My personal and professional lives are converging.
At this terrifying moment in our nation’s history, my client FUSE (Fellowship of Urban Suburban Engagement) is definitely doing the hard work that needs to be done: promoting dialogue between disparate local communities “to deepen relationships, extend ourselves to one another, strive wholeheartedly to understand ‘the other’ in our community, help others understand us, and together, create a shared sense of destiny and purpose.”
I started by creating their logo, attended one amazing event which I wrote about here, and have since become increasingly active in FUSE’s work. Through this interfaith-nonprofit coalition, I helped to organize 2 buses that traveled to the Women’s March on Washington. The experience was incredible, not only because of what happened at the March, but what happened on our buses. And, in what was a first for me, I wrote an article about the day for our local newspaper, The Swarthmorean, that was featured on the front page. (see link below)
All of my nonprofit clients do incredible work and I am devoted to helping them get their messages out. In this instance, I flexed new creative muscles and that was exciting.
I would love to help your organization get its message out, too. To sweeten our relationship, please note that I have launched a campaign called Twistnshout for Tolerance. In the name of curbing hate, I will donate 10 percent of my creative fee for any project from a new client to one of four nonprofits that promotes tolerance.
