4% of these people use a cane or wheelchair. Your best friend may have a chronic illness and you may not even know it. That's because most illnesses are invisible, and this can be confusing and frustrating for everyone.

Invisible Illness Awareness Week is Sept 10-16, sponsored by HopeKeepers Magazine, which serve the chronically ill.
