*** Help Payless ShoeSource give away $1.2m in shoes this holiday

It's that time of year again. Over the past two years my company, Collective Brands and its business unit, Payless ShoeSource, have distributed $2.2M in coupons (77,000 pairs a year) for new shoes to children of families in need. The program is open again this year, with a streamlined application process and vastly improved website and Facebook presence.

With the help of my Linked-In network each year we have attracted qualified applications from nearly 3,000 charities in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Latin America. The application period is from now until November 5th officially (a few additional days unofficially); selected charities will be announced later in November and the coupons will be valid for the months of December through February, 2010/2011.

Please forward this email to any charities you think could apply. All the details for the program can be found at www.paylessgives.com and on the payless gives Facebook page.

Last holiday season a lot of deserving kids got their first pair of new shoes ever through this program. With your help we can reach even more this year.

Thanks, so much.

*** Jim Parsons says WTF?

Regarding the alternative selections, what the f is FF's problem?

They're one of the many “extras” that make JOTW interesting to read (or, in my case scan). They evidence creativity and awareness–attributes that I thought all “savvy communicators” are supposed to have.

If one doesn't care for 'em, I suggest that one just not bother reading 'em.

JP

(What does the JOTW network think? Do the alternative selections hurt the JOTW brand? Cast your vote at the poll on the right margin of www.nedsjotw.com.)

*** Get rid of the alternatives? Unthinkable:

Ned,

No alternative selections? Heresy. Next, you'll be thinking of cutting out the piracy reports. Let's hope clearer heads prevail and JOTW doesn't lose either of these features.

Your friend,

Kathy

*** Alternative selections:

I cannot believe the narrow view some people exhibit when ever anything gets out of the narrow channel in which they live. Get a life people, the world is actually round, there are other opinions besides yours and they also are valid. Get excited about something that actually makes a difference.

Ken Jensen

*** Here’s an alternative: lighten up.

Ned,

I was going to send this comment online, but I can't remember my password. Hell, it's Friday, I'm having trouble with my name. But the comment about alternative jobs not being consistent with your brand – is this for real? I'd say they fit the JOTW brand perfectly – good professional information with a surprise thrown in. Who else does that?

Someone needs to review Lighten Up 101. Have a good weekend, wherever you are.

24.) Part-time intern, Praecere Public Relations, Washington, DC

Praecere Public Relations, a boutique firm in Washington, DC, seeks a part-time intern starting January 2011, for at least four months. Reasons to apply:

• Money – you will get paid. And, as our portfolio is growing quickly, if we win new business you’ll be eligible for bonuses.

• You will do real PR work – not just stuffing envelopes, making copies, and giving people keys to the bathroom. Work will include strategic planning, making media lists, pitching reporters, writing content, and more. We will teach you the ropes from the ground up, so you’ll get valuable, real-world PR experience.

• If you do your job well, are disciplined, cool, and fun to work with – and the firm scores bigger contracts – you will be considered for a full-time gig once you’re free of academic or other obligations. That is a solid promise.

• Preference is given to candidates with background in travel and tourism (we mean professionally, not your lifestyle).

Praecere takes time, thought, and care in every step and decision we make, and your application should reflect that philosophy. Tell us about your studies, prior work, understanding of the PR industry, and anything else you think is relevant and interesting about you. It helps if your application shows ambition, captures that creative je ne sais quoi, and ignores PR jargon and buzzwords.

Send a cover letter and resume (please, no writing samples/references just yet) to info@praecere.com.
