Launched on Facebook November 1st, PR Helping PR is designed to help PR folks find temporary office space, and for those that have temporary office space to offer it to the community. If you have space to offer – a few desks, a conference room, a couch, etc. for someone to work, please let us know how many people you can host and what amenities you have. If you need space for yourself or colleagues, please post a message and we’ll try to get you a response quickly.
Finally, please share the link to PR Helping PR with your industry colleagues to get the word out to the community. Once again the link is http://www.facebook.com/PRHelpingPR.
