“Thank you again for all of the PR work you did for 3,000 Act of Kindness. I recognize that you went above and beyond in getting the word out through multiple stages and I have to imagine some of what you did was pro-bono. Thank you. Our event would not have been as successful as it was without everything you did to help drive interest, donations, volunteers, and media coverage. At a couple different volunteer events, I recall asking individuals how they heard of the volunteer opportunity and there were multiple answers/sources, many of which were directly correlated to the media you secured. In addition, please know that the work you did ultimately helped our community and for that, we will forever be thankful. If you ever need a reference for similar work, I'd be more than happy to be a reference on your behalf.”

"RMA Publicity has been handling the publicity and marketing for my children's book, Boo Boo Bear's Mission The True Story of a Teddy Bear's Adventures in Iraq, since it was published in June of 2009. Rachel's skilled pitching has led to scores of media placements locally, regionally, and nationally. On many occasions she has used her knowledge and skills to parlay one placement in a geographic area into several. This has resulted in greater exposure for my book as well as made it possible to take full advantage of a single trip."
