To ensure appropriate, unbiased use of the 2-1-1 Email Blast system, the following criteria are observed:

1.)  
Central Michigan 2-1-1 will send information from a nonprofit agency/program pertinent to the health and human service field such as new programs/services, program/service updates, trainings/in services, resource fairs, job postings, non-monetary program donation announcements/requests, etc. 

2.) Central Michigan 2-1-1 will send a weekly digest of fundraiser events hosted by or benefiting a local nonprofit agency or program.  Requests for fundraiser digest blasts must be received by end of business Wednesday and will be posted the following Monday (or next business day in case of a holiday).

3.) Central Michigan 2-1-1 will not send blasts of a political nature or containing a political message.

4.) Central Michigan 2-1-1 email blasts are not intended to provide a vehicle for requesting resources for individual persons, families or situations.

5.) All email blasts must be posted by a representative of the non-profit agency/program hosting the event.

6.) The same event/blast will only be sent a maximum of two (2) times.

7.) If an agency/program submits material to be blasted & later submits changes to the original submission after a blast has already been sent, 2-1-1 will resend the blast. This second blast (to correct errors made by blast requesting agency/program) WILL count towards the 2 allowable blasts per event/blast.

8.) All email blast requests submitted online or to emailblast211@lifewayscmh.org will be posted within three (3) business days. 

GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR EMAIL BLAST REQUESTS

1.) Blast information should be sent either as identified text in the body of an email or as an attachment.  Fundraiser requests must be submitted as an attached document.

2.) Preferred files are .rtf or.jpeg.  Publisher and PDF documents require additional formatting and your Blast may appear differently than planned.

3.) Blast information must include the name of the posting agency in the body or title of the request.

4.) If the requesting agency serves more than one county, the subject or body of the request must indicate which counties should be included in the Blast.
