NEED Magazine gathering momentum

Thursday, November 29, 2007

Within the last few weeks Volume 1 presenter NEED magazine has begun to gain some much deserved attention. For a newly formed humanitarian aid focused magazine, it doesn't get much bigger than having Global Humanitarian and former President Bill Clinton hug your latest issue.

Need magazine was on hand to speak about their endeavor at the Slate 60 Conference held in October at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas. The Slate 60 Conference is an event in which 60 of the most generous philanthropists convened to discuss and inspire change through Philanthropy," and listen to presentations from people such as Justin Rockefeller, Michael J. Fox, and New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. Click here to learn more about the conference and to see audio and video from the October event.

In addition to their recognition at the conference, NBC News Producer Patrice Fletcher wrote a piece on NEED for the MSNBC website. It does a great job of telling the inspiring story of this great local organization so if NEED is new to you, check out the article
