Make sure the cancer survivors in your community know about National Cancer Survivors Day®. Start publicizing your NCSD 2021 celebration this week.
- Reach Out to Local Media Encourage local media outlets, including TV stations, radio programs, newspapers, talk shows, and magazines, to cover your Survivors Day celebration. Send them a media kit with all the necessary information about your Celebration of Life, as well as a “sales pitch” explaining why they should publicize or cover National Cancer Survivors Day® in your community. We have several sample letters and templates to get you started.
- Generate Social Media Buzz If your organization doesn’t already have a social media presence, create one on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Post announcements, photos, press releases, reminders, and other information about your Celebration of Life to build excitement. Use these social media graphics and don’t forget to use #NCSD2022 on all of your posts!
- Get the Community Involved Cover your town with flyers and posters. Request to be included in community event calendars. Reach out to local bloggers, your city or county government, your chamber of commerce, local tourism offices, religious groups, local businesses and organizations, treatment centers, and hospitals, asking them to help get the word out about your local NCSD celebration.
