"You must be the change you want to see in the world." - Gandhi
I chose to work with cause-focused organizations because I want to support people who are improving lives. Whether you're a nonprofit, social justice organization, social enterprise, or another type of company that believes a profit can serve a greater purpose, you’re my people.
And so are the folks below. We are in the businesses of doing things differently. We are change makers. We are active and engaged. Won’t you join us?
Habitat for Humanity Chicago
They’re committed to seeing Chicago thrive. By partnering with committed residents and trusted organizations, they help families and communities achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through housing, beautification, and development projects.
Project: I re-wrote the majority of their website for a relaunch in the fall of 2017, which included approximately 30 pages of content. I also provided feedback and suggestions on some of the page names and layouts.
Atlanta Dream Center
Founded in 2003 by Pastor Paul Palmer and his family, ADC exists for one reason: To reach the lost, rescue those in need and restore the brokenhearted. They do this through three major ministries, iAm (homeless individuals), Out of Darkness (women who have been trafficked or prostituted) and Metro Kidz (at-risk children).
Project: Seeds of Hope annual benefit dinner. I wrote the communications and collateral pieces, created a marketing plan, provided art direction, solicited sponsorships, formulated an event strategy, assisted in logistics, and wrote the post-event press release.
Dwell exists to employ refugees in the community of Clarkston, Georgia. And through the service of cleaning, they employ people who have come to their community from all over the world, looking to rebuild a better life for themselves and their families.
Project: I wrote their price increase email for 2018, which notified all residential and commercial customers that rates would increase to further ensure a livable wage for employees. Additionally, Dwell won my holiday Communications Strategy Session giveaway, so I performed a review of all their marketing and communications, provided feedback, and offered suggestions moving forward.
Be the Bridge
This budding organization utilizes resources and conversations to further racial reconciliation. They believe that the Church must become a bigger answer to this issue, and are equipping people to host racially diverse small groups that create open lines of communication.
Project: I wrote their #GivingTuesday email and social media campaign, and have consulted on their communications strategy. I also managed their social media during their official launch event.
Dr. Bombay’s / The Learning Tea
One of my favorite spots in Atlanta, this darling little tea shop in the Candler Park neighborhood funds “life scholarships” for girls in India. With these funds, girls can go to college, have a safe place to live, and have all their basic needs provided for. (And her chai is my absolute favorite!)
Project: I have consulted on their marketing and communications strategy, and also traveled to India to meet the girls in the program.
Orange is a division of The reThink Group, a nonprofit organization providing resources and training to help churches maximize their influence on the spiritual growth of the next generation. They have amazing curriculum from birth through adult years, and a fantastic series of events for church leaders, volunteers, students and kids.
Project: I served as the Event Marketing Director here for almost six years, so I pop in for odds and ends when they need outside help.
Restoration Dallas Chiropractic
They break down health and fitness concepts that have been publicized to seem more complex than they really are. Their goal is to provide you with simple, common-sense tips to preventing disease and live a fuller, healthier lifestyle.
Project: I consult on their marketing and communications efforts.
TrueNorth Freedom Project
TrueNorth helps individuals, families and ministries navigate our sex-saturated culture through resources and conversations. By learning how to talk about sexual issues with grace and compassion, relationships will be strengthened, kids will be better prepared for the challenges, and the Church will become more effective in leading many to true freedom in Christ.
Project: I wrote their 2016 year-end giving campaign, which included emails, social media and a printed letter. I also wrote copy for a 60-second video and printed piece. And I have consulted on general marketing and communications needs.
