Invite Your Local Epilepsy Organization to the Epilepsy Directory

Dear all,

I am assisting Jessica, my dear epilepsy activist friend, in spreading the message and awareness about epilepsy and the fantastic blog she has founded. Jessica has worked very hard to establish her blog " Living Well With Epilepsy " for the goodness of everyone. Her blog trumpets out loud about her goals to promote epilepsy awareness to great heights. For her great efforts, we should not just applaud her but also join forces with her to further strengten her existing strong and united network of epilepsy webs, blogs and organisations.

Below is Jessica's appeal to everyone.

November is Epilepsy Awareness Month and it will be here before we know it. Since you have added your site to the Living Well With Epilepsy Directory I'm reaching out for your help. I would be thrilled if you would reach out to your local epilepsy awareness organization to encourage them to add their link to the directory. Below I have included sample email text that you can use to reach out to your local affiliate.

" Dear Epilepsy Organization:

November is Epilepsy Awareness Month and it will be here before we know it. I know we are all trying to get the word out about epilepsy and maximize resources. So, I wish to let you know about an online directory that has been effective in driving traffic to my own epilepsy awareness site.
Jessica Keenan Smith, the founder of Living Well With Epilepsy, hosts a directory of epilepsy websites, blogs and organizations. I encourage you to add the URL to your website, blog, vlog, or even a podcast. Just use the simple linky tool provided on the site and add. Your organization will be instantly added to the directory. You will find an increase in traffic to your site and also gain additional outreach.

I have provided the URL for your convenience :
If you also know of a site that should be listed but do not own the site, feel free to forward the directory address. The organization can add their URL when they have a moment.
Thanks for your help in spreading the word about epilepsy. "
Thanks for YOUR help in spreading the word. The more organizations we can add to the directory the better! One last thing, if you have a moment please vote for Living Well With Epilepsy as a Parents Magazine's Best Blogs.
