blog action day 2008 is tomorrow


If you haven’t already registered, please do so by clicking here.

It would be well worth your time to post your ideas on the topic of poverty (this year’s theme), no matter the normal focus or theme or your blog.

Poverty is not a Republican or Democrat or Green Party issue. It’s a universal, non-denominational and indiscriminate catastrophe that we all need to address in whatever way we can.

It could easily be anyone of us at any time.

Thanks very much.

free PSA supporting red cross donation for disaster relief efforts


We’re right about in the middle of hurricane season in the U.S. and it looks like it’s going to be another hard season.

If you know of any broadcast, cable or internet outlets that can use this PSA (public service announcement), please forward this post or this PSA to them.

LISTEN – Public Service Announcement

Click here to download the Red Cross Hurricane PSA!

As always, we’re not looking for compensation or publicity, just an outlet to broadcast the request for donations all to benefit the American Red Cross. There are no usage restrictions on this audio as long as it is used in its entirety.

If you want to record the PSA yourself for your station, here’s the script.

The physical damage is severe but the emotional toll is catastrophic. The 2008 hurricane season in the United States is upon us and as always, the American Red Cross stands ready to help.

The Red Cross is sheltering thousands along the Gulf Coast while preparing to shelter more along the Atlantic coast as storms approach.

They are mobilizing Red Cross people, our fleet of emergency response vehicles and mobile kitchens.

The Red Cross is also delivering meals and clean up supplies across the Gulf Coast and staging food and supplies along the Atlantic coast.

Please support the American Red Cross as they once again support Americans in their time of need.

Donate now by visiting Red Cross dot org or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. To donate $5 right now, text the word “give” to the number 24357, or spelled out as the number 2, HELP.

Support the American Red Cross as they help Hurricane Disaster Victims again this year.

And if you could throw the American Red Cross a couple of bucks in the effort, that would be good too.

Please note in the comment section of media to whom you have sent this to or (if you’re the media) what outlet you are from.

Thanks for being a good person.

blog action day, october 15, 2008


You’ll remember my request for your participation and this blog’s participation in Blog Action Day 2007.

Over 20,000 people participated and it moved the message of the environment forward within the social media sphere and within mainstream media as well. Thanks for helping!

On October 15, 2008, we’ll talk about poverty and more than 20,000 people (I think) will again move the message to the fore.

If you blog, you need to participate by clicking here.

If you just read (and that’s cool too) tell your friends about it.

If you’re willing to promote it on your web site, grab some graphics here.

Here’s why:

myanmar is still a disaster

The tragedy in Myanmar (Burma) from the cyclones continues with this report being secretly produced and now broadcast globally by CNN. Like life itself sometimes, it’s tough to watch so be warned.

And you can still donate to UNICEF here to help families in Myanmar (Burma). Anything you can spare would go a long way for them.

revised free public service announcement for myanmar relief efforts

May 28, 2008UNICEF is making inroads with the Myanmar (Burma) government to provide aid for millions still affected by the cyclone that destroyed parts of that country.

With updated statistics and a list of pressing problems for relief workers trying to aid children in the region, audio’connell Voice Over Talent has updated its :30 second public service announcement (PSA) for universal use. The PSA requests donations for UNICEF’s relief effort in Myanmar.

Our original posts regarding UNICEF fund raising efforts in Myanmar can be found here.

Please make known this PSA update to any broadcast, cable or internet contact you have. They may use the PSA as produced or use the script to produce their own PSA.

The story may not be leading the news broadcasts today but the terrible conditions for the children in the country are no less severe.

Thank you for any help you can offer.
