Dear Thomas,

This is Natasha Dantzig for the TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Conference.

I'm writing to ask for your for your help in breaking a major global news story on Friday, October 3rd.

This is an important story that has been documented over the last two years by renowned photojournalist James Nachtwey. In 2007, Nachtwey won the TED Prize, an initiative of the TED Conference, which grants three extraordinary individuals one wish to change the world. Winners are given one hundred thousand dollars in seed money, and individuals within the TED community and the world at large participate in making the wish come true.

Nachtwey wished for help in breaking a news story in a way that demonstrates the power of news photography in the digital age. On October 3, Nachtwey's work will be simultaneously revealed online, disseminated through numerous media channels, and projected on monuments and public buildings throughout the world.

How to get involved:
The following link contains embeddable badges, Nachtwey's TEDTalk, and other information related to Nachtwey's wish.
The site will redirect on October 3 to unveil the story.

We're reaching out to individual bloggers around the world with the hope that you'll help us get the word out by posting these items on your site in advance of October 3, and blogging about Nachtwey's upcoming reveal.

Thanks in advance for your consideration, and please don't hesitate to get in touch with me directly with any questions.

Natasha Dantzig
