Tuesdays with … July 7, 2014
Here’s your Tuesdays with…. update for those in need of a kidney transplant and their advocates. It is a short one this week. You could use the following information and email to family members, friends and post on your Facebook page and other social media outlets. You could also include additional information about your health, progress and other activities. If this is your first Tuesdays with… update, click here to learn how to use Tuesdays with… to expand on your Kidney Kampaign.
I’ve been getting a good response from friends and family members about my Kidney Kampaign and I’m looking for new ways to get the word out. Here are a few ideas I have where you could help.
I’ve ordered (or you could write that you are ordering) some business cards that have my contact info on one side and my story on the other side. When I meet someone I know and tell them about my situation I’m giving them (or I will give them,) one of the cards. The card also has the contact info of the donor coordinator at my hospital so anyone can call to find out more information about being a donor. You could also hand the cards out to the people you meet and tell about my situation.
Another way I’m using the cards is to attach them to the bottom of a flyer that tells my story. I’ve been putting these flyers (or I will be,) on public bulletin boards. Starbucks and other local coffee shops, grocery stores, places of worship etc. Wherever there’s a bulletin board.
I could email you this flyer that I developed (you could mail them too,) and you could place them where you live. Just let me know and I’ll mail you some of the business cards.
Please let me know if you have other ideas on how I could use the flyer and business card.
I would appreciate any help you could provide.
Go to the Living Kidney Donors Network website home page to find information about printing business cards and flyers. To see some examples of each click here.
Can you suggest another way to let others know about your need? Please share it with us by clicking here and we will include it in a future Tuesdays With... update.
If you know someone else in need of a kidney transplant or would like to pass this on to your doctor or a dialysis/transplant social worker please provide him or her with this link:
Until next week, we wish you the best in your journey.
