Dear list member,
My name is Jeffrey Fox and I'm a writer for CONSUMER REPORTS magazine in
New York. (You may have read my May, 1997, article "Is your kid caught up
in the Web?" for which members of this list provided help).
Now I'm working on an article for CR on marketing to children. I'm
particularly interested in your experiences *and* your views on all the
types of commercial activities now taking place in public schools. The more
detailed the description, the better. Colorful war stories and anecdotes
are greatly appreciated. It also helps if the activity hasn't been widely
covered in the media.
The school year is nearly over, so the sooner I hear from you the better.
Please e-mail me at email@example.com. I may need to speak directly with you.
If you're interested in that, please include your phone number. FYI: My
work number is 914-378-2505. I work at home often, so...my home number is
I really appreciate your dedication to your students and your willingness
to help CONSUMER REPORTS inform the American public.
Sincerely, Jeff Fox, Senior Editor, Consumer Reports
