AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 11, 2004--
Convio-Powered e-Card Campaign Helps Organization Increase Visibility During Veteran's Day

Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA), the leading advocate for veterans' healthcare, medical research, benefits and civil rights, is offering free e-Cards this week -- not only to honor those who have served our country as the nation celebrates Veterans Day on November 11, but also to help build a stronger constituent base and generate more support for the organization.

As part of its online strategy, PVA is encouraging people to send free, Convio-powered e-Cards to express appreciation to veterans and active duty service members. At the same time, the campaign helps PVA attract new constituents and learn more about their interests. This serves as the basis for personalizing communications which, in turn, makes the organization and its mission more relevant to constituents, deepens engagement and fosters giving as well as other forms of participation.
