Advertising for WNC Non-Profit Programs

IN-KIND SPONSORSHIP PACKAGE for non-profit program festivals & fundraisers

Because we believe that viable non-profit programs are essential to a healthy community,  SheVille.org has in-kind media sponsorship packages available.

SPACE FOR IN-KIND ADVERTISING IS LIMITED PER MONTH, so please send in your request as early as you can. Your press release will run for up to two months before the event.

WHAT MAKES SPONSORSHIP PACKAGES DIFFERENT  We will run a Top Banner (600 X 132) for your organization that announces your fundraiser. Banners roam throughout the magazine and give tremendous visibility.  Banners are especially effective as they offer a great visual for people looking for opportunities for volunteering or donating to our community. 

Your ad will also be featured in a full-page article with pic and links in the Special Events section of the magazine and on the  Front Page and our Facebook page, Twitter feed, Instagram and News. We refresh the placement of your information frequently during its stay. 

Send us your Banner 600 pixels wide x 132 pixels high at high resolution in .gif or .jpg format. If you’d like us to design your Top Banner send us the .jpgs you want to use. (In some cases we might need to charge a design fee of $50.00 depending on the complexity of what you want, but we will let you know should that be the case.)

There are no hidden fees associated with this offer as long as you provide us with your press release and the jpgs you want us to use.

This advertising package is valued at $500.00 to $750.00.  

WHAT WE ASK IN RETURN is that you send out the ad link you will receive to YOUR BOARD, FRIENDS AND FAMILIES, as well as including the name/logo SheVille.org as a media sponsor on your website and in sponsorship information for the event. 

Please also refer any local/regional businesses to SheVille who might be looking for good, affordable marketing for their business!  Call Rain (828) 338-0217 or  Jean (828) 215-2915 or Email: info@sheville.org


I Will Teach You: by Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim

by Tae Yun Kim, syndicated from Parabola in The Daily Good

At age seven, Tae Yun Kim gazed upon her uncles practicing an ancient martial art. She was awestruck. Never before had she seen something so beautiful and exciting, their movements both natural and mystical. She decided right then and there she had to learn. There was only one problem: She was a girl in 1950s South Korea, and this was a five-thousand-year-old culture and tradition. When Kim asked to train with them, she was told, “You’re supposed to learn how to cook and sew. And if you’re lucky, someone will find you a husband. . . . ” Continue reading

The surprising way gun violence is dividing America

May 31

On average, there are 276 gun homicides a week in America. There are 439 gun suicides. All told, there are, on average, nearly 1,200 incidents involving gun violence, every week, in America.

This landscape of gun violence — suicides, homicides, mass shootings, accidents — is not evenly distributed. Instead, it plays out over geographic and political dividing lines — and these may help explain why individual Americans see the issue so differently. Continue reading


OUR BODIES OUR BLOG – Call for Women Who Experience Pain with Sex

A Call for Women Who Experience Pain with Sex and for Health Care Providers Who Treat Them

By Guest Writer Marta Milkowska

My name is Marta Milkowska and I am a graduate student at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. I am working on a project aimed to better understand the problem of pain during sex – something experienced by many women. This summer, with support from Our Bodies Ourselves and the Harvard Kennedy School’s Women in Public Policy Program, I am seeking interviews with individuals who fall into one of the following three categories:

  • Women ages 16 to 35 who experience pain during sex
  • Women who have successfully reduced or eliminated pain during sex
  • Physical therapists and medical clinicians (such as ob/gyns, family practice physicians, and internists) with experience diagnosing and treating pain during sex

HART Haywood Arts Regional Theatre

 Welcome to one of the treasures of Western North Carolina. The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre, founded in 1985, is a volunteer-based community theatre showcasing the talents of the people of the region. HART, under the leadership of Executive Director Steven Lloyd, has grown into one of the most active theatres in the Southeast, producing a year-round schedule of plays and musicals from its home, The Performing Arts Center at the Shelton House. Opened in 1997, and funded by the support of people throughout the community, HART’s home is a stunning facility constructed in the style of the traditional Summer Stock playhouses of the 1920’s. Architect Joe Sam Queen and builder Pat Burgin used native materials to create a facility that is both grand and informal.   Click here for seasonal shows Haywood Arts Regional Theater


How to Talk to Little Girls

I went to a dinner party at a friend’s home last weekend, and met her five-year-old daughter for the first time. Little Maya was all curly brown hair, doe-like dark eyes, and adorable in her shiny pink nightgown. I wanted to squeal, “Maya, you’re so cute! Look at you! Turn around and model that pretty ruffled gown, you gorgeous thing!”


Campaign for Southern Equality Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Ruling in Masterpiece Cake v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission

Asheville, N.C. (June 4, 2018) – Today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Masterpiece Cake v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission represents a narrow response to the facts of this Colorado case and departs from longstanding precedent by granting a single Colorado business the right to discriminate. The Court did not rule that there is a right to discriminate: this ruling does not apply to businesses in other states and does not invalidate non-discrimination laws that protect LGBTQ people.
