Every year, we invite proposals from local nonprofits who are interested in some pro-bono communications services. Why? Without going into the whole thing, I’ve always felt that giving back is important – and working with a community partner for a year is a great way for me to do the work I love for someone in our community who couldn’t necessarily afford our services otherwise!
This year, we’ve selected Earth Week as the 2013 Jaggers Communications Community Partner. Earth Week is a series of events that celebrate Earth Day in Charlottesville and the surrounding counties. The cornerstone of Earth Week is the EcoFair, an event offering workshops, live music, a book swap, local brews and food, and kid-friendly entertainment, all highlighting the work of environmental organizations and businesses in the community. We are very excited to be developing an integrated, strategic communications plan to support Earth Week’s programs, events, and resources.
Watch for communications materials about Earth Week to start coming out in the next few weeks, and we’ll watch for you at the EcoFair on Sunday, April 21st from noon to 6pm at the Main Street Arena!
