Some Helpful Hints Courtesy of Mary Pringle

If approaching your local library or the like, ask them if you can have a part or a whole bulletin board to decorate on Prader-Willi syndrome for the month. If they are already spoken for reserve it for PWS Awareness Week (first week in May). If you are planning on a Walk in your area for awareness, then you would want the board the month before with sign up information.

Many ideas can be had from stopping in your local education store (where your teachers shop). They have great ideas which can be combined with information from the PWSA (USA) Web site and PHOTOS, PHOTOS, PHOTOS of your kids.

E-mail your local editor of the newspaper and send them a message and attach the Web site. Make them think they are special and give them something personal and "catching" to call you or someone willing to talk to the media. Be sure to include a contact number.
