What did Digital Wish need?

JIM helped Digital Wish create a well-written, concise press release to announce an event, initiative, or partnership.

This project will save us $1,348, allowing us to invest more heavily in our mission.

I want to use the skills I acquired from 40 years of work in public relations, marketing, graphic design, printing, and mailing.

After working as a newspaper reporter, I did public relations in the health care industry, and for Catholic Charities. I then served as Director of News Information for the Newark Archdiocese, where my main function was dealing with the press and sending out press releases.

Eventually, I started my own business and operated it for 30 years, overseeing everything including copywriting, design, printing, and mailing.

We had to cancel this project due to an internal shift in project priorities. Jim was very responsive.
