I don’t know if they take people from outside of Chicago but I suppose you could always ask. I run their ads because I know they’re legitimate so don’t judge the (not-for-profit agency) by their website. I run across a lot of bogus offers so be wary. If you know of other similar releases I should be running, let me know. Also note they’re asking for just 5 pieces so it’s not just me.
