Boys and Girls Club "Running of the Ducks" Campaigns

The opportunity to work with non-profits throughout the community is important for a number of reasons:
1 - Non-profits are so busy helping people that they don't usually have the time to help themselves.
2 - The staff at non-profits are skilled at social work and problem solving but they are not marketers or designers.
3 - Often times, they don't understand branding and how to develop an emotional connection with their audience.
4 - Most selfishly, giving to them is good for our souls. We really enjoy helping and watching the results of our work.
Get out there.
Pick up a hammer.
Be a mentor.
Be a part of the solution in your community.
If you aren't sure where to start, call your local United Way office. They will do a great job of matching your interest with an organization that needs you.
