Looking for People and Answers
From the day my brother, Joe Dunsavage, disappeared in Honduras until today, hardly a day passes that someone doesn't say, "Have you tried getting help from Oprah?"
We've tried loads of celebrities, and the problem is that they all are surrounded by layers of gatekeepers. The closest I managed to get to anyone was Jimmy Buffett's manager's assistant. I want to try a different tack now by tapping the social media ecosystem.
I want to plan a series of Missing Americans Project fundraisers, starting with one on the second anniversary of Joe's disappearance (May 10). I need some big names to donate their time and talent -- names that will really draw. Everyone knows someone. Someone out there went to school with Bruce Springsteen or does Susan Sarandon's mother's hair or tends bar at a place where old rockers hang out when they don't want to be recognized. Let's tap this whole 6-degrees-of-separation thing and see whose back fence we can get to. If nothing else, we'll spread the word of the project beyond its current perimeter.
All contacts can be sent to me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks in advance, gang, and let's have a happier new year.
