The email consisted of just one sentence, eleven words long: “dave, this is such a good story, I am sharing it.”
As it happens she was referring to the story we ran Tuesday about a five-year-old girl who successfully went through in utero surgery to correct two major, life-threatening defects. It WAS a great story, which drew a lot of response.
But she brings up an enormously important point, which I hope our readers will take to heart: the critical importance of sharing. If we are going to greatly increase the number of people who automatically receive NRL News Today that will be because you make it happen.
You can help in one way, or several ways, but all of them take virtually no time on your part. Here are some examples:
Forward one of your favorite stories to all your pro-life friends.
Many of you have social networks that ran from dozens of people to hundreds. Post your favorite stories through Facebook along with a personal comment on the story. Share stories you like with you Twitter followers. If you have a Pinterest account, by all means pin the stories that interest you. You might be surprised to see who else feels the same!
Send people a short note that goes along with the forwarded story saying that you enjoy National Right to Life News Today and hope they will sign up. They can do either by clicking on “Receive NRL News Today in Your E-Mail, “ which is found in the upper right hand corner, or by going separately to http://www.nrlc.org/join_our_mailing_list.htm.
Most of you are far more creative than I am. In addition to sharing NRL News Today with your pro-life friends, please pass along additional ideas how to “share the wealth.”
You won’t believe what an impact you could have.
