As some of you may remember, I was featured in the August issue of Woman's Day Magazine for the work I do with Ordinary Hero and helping children in need. It was such an honor and amazing experience!
Well.....EXCITING NEWS!! They are looking for another "Ordinary Hero", so to speak, who is doing amazing things by helping children in need, for their upcoming May, Mother's Day issue!!
They have asked Ordinary Hero to help them find YOU!
Here is what they are looking for from the email I received from Brian, their Senior Editor.....
I’m working on a story for our May issue (our Mother’s Day issue). We’re looking to profile extraordinary moms in the NY, NJ, CT area who are doing fabulous things with adoption, fostering, etc. Basically, someone just like you, who we haven’t featured yet. Ideally, a mother who’s fostered a lot of children (and would be willing to be photographed with them), a mother who has started an adoption/fostering/children’s charity (like you) - that kind of thing.
So notice he said they want to feature someone from the NY, NJ, CT area. They are keeping this one close to their home base of New York.
So here is what I want you to do....
SEND ME YOUR STORY OR THAT OF SOMEONE YOU KNOW WHO FITS THIS.
(Be sure to include their contact info if it is not you)
SEND THEM TO Kelly@OrdinaryHero.org
I will allow submissions from other states just because you never know when they might be looking for someone to feature for a later issue but there are no guarantees. We, at Ordinary Hero, will start featuring some of your stories that don't get picked by Woman's Day on our blog as our "Ordinary Hero Spotlight". We love that there are so many of you Ordinary Heroes out there who do so many amazing things! People need to know about you!
ONE OF YOU FROM NY, NJ, CT WILL GET PICKED FOR THE MAY ISSUE OF WOMAN'S DAY! WOO HOO!!!!
So send me your stories and FIRST INCLUDE WHERE YOU ARE FROM. If you are from one of the above states mentioned for the issue, make sure we see it loud and clear!!!
As I get the submissions I will forward them on to Brian.
Here is the thing......
YOU ONLY HAVE THROUGH WEDNESDAY, Jan 18! THAT IS 5 DAYS TO GET THEM TO US!
They need these submissions ASAP so the sooner the better!!
So.....1, 2, 3 Go!!!
Start getting us those stories and you could have the awesome experience with the wonderful folks at Woman's Day, like I did.
You will get your own photo shoot, and go from this.....
BEST OF LUCK!!
