Clipping for a Cause

Clipping for a Cause

A group of women from First United Methodist Church of Lawrenceville has donated more than $12,000 worth of household products to local charities in one year and spent very little money out of pocket.

Their ministry, called Clipping for a Cause, was founded a year ago by expert couponer and church member Heather Bonner. "I felt called by God to start a ministry that uses coupons to buy inexpensive thing to donate to local charities," she said.

Church members donate their unwanted coupons every Sunday. On Wednesday, Bonner and her volunteers get together and start clipping. They focus on  items they can get for free or under 50 cents. "We buy milk, pasta, personal hygiene items, razors, formula for babies, anything you can think of," she said.

They shop at a local Publix store and often call the store days before their trip to make sure anything they buy in large quantities is in stock.

Being Newsworthy

For an announcement to be considered newsworthy it must have a broad, general interest to the target audience and a strong news angle (e.g. material information, new development,drama, human interest, local angle, consequence, etc.). In addition, your release needs to be written in a journalistic, rather than marketing style. It should be objectively written as though a reporter were writing the story for you. Most importantly, your release needs to "inform" people, NOT just sell them something.

Headline Formats

In most cases your headline is the first thing an editor sees when reviewing your release. An effective headline can make the difference between an editor covering your story or hitting the delete button. To create an effective headline consider the following points:

    * Limit your headline to no more than one line.
