|EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS - INTEREST GROWS AS WORLD TAI CHI & QIGONG DAY GROWS WITHIN 10 DAYS.
Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters,
EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS !! MEDIA INTEREST GROWS !!
This week we had four Tai Chi & Qigong related interviews here at the international organizing center, and are recieving reports from World Tai Chi & Qigong Day groups worldwide who are gaining increasing media attention.
Ode Magazine's website announces WTCQD 2009, and of course you already know that the National Institutes of Health site is doing so as well.
We just got a great radio interview which focuses on World Tai Chi & Qigong Day,
You can listen to it on line,
and share it widely !
The interview explains what WTCQD is about, and how it evolved, which you, your friends, group members, students may enjoy and help get them excited about the coming global events. You'll see a graphic link to listen to the interview at www.worldtaichiday.org
If you have a friend or loved one who is wondering "why in the heck you're going out on Sat. the 25th to do Tai Chi or Qigong in public" the above interview will help them see the depth and breadth of what you are involved in. It talks about the event itself but also a broader vision of what Tai Chi & Qigong can do for our world, healthwise, economically, etc.
You can contact your regional Associated Press office by using the AP contact list at the bottom of our Media Page (to publicize your local event):
Use our "Medical Research Library" at WorldTaiChiDay.org to pass on this information to your local, regional and national media. For example a recent media article quoted a health expert at a major medical university who claimed Tai Chi is very good for helping teenagers deal with anxiety.
WE STILL HAVE OFFICIAL T-SHIRTS, AND YOU CAN STILL GET THEM IN TIME FOR WTCQD (domestic US only at this point in time).
Why is that, you may ask, because we already made a last call?
Here's why we can still get t-shirts to you. Me and my wife bit the bullet and over ordered in the last print order, because I just did not have the heart to hear the dissapointment in anyone's voice when I told them we were out of t-shirts, and they couldn't get them in time for WTCQD 2009.
So, we have extra t-shirts, and I am committed to getting all t-shirt orders out on Friday, even if I have to work all night on Thursday night, so that all groups will get their t-shirts by next Wed. (Apr. 22) or Thurs. (Apr. 23) at the latest, in plenty of time for WTCQD 2009. So, if you order anytime tomorrow, Thurs. (Apr. 16), so long as sizes last, I commit to getting them to you in time for WTCQD, even if I'm up all night doing it, I'm happy to do it, to make sure you have them in time.
You can order at:
All I ask, is that everyone take photos of your beautiful events (see below).
So, if you or anyone in your group still wants an official t-shirt, please order now, so me and my wife aren't sitting on a bunch after WTCQD, and also if people ask you on WTCQD about your t-shirts, please refer them to www.worldtaichiday.org.
World Tai Chi & Qigong Day
Saturday, April 25, 2009, 10 am local time . . . worldwide!
WE'RE DOING MASS MEDIA RELEASES !
Your Local Event Can Benefit
WorldTaiChiDay.org just purchased a mass media press release to be released through news services worldwide.
This may find its way to a national media assignment desk in your country. If you are doing your local press releases, and these national desks see the international release we did from the organizing center here, and then see your local media cover it . . .
. . . national or international media may pick up the local story or local video feed of your event covered locally.
So, if you or your group hasn't used the Media Kits in the "Be a Part of a Global Healing Event" page at www.worldtaichiday.org now is the time to do so. You'll see the Media Kits link in the menu on the right side of the page.
When we get national or international media, we try to get them to alert their listeners, readers, viewers to visit www.worldtaichiday.org to find local classes and teachers, where on every single page right at the top of the menu on the right is the "Find Local Classes" directory, because our goal is to connect them with local teachers in their communities.
We believe Tai Chi & Qigong teachers worldwide are a rich treasure for their community, and we work to get communities to recognize these local treasures, and more fully utilize what these teachers have to offer.
Be SURE to Photo Your Events!
We'll have an Event Photo Gallery Where Groups worldwide will be able to post your photos
Use digital cameras so you can load them online.
Each school or group will be able to post your 10 best photos. So if your city is holding an event that involves 5 schools/groups, for example, each school will be able to post their best 10, so you can have a total of 50 photos for your event.
Also, consider getting some short video shots of your event, and putting them on YouTube.com, as we'll have a way for you to embed the code of your youtube video posting on the World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Event Photo Gallery.
See past event photos from over 50 nations:

Very exciting to see so many new nations and cities coming into the global family of Tai Chi & Qigong events.
Looking forward to seeing the photos.
