First ever print media publicity
For the first time ever in Australia there has been a story (1.4MB pdf file) in a major paper on HSP. Eligible bachelor, engineer and Foundation Fundraising Co-ordinator, Tim Xiros was featured in the article in the August 10th edition of Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph.
That led to a huge increase in interest in both the disease and the Foundation. People who saw the story in the paper then googled us, went to the website and emailed us with everything ranging from their own stories to offers to participate in the stem cell research.
Another important positive outcome is that new HSPers who didn’t know we existed have now found us and been welcomed into the community.
With the stem cell research starting, there’s more great publicity coming soon ….. stay tuned!
