We've been making strides here at CurlyRed to make working with non-profits an important part of our company. Why? Well, first of all, non-profits do so much to benefit the communities we live in. We support them and want to help them in the missions that have chosen to pursue.
Secondly, there are thousands of non-profits out there who need design work, but are working with limited budgets, tight deadlines and an absence of in-house graphic or web support staff.
For both of these reasons, it's become a win-win to find and partner with non-profits, both here in the Baltimore area and across the country.
Here's some non-profits we've worked with recently and what they are all about:
The Semi-Colon Club helps create and promote outreach and awareness of colon cancer. They are hosting their 3rd Annual Semi-Colon Crawl on Sunday, September 25th 2011 at 9 a.m. in Hannah More Park in Reisterstown. CurlyRed partnered with Ron Shillman at Direct Designs and the Semi-Colon Club to design a full-color mug that will distributed to all participants.
There Goes My Hero provides hope and nourishment to Leukemia patients and their families. CurlyRed has been assisting There Goes My Hero with t-shirt and signage design. Some of the signs will be displayed at the upcoming Annual Bike Ride and Family Festival on September 25th, 2011 at Oregon Ridge in Hunt Valley.
Sam Meister is the the step-brother of CurlyRed's principal designer and president, M. Kendall Ludwig. Sam is a senior in high-school and battling A.L.L. Leukemia. This upcoming event on Monday, September 26th is very near and dear to our hearts. Please visit the blog to see all the details, and consider attending or donating to the cause.
