Obtaining Sponsorship for Media/Appearances

Spent the entire day on the phone with radio stations asking for free Public Service Announcement spots for foster family recruitment, as well as making calls to potential large donors to help fund all the things I need to get done this year.  Got with Mission WV again to get the team in place to get these PSAs written and produced.  Spent a good bit of the day working on Miss America platform paperwork and working on my blog!  Good productive day!  Am feeling a little less overwhelmed.

July 9th I obtained a LARGE monetary grant from Massey Energy to help me promote media and personal appearances, focused on foster parent recruitment and adoption from foster care.
