It has been an honor and a privilege to meet so many wonderful people over the years, criss-crossing the nation and talking about energy conservation. Today, I write with news and a call for help: Throughout the month of October (and beyond), Kilowatt Ours will appear on numerous public TV stations nationwide, including the markets listed in this email. Would you please help us attract larger viewership? If so, here is how you can help:
- Send this post to your contacts, friends, listserves, etc.
- Watch it on TV (invite some friends over). If it is not airing in your community, contact your local PBS station viewer services department and ask if they plan to schedule a broadcast.
- Make a small donation to Kilowatt Ours to support our continued efforts to make this national release a smash hit! (visit www.KilowattOurs.org and click on “donate”).

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer! And do not hesitate to send me a message. I would love to hear from you.
All the best,
