Pay It Forward by donating towards the cost of the STTM Publicist!
WHAT IS THIS PAGE ABOUT?? The last three months of 2011, I, Janie, paid for a publicist for STTM out of my own savings. It was a way to reach more folks who linger on T4-only. Then, January and February were paid for by many generous donations by thyroid patients–$1500 total each month. All of it resulted in great interviews which reached more folks–you can see them below. But it took a lot of donations to come up with the amount each month, and they started to fall. The contract with the publicist ended.
So, there are two ways you can still help if you find this page: 1) THE MOST AFFORDABLE: consider donating to the expensive hosting fees for this huge website. You’ll see that at the bottom right of the homepage. I don’t care if it’s $20 or $50 or $100. It will help keep this site up. 2) THE MOST EXPENSIVE: for those who have it, I am only going to ask for a full month of publicist fees: $1500. It will enable me to immediately contact the publicist and start her going on with interviews and articles to reach more folks.
Janie A. Bowthorpe, representing Stop the Thyroid Madness LLC, has hired a top-notch boutique publicity firm, PR by the Book in Austin Texas, to help spread the word to those still on T4-only meds, or those undiagnosed due to the TSH. They easily represent millions of individuals, and who are not being reached by the media.
What will the publicist be doing? She is representing STTM and contacting a variety of blog posts, women’s magazines, radio programs, internet websites and even TV…to set up live or recorded interviews, get websites to put up articles I have written, do a book review, etc. You can see what she has done already, below. And ironically, even the publicist assigned to STTM has been one of those millions being treated with Synthroid and dealing with several problems as a result of an inferior treatment. She is impressed with STTM.
Is it expensive using a publicist?? Very! For just 18 hours a month of work by the publicist, the cost is $1500…a month. I dug deep in my pockets to pay for the first three months. And for this to continue, I need help!!
Is my donation private? Completely. No one will know but you and me.
Does Janie get any of it? No. Not a penny. It all goes to the publicist.
If you believe in the patient-to-patient message of STTM, and have a passion to help get the word out to millions, either undiagnosed or underdosed, click on DONATE below–you can either use your PayPal account, or just a credit card without a PayPal account.
Please pay forward what STTM has given you. 🙂 Once I get enough to pay for a full month, I will rehire the publicist.
