You know how in my profile it says i do outreach and education for a women's empowerment agency? Most of the time that means doing actual education, like with a powerpoint slide show. i'm all businessy and official like that. But the other main aspect of my job is to attend health fairs and community events, to really break the silence and embarrassment that surrounds this topic, and also to promote awareness of the agency. I can not tell you how many times random people come up to my table and say "I wish i knew about you guys 20 years ago" or "You guys have really helped me, and now i'm going to take materials to talk to my teenager." It's super important to me that people know who and where we are in case they need our services or know someone who does.
When i get my materials ready for an event, i know i need to draw people over to my table in some way. Now that my office has finally bought me an official fancypants cloth tablecloth, i need to make sure the handouts are just as attention getting. This is why i jumped at the chance to talk about AstroBrights papers.
Astrobrights paper come in 23 bright colors, which would surely draw the eye and stand out from the crowd. No muted pastels here. Of course there are many ways someone would be able to use this paper, whether it's for work, (like me) a craft project, (bunting anyone?) an announcement, (yard sale this way!) a school project, etc.
There's a sweepstakes going on where your local elementary school could win a $30,000 cash prize and school supplies, called Give a Brighter Year. To enter, visit AstroBrights papers and you'll see the tab at the top.
If crafting is more your gig, enter the "Make Something AstroBright" contest. Take a picture of your project or craft using these bold papers, submit it on the AstroBrights papers facebook page, and be entered to win all sorts of prizes. You can also enter via pinterest or twitter, just be sure to use #goastrobrights. Hmm, i wonder if my health fair tables would count as a project!
