Photo Gallery: American Standard Brands Participates in World Water Day

Posted on March 23, 2010 by Nora DePalma

American Standard Brands took  a stand for global safe drinking water and basic sanitation for all, by standing up 12 high-efficiency toilets outside the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, March 23, 2010 as part of a Guinness World Record attempt to create the World’s Longest Toilet Queue.

Alexandra Cousteau, granddaughter of the famous ocean explorer, and singer/actress Mandy Moore got in the queue, posing with our toilets in images that were featured on the USA Today website and Perez Hilton among other coverage of World Water Day identified by Google.

The event is part of two days of activities to support World Water Day (March 22), with toilet queues being set up in Europe and Asia, as well as North America, to draw attention to WASH, an acronym for water, sanitation and hygiene. Lack of access to fresh clean water, the world’s largest environmental health crisis, kills 4,500 children every day.

Photo Gallery of Peter Shankman Addressing PRSA GA Meeting

Posted on June 18, 2009 by Nora DePalma

Great GA PRSA meeting today with the Help A Reporter Out (HARO) founder Peter Shankman as our guest speaker.

Noting that social media is based on rules “you’ve already heard from your mother,” Shankman had this advice:

1. Transparency. Be Honest.

2. Relevancy. Find out what and how your prospects and customers want to hear from you.

3. Brevity.  The average attention span is 2.7 seconds, or roughly the length of one 140-character Tweet.

4.  “You can’t make something viral.  You can only make something good.”

If you’re in PR and you don’t know HARO, you should.  It matches thousands of journalists looking for sources with all of us who subscribe.
