The following is an excerpt from member Danielle Dillard’s personal blog, A Healthy Pace.
Recently I had the pleasure of attending the 2011-2012 Public Service Campaign Kickoff event hosted by Ad 2 Orlando. We are lucky to have a team right here in Orlando that offers pro bono services to local non-profit organizations in need of an advertising makeover.
The event was held at the Hilton Altamonte Springs, and the presentation featured the announcement of this year’s client selection. Last year’s client was Pet Rescue by Judy. The team created an updated logo, radio spots, billboard ads, a local television ad, signage and more for the rescue shelter in Seminole county.
For those of you that weren’t there, I am sure you’re dying to know who this year’s client is. Drumroll please…The recipient for this year is Safe House of Seminole, and was selected from chosen from more than 60 applicants.
Safe House of Seminole is an emergency residential safe haven for women and their children fleeing domestic violence. During their stay, residents receive individual crisis counseling, case management, safety planning, emergency clothing and food, support groups, children’s services and personal advocacy.
I’m excited to work with such a wonderful organization dedicated to housing and improving the lives of women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
It was my first experience with Ad 2 Orlando, and the fact that I signed up online as soon as I got home – and emailed about joining the public service committee – I can tell you that it won’t be my last.
