Thanks again to everyone who entered our November contest for a free, premium PRWeb press release. I asked you: What’s the #1 reason you’re thankful for PR? And I got some awesome responses. Here are the top 3, all winners of the contest:
Diana Scimone wrote a heartstring-plucking response: “When I take a photo of cages in Mumbai holding 5-year-old girls about to be trafficked—PR lets me tell the world about this horror.
When I can’t sleep knowing that a million kids a year are being sold into sex slavery—PR lets me make sure the world can’t sleep, either.
When I decide I absolutely have to do something about this and I start a charity to reach kids before the traffickers do—PR lets me announce it to the world.
Five years later when we’ve developed an anti-trafficking awareness program and a child in a village where we’re teaching it is beheaded—PR lets me share my outrage with the world.
And when other kids around the world will never be trafficked because we really have reached them before the traffickers did—PR lets me shout it to the world.
PR is not just to tell the pretty stories. Sometimes we have to tell the ugly stories, too. PR lets us do that—and that’s the #1 reason I’m thankful for PR.”
Eric Anthony Johnson wrote an entire blog post, pictures and video included to tell us why he’s thankful for PR from an entrepreneurial standpoint. Kudos for this super creative effort.
And Joe Bock: “PR is the medium by which we effectively communicate our ideas, dreams, and goals. Through it we share, collaborate, learn, and grow. And that’s what it’s all about, right? For each of its benefits, I am thankful.”
To all of the winners, thanks for taking the time to enter. You can redeem your free press release by emailing me at sacevero(at)vocus(dot)com.
The contests aren’t over — we still have one more opportunity left for 2011! Stay tuned to hear the announcement for our December free press release contest.
