This past Wednesday I decided to write a letter to some of the news outlets around Vancouver. I wanted to bring attention to Charlie and SMA as well as the Adventure Challenge my friends and myself are taking part in on Saturday, September 11th. By Thursday morning the Vancouver Province, Vancouver Sun, and City TV had called back! I knew that this issue and the challenge would make for interesting news, but I certainly didn't expect three outlets to call me back...and so soon! AND, both of the newspaper articles were out by this morning...and we were on the FRONT PAGE of the Province! So amazing!
Starting at around 10pm last night, after the online versions of the interviews were released, my email, my blog views and comments, and my sponsorship for the challenge began to blow up! Amazing what a little press can do! I want to thank everyone who's sponsored me, everyone who'd like to sponsor me but can't afford to right now, everyone who's emailed kind words and good thoughts, and everyone who is rooting for my family...I love that you love Charlie, but I can definitely understand why! She's an amazing little angel who has proven she's here to change hearts and lives.
Please watch City TV Monday for our interview from Canuck Place Children's Hospice.
I will leave links to the two newspaper articles and the adventure challenge sponsorship page, below. Thanks everyone!
