media outreach?[edit]

Sue, thanks so much for compiling and sharing these reports, it is always great to see how much the Foundation is doing as time progresses.

I notice that in each report there has been a list of media with which the Foundation has had contact - is that generally interviews requested by the media, or is the Foundation also reaching out to the media? (or some combination of the two)

--Mike.lifeguard:
Generally, it's people getting in touch with us. We do very little active media outreach -- in fact, we probably do zero.
There is also lots of media contact in addition to that list -- for example Jimmy, and many of the chapters, do interviews that don't show up there. But it's a pretty comprehensive list of who Jay's been talking to, and the level of overall media interest in a given month. Thanks, Sue
