Using Letters to Reach Out to Market Segments

That May Have AT to Donate

 

A business letter explaining how the assistive technology (AT) reuse program serves the community is an inexpensive form of outreach to some specialized market segments. This may be particularly effective for professionals or corporate executives who are in a position to donate, or encourage the donation of, used AT.

 

The attached examples are from Sarah Johnnes of the Idaho AT Reutilization Project. They reach out to estate planners who may be dealing with AT users or their families, retail store managers who use AT in the store, and medical service providers who may know users of AT.
