Monthly Marketing Update
- February 2017

Thank you to all who attended the Release Party last week for Greater Portland/Vancouver! We were excited to have a such a great turnout.  If you were not able to join us - you were missed. You can also view photos online and we hope you will join us next year.

New editions of the guide have already been delivered to libraries, hospitals, area agencies on aging, to every physician office, and to every sponsor.  Thank you to so many that have helped us grow over the past 8 years and supported creating a comprehensive resource guide for our community. It is because of you using the guide with your patients and clients that we are able to bring value to every family looking for care and services. Please let us know if you need additional guides. 

IMPORTANT - Many people did not realize that we welcome you to add your label to the cover with "Complements of…" and to share the guide with others. We will give you as many copies as you will use. You do not have to be a sponsor to share the guide. We want all families to have access to resources and services as soon as a need arises.

Nuggets of Knowledge


"If you hold an anti-war rally, I shall not attend. But if you hold a Pro-Peace rally invite me." ~ Mother Teresa

In the current political climate, I felt I should pivot slightly on my monthly “Nugget.” So, here goes… If you would like to march or speak out - please do so in support of something - in support of a better America, in support of LGBT rights, in support of women's rights, in support of healthcare rights, in support of minority rights, but please do NOT march against something. Be pro peace, pro diversity, pro equality, but be FOR something positive and not just AGAINST what you do not like.

~ Amy Schmidt
