Action Item - A Call to all Blogs and their readers - for TerriTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
BlogsForTerri, on behalf of all 150+ blogs of Terri's blog group will place an ad in the Sunday edition of the St Petersburg Times (largest paid circulation in Florida - 450,000+). The ad will be an open letter to the residents of Florida from BlogsForTerri and their readers calling them to action and will provide additional significant opportunities that benefit bloggers.
The contents of the ad have been derived from the work of our bloggers in pursuing the following points:
Terri is not unconscious, brain-dead or in a PVS (videos at site).
Terri has been treated with negligence and denied her own legal counsel.
A proper evaluation of awareness in the presence of profound and complex neurological disabilities such as Terri's requires the skills of a multidisciplinary team experienced in long term management and tests. Terri has never had this opportunity.
Additional details can be found here.
To go forward we need funding, $10,000 to be exact (every cent will go into the advertisement). And, we desperately need the participation of every Blog for Terri to raise it quickly - time is of the essence.
Currently we are taking pledges through this page (http://www.blogsforterri.com/pledge.php). You can participate by doing the following:
Call your readers to get involved by supporting the advertisement. Direct them to the pledge url.
Call and email friends, family, organizations and business with a personal invitation asking them to fund the ad.
Contact organizations and businesses or send us the contact information for organizations and business interested in sponsoring the advertisement through a substantial contribution (they will get their name listed in the ad).
Thank you for joining the fight for Terri. Working together we can rally the nation to end the danger to Terri's life. Note: as you publish this information on your blog please trackback this post - no link is necessary.
