Hi again. I wanted to be sure you got the email I tried sending before, so here it is again (see below). I hope it’s useful, and stay safe!


Hi,


As you’re well aware, citizens in communities all across the country (and really, the world) have faced a lot of uncertainty in the last few months due to COVID-19. It’s been critical for community-based sites like yours to share information regarding coronavirus, but I don’t want anyone to forget about the importance of natural disaster safety. On that note, I’m passing along information that will help protect the people in your community during emergency weather:

Is it possible for you to add this list (in full or in part – whatever makes the most sense based on your area) to a resources page so your site’s viewers have easy access to it?


Stay safe!


Warmly,

Ginger

By the way, I’d also love to write a free, research-based article you could share on your site on living a greener life. Please let me know if you’re interested. If you’d prefer not to be contacted again, please send me an email, and this will be the last time you hear from me. Thanks!
