World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters
Our goal has been to work with local schools and teachers worldwide to expand Tai Chi & Qigong usage into society at all levels. WHY? Its simple. These ancient mind/body tools make people calmer, clearer, and better at everything they do.
We have interested hundreds of thousands of people in Tai Chi and Qigong, and then thru our informational website, www.worldtaichiday.org's free directory, have connected thousands new to Tai Chi & Qigong to local groups, teachers and schools. The annual global event is a booster rocket each year that reaches tens of millions of people with media coverage, enabling local groups to use the library of Medical Research on Tai Chi & Qigong we've created to help you educate your local media and public. We had some breakthrus this week in helping you to help your group, school, and community.

Official World Tai Chi & Qigong Day 2007 T-Shirts Are Here!
Sorry, if you saw this already. However, we all get so much email, we didn't want any groups to miss out on the early pre-order savings by ordering their groups T-Shirts before Feb. 11, 2007.
We can get a cheaper printing rate when we bulk order. So we'll collect orders coming in now until Feb. 11th, and then fill them in order, then. Your credit card will NOT be charged, until your order is actually shipped.
The T-Shirts provide a global image for media to use, and we get to share the concept of "One World . . . One Breath" and the health benefits of Tai Chi & Qigong with the world via the media.
ONE THING WORTH MENTIONING: Last year, my wife and I were invited to speak at the Los Angeles World Tai Chi & Qigong Day event. We brought a few WTCQD Official T-Shirts to the event to place on their sales table, and our T-Shirts SOLD OUT IMMEDIATELY!!
The beautiful "One World . . . One Breath" motto of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, is elegantly cast in the "Da Vinci Vitruvian Man - Yin Yang" logo.
The symbols of Eastern and Western wisdom beautifully entertwined, as the subtle yin yang emerges, a symbol of how Eastern wisdom is now permeating Western culture, and providing wonderful benefits to millions worldwide in all cultures.
Thank you to all for participating in WTCQD each year, and also to those who support our ongoing efforts by using our lovely original art T-Shirts as local fundraisers each year. We couldn't do what we do without you.

CONTACT YOUR LOCAL / NATIONAL MEDIA !!
World Tai Chi & Qigong Day has gathered Associated Press (AP) and United Press International (UPI) contacts.
You can locate one in your area by visiting:
[Remove any blank spaces in above URL when pasting it in your internet browser window.]
We are about to purchase a new updated listing of international media, and will be sending out early heads-ups to media worldwide.
As always, you'll need to contact your local media and national media as well with your specific local event info, and your contact information.
WTCQD's national press releases are generic and will lead them to our global Directory of WTCQD events.
If your group is working hard to create a WTCQD event, you'll always want to contact them yourself as well with your specific contact info.
By employing a one-two-punch of us here at WTCQD International contacting your national media, and you contacting local and national media in your country, they will see Press Releases coming from different angles.
Please begin sending out early heads up Press Releases to media now, and then follow up as WTCQD 2007 gets closer. You might follow faxing your press releases, with a phone call to find out who your best contact is for your event. Then in the weeks leading up to WTCQD 2007, call the local and national media.
National Media will often pick up feeds from local press or TV, so working both angles can help you and your group get national media.
Don't give up if you don't get the media you expect. Media relationships are like growing a garden, or learning Tai Chi. Nurture the process and it will grow over time.
HOW TO CONTACT MEDIA:
Print out your WTCQD press release (offered in 18 languages) at:
[Remove any blank spaces in above URL when pasting it into your internet browser.]
Place your local group/school/event's info in the space provided.
