NARSAD Chosen by USA Today as a Charity "Closest to Nation's Heart"
Read more... Schizophrenia Advocacy
The following is a special note from Constance Lieber, President of NARSAD (NARSAD is the leading nonprofit foundation which focuses on funding schizophrenia research):
USA Today, the most widely circulated newspaper in the United States, has selected NARSAD as one of 25 charities "closest to the nation's heart." This important recognition, which begins today, April 13th and continues through September, coincides with USA Today's 25th anniversary celebration.
In USA Today's weekend edition, dated April 13th, the paper’s signature front-page "Snapshot" captures NARSAD’s fight against mental illness. Over two days during the week of April 13 -19, ads about NARSAD will appear in the newspaper’s pages. (I’ve attached one.) Both the "Snapshot" and the ads will direct readers to a special NARSAD-USA Today webpage (www.narsad.usatoday.com), which goes “live” today and will remain on view through September, where the public will be encouraged to contribute to a “blog” about NARSAD and the importance of mental health research and to make donations.
We ask for your help
This opportunity with USA Today can be particularly fruitful for NARSAD thanks to a generous pledge of $1 million by the principals of Alpine Mutual Funds. Every dollar contributed by the public in connection with the USA Today campaign will be matched dollar for dollar. So, please add your testimonials to those of Mike Wallace and Representative Patrick Kennedy on the NARSAD “blog” as soon as possible.
I also encourage you to share this email with friends, family and colleagues, who may themselves be interested in helping NARSAD make the most of this excellent opportunity.
