PR Newswire waived distribution fees for all news releases from organizations offering aid to victims and those assisting in rescue and relief efforts related to the Colorado fires.
Scott Mozarsky, chief commercial officer, PR Newswire states: “With the reports of more than 300 homes destroyed by the Waldo Canyon fire and more than 30,000 people evacuating Colorado Springs alone, there’s a great deal of information that needs to be communicated to the residents of Colorado Springs, its surrounding areas, and the broader country.
We want to make sure that the organizations that can offer assistance have a quick and easy way of getting their messages out.”
To distribute a release concerning the Colorado fires, PR Newswire members can upload it via the Online Member Center (https://portal.prnewswire.com/Login.aspx) or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Non-members can email releases to email@example.com. Emails should include “Colorado Fires” in special instructions or the subject line of the release.
