Letter Writing Campaigns

Writing a letter to the editor of major newspapers and media can help enlighten and inform readers. Your letter can be easily submitted to hundreds of newspapers. Just write a 250 word letter with a link to ERA at www.byteland.org/era and send your letter via email to hundreds of newspapers. You can generate your own email list of newspapers/editors using the service at the Media Awareness Project. Use the MAP email search directory and do a two letter search for your state as FL, TX, CA, NY or IL. This will generate an email list that you can cut/paste and save as a text file. Then you can use this email list in your address book of groups to send your letter to the editor. Other good searches are for names of newspapers such as SUN, POST, TRIBUNE, DAILY, CHRONICLE, HERALD, ADVERTISER, ADVOCATE, JOURNAL, GUARDIAN, VOICE or NEWS. Be sure to include your real name, home address and phone number as many newspapers will want to varify that you are the author and give you notice that they will print your letter. The MAP site also has very good information that can help you to write better editorial letters. Remember to include a link to the ERA site at www.byteland.org/era so that people will be able to visit this link, research the topic and become better educated. Over time this will have a great effect as each letter on this issue that is published will reach tens of thousands of people. In this way over time more people may become active and help promote the health, education and welfare as it related to elderly and prevent exploitation of the elderly and their dependents. Note: when using MAP to generate email list you may need to edit the resulting list to add a comma between each entry before droping it into the "send" or "groups" section of your email server or address book. Also some ISP like AOL may only permit sending 25 emails per letter, and may flag your account if you try sending too many emails at once. This is done to avoid spam and/or for other security reasons. You should contact your ISP to be sure there is no limit placed upon the number of emails you can send or to check to see if there are limits. Also some newspapers will only publish letters that are sent exclusively to them, in which case you may wish to vary your letter and submit it as an exclusive to only a single newspaper.
