Steering committee volunteers send the media release to as many Wichita-area press (radio, TV, magazines, newspapers, communication consultants) as we can think of. But if you have a personal connection or a specific contact at any local media outlet, please don’t hesitate to send it to them — it’s that personal connection that could make the difference! We have a very small budget for publicity/marketing, as the majority of the funds raised on market day go to the projects themselves — to the people in our community and around the world who are in need. In other words, we don’t pay for very much advertising; so please help us try to get as much free publicity as possible — let’s make sure everyone in Wichita knows that they are invited to the market!

If you prefer more traditional handbills (rather than the new business-card option this year), please print the single-sided color PDF above on 8.5 x 11 inch “letter” sized paper (glossy would be nice, but not necessary), then cut to make four per page. Distribute as you like–in person with a friendly verbal invitation is always best!




Click on the PDF link to download front and back sides of this 4×6 inch postcard invitation. Adjust and print as necessary onto card stock. Be sure to affix US Postal Service first-class rate postcard postage before mailing to your friends!


For our co-sponsors who are hosting tables/booths representing AGI projects, the PDF document below is a one-sheet overview of what you need to do and can expect prior to and on market day. You should have received this information when you first signed up at “Project Picking Night” (or otherwise through a volunteer steering committee member), but here it is again, just in case!



To request specific materials or additional information contact Julie Brin, volunteer steering committee member, at 316-841-4391 or by emailing
