Not sure if this idea was mentioned, but what about having copies of the magazine in libraries? When I was in this week I took a look and didn't see any. I asked the librarian and she checked the computer - it's not in the entire Toronto system.

She said they purchase magazines for the libraries. But, maybe a year subscription would let people see it's available.

AM, Good counsel. We're working on this as we speak. Also with school libraries.

School libraries is an excellent idea.

Not sure if this is at all feasible, but schools (especially elementary) usually have contact with the parents of kids with allergies. Maybe a copy could be given to school principals, asking that they rotate it through any families in the school they are aware are dealing with allergies.

Not to poop on your idea, but I have seen how things manage to "stay at home" with our own support group library (for months at a time) so I suspect that it wouldn't get rotated very much. It would be a good idea to give them an order form, though. I'm sure this is in the works too - eh Gwen? :)

I noticed the pull out inserts in some issues. I wuold like to give one to my doctors office, family etc., but they say things like "hope you enjoyed your free copy" and other things that imply that the person who has the insert has already gotten and read a magazine. Could you include an insert that would be appropriate advertising for a current subscriber to give to their doctors office, library or friends and family?

Karen, no offence taken. The idea of throwing out a lot of ideas is so that the good ones can float to the top. If something doesn't work, it's best to know before putting a lot of time and effort into it. :)

Saskmommyof2, great minds clearly think alike (!) because on our to-do list is to get stand-alone promotional cards made up for the magazine.

Anyone who thinks they might have use for a bunch of 20 or so should private-message me with a name and address, and I'll send some along when we get them. Probably a few weeks from now. And yes, we'll contact a number of the major allergists' offices to see if they'd put them out.

Thanks for all the great ideas. Much appreciated. /Gwen
