PRs Needed for Pro-bono Work for Afghan Women's Writing Project & Wardford Foundation

Hi everyone.

There has been so many inquiries from those who want to work with our company and put their skills to work. Unfortunately, we are not hiring and have a long intern waiting list. HOWEVER, we do have leads that I hope you would be interested in.

Because our company limits itself to so many probono projects each year, we are unable to assist with the following great programs and hope that you can volunteer your services to them:
  1. Afghan Women's Writing Project- AWWP pairs women in Afghanistan with professional women writers (here in the States) for secure online writing workshops.
  2. The Warford Foundation -a non-profit organization (registered in Maryland) that was created to assist military widows and single mothers through financial assistance in their pursuit of successfully completing nursing program

Afghan Women's Writing Project
A fellow PR recently had to step down from her volunteer position as their PR advisor so we hope someone out there can help. This will be a great opportunity for new PRs who wants to build their resume and credibility. It's really an amazing and well-ran organization.

The former PR has helped out in the following areas so this will give you an idea of where to pick up where she left off: 

  • press outreach
  • responding to reporter inquiries
  • and developing overall communications strategy
If you're interested or even just curious about how you might lend a hand, please contact Susan Solomon at <sussol@gmail.com>.

The Warford Foundation
They are also seeking the same scope of work. Because this foundation is fairly new, they will probably also need the following:
  • a media kit
  • an updated press release
  • someone who is able to assist with fundraisers and events
  • etc... 
I think the best candidate to assist them should be someone who is familiar with military and military media- to get them in their publications and can get them involved at military events (at least set up a table with their info). 

Here is a recent article our company has written for them: http://alistprfirm.blogspot.com/2012/05/retired-soldiermother-helps-military.html

If you are interested in volunteering your services for The Warford Foundation, please email  info@thewarfordfoundation.org

Please share this information to any PRs you know. 

Thank you so much!
