The video is GREAT! Everyone who has seen it loves it. You touched on all the critical points perfectly and your footage does such a perfect job of showing what is being said. This video will be invaluable in raising the money for the next annual medical symposium where we will bring doctors from Panama, Puerto Rico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Honduras together to look at the medical model we are building in the county of Iriona. Your help in making this a reality is wonderful and truly right on target. Thank you for the great success of your project. We love it.

I have personally shown the video at our large staff meeting and at the Council meeting and received positive feedback. Everybody likes it... I was able to send four copies home with visitors from the US Corp of Engineers who are looking into the possible permits that the proposed coal mines will need. Being able to give them this video will enable them to more fully understand how the coal mine will affect the indigenous peoples of the area. Thank you for all your hard work.

Karen did an excellent job in planning, organizing, coordinating, and executing the video production for Hawaii Island Recovery. Her thoroughness and attention to detail was evident throughout the day as well as in the final product of the video itself. Her consideration, supportive communications, and encouragement to our staff during the video shooting was much appreciated and contributed also to the excellence of the final product. A big "Mahalo Nui Loa" from all of us at Hawaii Island Recovery.

We received the DVD today and reviewed the corporate video. We share the same feeling with your colleagues, the video is really informative and touching, especially for the US people when they see the true images. Thanks a lot to get the job done really well.

The end result was everything we hoped for and more! We will put this mini documentary to very good use ... I am very touched by your and your camera crew's personal involvement in this project. It is clear this was not "just a job" for you all and it shows in the wonderful product you produced for Friends of the Orphans. I look forward to our continued collaborations in whatever form they may take!

Friends of the Orphans
I wanted to share my appreciation and thanks to you for the recent production of the piece on Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam. The Israeli Palestinian conflict is a complex problem to tackle and voices for peace are nuanced, sensitive, steeped in political overtones and quite difficult to capture. You did a brilliant job of capturing the essence of this unique Jewish-Palestinian community in Israel. Thank you for the time, care and nurturing you put into developing this piece. We were very fortunate to have a producer as thorough and in-touch with our needs as you.
Deanna Armbruster, Executive Director
American Friends of Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam
It was a pleasure to work with you and your film crew for the shoot of our NMR video. Your professionalism and expertise made the process a positive experience for our executives and staff. The final video exceeded our expectations and has been well received by our partners, investors and customers. We certainly expect to call upon your services with our future marketing need.
Bradley Perkins, Senior Vice President, Administration and General Counsel

We all viewed the DVD of the commercial and company video you produced for us and want you know how pleased we are with the result. You're a true professional and did a great job. It was such a pleasure working with you, we really enjoyed the whole production process. I hope we get a chance to work together again soon.

We received the video and it looks great!! Wow! You and your team did a wonderful job! We held the screening of the piece this past Monday. All the residents loved it!
Suzie Schulberg, Director of Marketing & Outreach
I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate your talent, input and all the ground work you cover for us. You do a superlative job. You’re a PR genius! The board of directors loved the new image, branding and deliverables you created. One board member wrote: “I’m sure you’ll agree that this season our press coverage was excellent. Not only was ICA USA in the paper, but the reader could actually understand what we are trying to accomplish!” Yes, thanks to you.

I have known Karen Lustgarten for 30 years, from the time she was an on-air personality on the country’s first magazine show and nominated for an Emmy, to when she launched her own business and newspaper Cause Celebre, to when she became my writer and editor for every press release and speech I have made.
When I struggle with writing and using my own words, I know I can send it off to Karen to make it shine, and that is exactly what she does. She is resourceful, an excellent writer, knows where and when to use humor and has a very effective outreach. I use her for anything that has to do with delivering a message.
Linda Maslow, CEO
The Maslow Media Group, Inc.
Karen Lustgarten is a talented and respected media-PR professional. In no time, she raised public awareness of our Planned Parenthood affiliate's programs and services and sustained positive press coverage for more than four years. Because of her professional demeanor, experience, creativity and persuasive writing style, 99% of her releases, pitches, columns and op-ed pieces consistently appeared in important local press--print and broadcast. Whatever focus she suggested for a story was usually the right one.
Karen was a pleasure to work with and an invaluable asset to the organization because she did it all. Besides writing everything, she created the podcasts, Web content, got speakers and moderated town hall meetings, devised and conducted surveys, developed events and outreach programs, took professional photos and recommended board members. I could always trust her judgment and advice as media-PR consultant.
Mary Capobianco, former CEO/President
Planned Parenthood, South Palm Beach & Broward Counties, Inc.
Thank you for everything. You have been an angel and it is such a pleasure to know you. I truly appreciate all that you do. [Re: Haiti T-shirt drive]
