I heard about a great project by AAF (Acadiana Advertising Federation) – they are looking for a local non-profit that needs help with advertising, branding, or media needs. Is that you? Do you know a non-profit that needs FREE help. This is for local 501 (c)(3) agencies only. For those of you out of town, you could contact your local branch of the American Advertising Foundation and see if they are doing the same thing…

This is the press release they sent me:

“Acadiana Advertising Federation Accepting Applications for Service Project

 Need free professional advertising help?

The Acadiana Chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AdFed) is seeking to give back to the community by collaborating with a local 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization for an upcoming service project titled “Ad Campaign in a Day.” AdFed experts from local advertising agencies and student members from UL-Lafayette will work together with your nonprofit to help with advertising, branding, and other creative or media needs. The event will be Saturday, June 7, 2014 at The Switch in Downtown Lafayette.

Interested nonprofits may complete an application to be considered by AdFed member participants who will vote on the selected nonprofit. Email the 2014 Ad Campaign in a Day Application  to Susan Allardyce, AdFed’s community relations chairperson, at SusanA@home24bank.com by Monday, May 19, 2014.”

These are a creative, knowledgeable, professional and pretty cool group of people – I know that, because I am a member. Please share this post with any one you think will benefit.
