Testimonial

——————————-

Dear Mr. Goldwyn:

“On behalf of Design for Sharing, I thank you for making possible our feature story in the recent edition of the Los Angeles Times.  It’s difficult for smaller non-profits to get press coverage, but because of you, Design for Sharing was featured with an entire half page story with color photos…..

“Providing the services of Harvey Farr and the Farr Marketing Group was invaluable to us.  In our 35 year history, it’s the first time the LA Times has covered our organization. Mr. Farr was instrumental in obtaining the coverage and generously sharing his knowledge with us….

“Your additional support of a publicist was invaluable.  Countless readers learned about the good work Design for Sharing has been providing for 35 years.”  — Barbara Dobkin, President, Board of Directors

The latest and most high profile is Minnesota Senator Al Franken who has been accused of groping and inappropriate actions and remarks against a host of women.  Yesterday the former comic and Senator faced the media — briefly — to say what he’s been saying since the allegations, and photograph, came to light.
