This project will save us $3,607 , allowing us to use those funds for supplies and food that directly impact our youth volunteers.

What We Need

  • Designs for a pre-determined number of marketing or communications materials (examples: one-pager/fact sheets, case studies, fundraising collateral, event invitations, annual reports, and pamphlets)
  • Templates with accurate, print-ready specifications
  • Note: This project does not include printing

Additional Details

Pebble Tossers needs a takeaway for our upcoming 10th-anniversary gala. Our thought is to have some version of an evergreen Kindness Calendar that people will want to open different opportunities each day. Thinking something like a color wheel style or advent calendar style. Needs to reflect our brand and be visually appealing so that families will want to display in their homes.

How This Will Help

For our 10th Anniversary, we want event goers to leave the event feeling inspired to give back to our community and that they can take small steps each day that make our world a better place.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a general idea of the text for the calendar, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a great brand standards packet, and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

Start a ripple of giving is our tagline - it has so many great opportunities to use for a marketing platform. We have worked with over 14,000 families over the past 10 years so we have access to lots of potential stories!
