    Dear Laurie,
    I have come across your article “Busting Cold and Flu Myths” in Alive magazine. I am the co-Founder of a website called The Grandparents Guide and I would like to know if we could reprint this article in our You section with a direct link back to you and this site. I noticed many articles in your archives that look like they might be quite relevant to our readers. Do you partner in this way with other sites? Check out our site and let me know what you think.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Happy New Years.
