Dear Social Change Maker,

You have been working hard to make the world a better place, and we've noticed. This Valentine's Day, we want to show our love -- and our gratitude -- for your work by offering your organization a chance to gain the attention it deserves.

Through Free Range's 2008 Gratitude Grant program, we are offering up to $15,000 worth of design and/or strategic communications services from our menu of core offerings: strategy consulting, identity design, web design, print design, and online movies.

So what do you want to "ink" this year? A new campaign strategy? A website? A fresh logo? A never-seen-before Internet tool? As long as you have a concrete goal to make a positive difference for our planet and its people, we encourage you to apply.

Visit our website to learn more about this opportunity and download an application.

Questions? Contact McArthur at 202.234.5613 or mcarthur@freerangestudios.com.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love,

Free Range Studios

P.S. Feel free to forward this message to friends and colleagues.

The organizing committees of the Paris and Rome Veggie Pride
demonstrations share with you their hope that 2008 will see important
changes in the situation of animals. We hope that this year will be
rich in solidarity with all animals and that we will come in still
greater numbers to demonstrate for their rights and for those of
vegetarians next May 17th.

We are very happy to announce that in 2008 the Veggie Pride will be
international; in effect, thanks to the initiative of Italian
activists will be held this year the first Veggie Pride outside of
France. Thus two demonstrations will take place at the same moment,
at Paris and at Rome, on Saturday May 17th.

We hope that the Italian Veggie Pride will be a great success and
will encourage vegetarians from other countries to organize their own
Veggie Pride demonstrations.

Note that a report on the Paris 2007 Veggie Pride and a video can be
found at the following address:
http://www.veggiepride.org/fr/cr2007.php.

The French team expresses its hope that the 2008 Veggie Pride will be
a powerful moment for the expression of the voices demanding the
abolition of meat and that this demonstration will contribute to the
development of a global movement for the abolition of meat (see
http://abolitionblog.blogspot.com).

Mark your calendar: You need to be in Minneapolis on June 6-8, 2008, for the next National Conference for Media Reform.

Activists, media makers, educators, journalists, policymakers and concerned citizens will converge once again to call for real and lasting changes to the media. Find out why so many call this event the most inspiring and informative conference they've ever attended.

Registration will open in a few months. For now, mark your calendar and join our conference mailing list.

Join the NCMR 2008 Mailing List

2008 provides us with an unprecedented opportunity to put media reform in the national spotlight. Join us in Minneapolis and help build this critical movement.

Last year's conference in Memphis was a remarkable event. More than 3,000 people connected, strategized and drew inspiration from rousing speeches, provocative panel discussions and hands-on workshops focused on all aspects of the media.

Check out highlights from Memphis

NCMR 2008 is for anyone who is concerned about the state of our media and committed to working for change. Come to connect, learn, share and build the growing movement.

See you in Minneapolis,

Josh Silver

P.S. Don't take our word for it. Here's what other participants had to say about the National Conference for Media Reform:

"The entire Conference was an A++++++++++; it was the best conference I have ever attended in my very long life. Kudos!!!" -- Joya J., Scottsdale, Ariz.

"Finding out that I am not alone nor one of a few outsiders but a member of a large and growing community of progressive activists means I look to the future with less dread and more hope." -- Charles M., Searcy, Ark.

"The value for me was being lifted from a socio-political valley of lonely shadows to a sunlit plateau populated by smart, energetic people who have done and are doing things to take back our democracy." -- Kelly P., Astoria, N.Y.
