Happy New Year! We are super excited to invite you to join us for an exciting event! We are trying to get Stitch Red on The Today Show. There are two opportunities we’d love for you to be part of if you’re interested below – let us know if you’d like to join!
We are trying to get as many knitters/crocheters as possible to wear as much red as possible and meet up at Rockefeller Plaza for the Friday, January 18th taping of The Today Show in order to show them how much pride we have in the Stitch Red campaign and what we’re doing to STICK IT TO HEART DISEASE!!! We want to PAINT THE PLAZA RED, literally! J If you are going to be in NYC for VK Live or are already in the NYC area, we would LOVE for you to join us in spreading the word in front of the massive audience reached every morning by the show! We know it’s early (there’s a coffee shop right in the Plaza to get caffeinated), but can you imagine how amazing it would be to have an army of knitters/crocheters supporting heart health picked up on camera!?!
-Meet in lobby of New York Marriott Marquis (1535 Broadway) at 6am for a 6:15am walk to Rockefeller Plaza
-Meet AT Rockefeller Plaza at 6:30am (45 Rockefeller Plaza)
*NOTE: It’s important we get there as early as possible to hold our spot and get a front row spot for getting on camera and getting the anchors to come over for an interview. The more people that get there early, the more we can spread out and PAINT THE PLAZA RED!!
Anyone who’d like to join! The more the merrier.
Wear as much knitted red gear as possible.
-We will be making some signs that say Stitch Red; StichRed.com; Stitch Red for Heart Health, etc. to share. If you’d like to make any of your own signs that promote the campaign, please do!
-Email me NO LATER THAN NOON THIS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9TH if you’d like to make a knitted/crocheted item for an anchor.
I would love to get an idea of how many people will be joining us, so if you will definitely come or think you’ll come please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know ASAP!
Thank you so much! We look forward to seeing you in NYC.
Best,The Stitch Red Team
