It’s a pretty exciting time for the Foundation because we are going through a transformation. In light of the genuine need to recruit more volunteers to the Guardian ad Litem program, we took the direction of introducing a media campaign to the First Circuit community. We are approaching the need from all directions including: television, newspapers and radio ads.
The quest for recognition and exposure is paying off! We were recently featured in a segment of the Bobby Likis Car Clinic national radio show. He interviewed us for a 16 minute segment that aired across the country. What a great supporter! We also were featured in a Pensacola News Journal article this past week that generated a lot of interest in the program. And last, but not least, we are airing short commercials, produced by BlabTV and playing during most of their programming, including Blue Wahoo games. The commercials are beautifully produced by BlabTV and we were honored to have the participation of many from the community…you may even recognize some of them!
The message is the most important thing and we will be featuring these ads on the blog, with a little background on the participants.
The first commercial we wanted to highlight is from Aaron Watson. Aaron is a long time Pensacola resident and attorney. While he was more than willing to make the commercial, he was also determined to be a good advocate for the Guardian ad Litem program by becoming a Guardian ad Litem volunteer. We couldn’t be happier or prouder of Mr. Watson as he joins our ranks as a child advocate. Here is his message:
