For those of you reading this in the NYC Tri-State Area, PrincipleProfit author and ethical marketing guru, Shel Horowitz, pushed this my way so I’m pushing it your way!
I am always thinking of you, my readers–so when I saw this in this morning’s Help a Reporter, I stopped what I am doing to tell you about it. I know nothing about this other than what is below, but it certainly seemed worth passing on. If I lived in the Tri-State area and had kids the right age, I’d enter myself.
HARO is a no-charge service that sends reporter queries three times a weekday.
You can subscribe at www.helpareporter.com.
I suggest you respond with two or three bullets and a sentence or two about your qualifications – let them follow up later)–the faster the better.
Please respond to the reporter *using the address in the body of the request* (I wouldn’t mind being copied but if you only send to me, I won’t forward it) with HARO as the first word of the subject line.
Remember–I didn’t write this and can’t answer any questions about it. All I know is what’s below.

Deadline: 7:00 PM EST – 8 December
How green is YOUR family? A NYC based media company is casting three families in the tri-state area to enter an eco-friendly challenge! We are looking for outgoing families who are comfortable on camera. Shoot dates will be mid-to-late January for two days in your home.
Here’s the deal! Each family will name one of their children (age 6-10) as team lead, and under the guidance of a green expert, each family will be asked to create solutions to (1) save water, (2) save energy, and (3) reduce waste at home, in their neighborhoods and in their schools. Each family will be compensated; however points will be awarded for each activity and the winning family will appear on Better TV and receive a $25,000 savings bond for their child’s college education.
Does your family have what it takes to win this challenge? Write a brief description explaining why, grab your favorite family photo, and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org
