*** One Paragraph Pitch:

From Darcy Silvers, APR, ABC

Philadelphia suburbs

I’m a Philly-area senior copywriter whose career began as an editor at The Orlando Sentinel. I still get an adrenaline rush from deadline pressure. I “defected” to the advertising world, working for Orlando's Robinson, Yesawich & Pepperdine (the largest tourism/resort agency in the U.S.) and for suburban Philly's Thomas J. Paul marketing services, where I wrote copy for Nabisco, M&M/Mars, Warner Lambert, Johnson & Johnson and more. My passion is PR, and I am accredited via the Public Relations Society of America and the International Association of Business Communicators.

In the past decade my focus has been on ecommerce – SEO copy, blogs, email campaigns, banner ads and online PR product placement. While other writers focus on a niche, I pride myself on the diversity of my portfolio, which you can see at http://www.thehiredhandink.com.

Ned,

Our new team lead for collecting school supply donations is Captain Angel Casiano (address below). As our Brit friends are beginning to rotate out a group of U.S. service members are taking the lead on the school outreach program. They conducted a supply drop with many of the supplies we still had on hold from the folks who receive your JOTW e-mail so as of now it's all been delivered.

I can't begin to thank you enough for all of the support and we are very grateful to the folks who took some time to mail supplies (and creamer) our way. We're good on creamer but we're still taking donations for the schools; notebooks, crayons, coloring books, pens and pencils. I've attached a letter from the chairperson and the link to some photos from our most recent visit is below.
