Celiac Awareness Letter Writing Campaign

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The folks over at USASillyYaks noticed that on Oprah's site that they are looking for people with odd disorders, so many people have been posting their letters under that topic at the Oprah site. Just thought I would give you all a heads up on that.

How is the letter writing going for everyone??

Hey. I just got finished e-mailing about 20 companies (most of them that were on here already). But I also added about 2 --one news station & one newspaper -- from my area to the list. I e-mail the generic e-mail, but with a msg at the top, explaining how long I've had it, and that it's imporant to me, and to get the msg out...etc...so that it'd be a bit more personal. Well, I hope it works! Good luck everyone! :D

I emailed about 50 news stations and shows so far.

I also put in for the Oprah show and gave my story with a brief letter.

I plan to snail mail some companies and am finishing up the letters now...also contacting local stations.

Hey there! I am a newbie but wanted to kick in some support. I sent a bunch of emails out to the places that Katie listed. Hopefully someone will hear something! I live near Milwaukee. There was a big article in the paper in past years about celiacs. They were referencing the Gluten Free Trading Company here in Milwaukee. It will be exciting to see if this campaign gets responses! I'll watch for updates!

I rec'd an email from the TODAY Show.  They are going to air a segment

on Celiac May 10 with cooking demos.

Not for sure on this, trying to still do some checking, but I believe it is an Australian today show that is having the segment.

:D

1.How did you manage to write all those letters in two days!

2.Please can we copy your letter in the U.K. but with adaptations (to cater for the fact that some people get certain foods on doctor's prescription at a flat rate - not me though - and that our national coeliac society publishes a food and drink directory with monthly amendments).

3.Our coeliac awareness week is around 20th of May but we ought to be thinking of 2006. I can't write any letters in time this year!

Fabulous work, hoping lots of benefit comes!

:D

You are welcome to use my letter.

Copy and paste the letter and send it as an email is the fastest way for me personally.

Good luck with your letter writing campaign in the UK!!! Let us know how that goes.
