I'm not sure what template to choose. I am leaning towards long newsletter. A rough draft of my email (text only):
Milestones Presents You!
Milestones Magazine showcases programs, products, and services that help support and empower people with challenges.
Milestones Magazine Presents You: We organize virtual events featuring, for example, technology that assists people with divergent abilities. One of our September events, Off to College, introduced Cindy Fisher, creator of the SmartSource App that helps college students with divergent abilities navigate the college environment.
Milestones Magazine Informs You: We publish, on a quarterly basis, a free virtual magazine with articles representing diverse segments of the “disability community”. Magazine contributors to the current issue include
- A Forest Preserve District that offers accommodations for people with disabilities
- A “special needs” photographer
- A “special needs” travel agency
Milestones Magazine Rewards You: We are launching a Rewards Program. Similar to those used by grocery stores and other retail outlets, ours offers enrolled businesses and organization with discounts and credits for themselves and their clients/customers/family/friends. The core of this program are our member-provided resource lists, available on a national, state by state basis of:
- Special Needs Lawyers
- Special Needs Financial Planners
- Special Education Advocates
- Applied Behavior Analysts
- Speech Therapists
- Occupational Therapists
- Physical Therapists
- Recreational Therapists
- Art Therapists
- Music Therapists
