12 Jul Hey Media, I Have A Story!
Two days ago I was contacted via Twitter (@JessGrossman), and my Facebook… and the Uncover Ostomy page by a reporter named Jonathan Sher from the London Free Press in London, Ontario.
He reallllly wanted to get into contact with me so that he could write an article about the campaign. I could not put it into words how grateful I was that he wanted to help spread the word.
Since we started this in 2009, it’s been extremely hard to garner the attention of the media. For some reason, no one wants to write about bags! (Ok, I guess I understand why… but that’s the reason I started the campaign!) So whenever I am approached by someone who has a voice, someone who can help spread the word beyond my capabilities, I am in their debt.
Today, the article was published with amazing response!
Following this article, I was messaged by a guy from 106.9 the X radio station in London who also wanted to interview me!
This is why the media is so important, one article can help snowball the message to others which will spread the word to even more people!
It’s been a difficult process, getting the media’s attention, but slowly, we’re getting there.
If you want to hear the interview (not sure if it’s live or not) I’m calling him in about 3 minutes (2:30pm EST). Edit: I was told it would be on the 5pm newscast! You can listen here
Keep spreading the word!
