After more than six years ...
We're taking a break
PHILADELPHIA (September 18, 2006) -- After six years of hosting meetings throughout the city, Awake In Philly is taking a hiatus for the year.
Although Awake In Philly will be taking a break in the real world, we will continue adding content to our site, as well as replying to questions and concerns via email We are not shutting down operations, only taking a break from running monthly meetings.
Helping other organizations
This "down time" will also give us some time to complete the final aspects of several projects we're working on with Awake In America, as well.
So, while this time is primarily intended to give us a breather and allow us to recharge, coming back with new ideas and approaches, we will also be busy working on a lot of other projects in the background, many of which will benefit individuals with sleep disorders, as well as concerns about quality sleep.
Control III solution and Home Care Kits
For those individuals who regularly purchase Control III solution and Home Care Kits to disinfect and clean equipment and masks through the Awake In Philly site, feel free to continue to do so, as our email and the orders are checked daily.
To be certain you receive announcements about all future meetings, as well as several special events planned throughout the region over the next several months, sign up for our eMailing Lists.
Upcoming local events
Until we resume meetings, all event announcements will be sent via email and sent only to those individuals who have a completed profile in our system.
The emails, without exception, will be sent based on proximity to Zip codes where the planned events will be held. When you sign up, be sure you complete the profile, or at the very least, be certain to have your City, State, and Zip code in the profile. Entries without that information will be stored in our system for use when meetings and normal activities resume, but will not be used until that time.
Because of a large surge in the amount of SPAM received on a daily basis, enhanced SPAM filtering has been implemented on the Awake In Philly mailserver. Contacting us via the link below is the best method for contacting us.
