THE MOST RECENT AD -- funded by donations to The Wisdom
Fund -- will appear in the Nov/Dec 2005 issue of Teacher Magazine. As a
result of just two ads, more than 700 schools requested information on Islam.
PURPOSE: To encourage readers to want to learn more about Islam.
OBJECTIVE: Place "The Truth About Islam" in Teacher
Magazine in order to stimulate interest in Islam in the nation's 80,000 public
schools, 21,000 private and parochial schools, and 25,000 leaders in the teaching
STRATEGY: Advertising in Teacher Magazine is an effective way to reach
the young population of the U.S. which is more likely to have an open mind. This
is a continuation, albeit a more focused continuation, of what we have been
doing since February 1995. Our unique message "The
Truth About Islam" -- said to be the "best, short introduction to Islam" --
has been displayed in Washington Metrorail stations, and has been published in
Foreign Affairs, The Brown Journal of World Affairs, Washington Report On
Middle East Affairs, The Washington Times, Islamic Horizons, The AMC Report,
Eastern Times, etc. Thousands of copies have been distributed on campuses
and by community organizations.
ABOUT US: The mission of The Wisdom Fund is to
advance social justice and interfaith understanding by presenting "The Truth
About Islam." Founded in 1995, The Wisdom Fund is an Internet based, 510(c)(3),
nonprofit corporation run by volunteers. It receives visitors from 90 countries.
Enver Masud is its founder and CEO at a salary of
$1 per year.
FUNDS NEEDED: $20,000 per year to place "The Truth About Islam" in Teacher
Magazine. A minimum 5 year campaign is needed -- an ongoing campaign would
be more effective. Contributions of $2500 or more may be acknowledged in the
advertisement if requested by the donor.
SEND CHECKS TO: The Wisdom Fund, Attn: TMagAd, PO Box 2723, Arlington, VA 22202
or DONATE VIA THE AMAZON.COM HONOR SYSTEM.
Please Note--For a more effective campaign, we need an additional
$24,000 per year to advertise monthly in Education Week--published by the
same organization that publishes Teacher Magazine. Education Week,
serves as American Education's Newspaper of Record, reaches 220,000 readers each
week, and is considered the The Wall Street Journal of Education.
If donations are not sufficient to place "The Truth About Islam" in Teacher
Magazine, the funds donated will be used to place this message in other
