Publicity Ideas
Invisible Illness Week

Don't miss this annual outreach event sponsored by Rest Ministries the second week in September (2008 is Sept 8-14th). Besides all the seminars during the week (over the phone this year!) it's a terrific

time to remind your church that nearly 1 in 2 people live with a chronic illness and 96% of illnesses are invsible! Have a special speaker, kick off a HopeKeepers event, have something special for caregivers. We'd love to hear what you have planned!
Hope Endures Podcasts The Sunroom
