2. Its CreateAthon! The best day of the year! We reach the front door together and smile covertly in the knowing that ahead lies 24+ intense hours in which we, and 30 volunteers, will be tested to our creative cores with start-to-finish projects for nine worthy nonprofits.SEPTEMBER 15 & 16, 2011 3. NONPROFITS SERVED:haiti orphanfoundationvital connections of south carolinamemory matterskershaw countyliteracy associationpasosthe graduationimperativesc school for the deaf and the blindyouth corpsmirciAnd then Peyton does a headstand and a gigantic penguin rounds the kitchen corner and Kevin parades through the building in Tims Haz-Mat suit and we all laugh deep and hearty and reach for just one or two more Sara Made Those cookies. And then we are back at it.And the sun comes up, and the shiny and showered nonprofit clients arrive, and we usher them to little meeting rooms where we show & tell them the stories of the work weve created and the ways we think it will help them do what they do a little bit better. And they look us deep in our eyes, all the way to our hearts, and say:You will never know what this means to us. You will never know what a difference you have made.And we tear up and exhale and eventually go home, spent and happy. And we fall into the most peaceful sleep, thinking of the work, and the people, satisfied that weve done something together, something good, something important. Knowing it was, indeed, no question, without a doubt, the very best day of the year.Looming: A whirlwind of BRIEFINGS AND BRAINSTORMING. Followed quickly by LETS DO THIS, during which you confidently stare at your sketchbook hoping a great idea will magically surface. Then comes I HAVE THE ONE PROJECT IN THE WORLD THAT HAS NO SOLUTION.And still you carry on until along comes A passerby who glances at your screen and offers an encouraging word, a little i love that and you think, that? really? maybe i sort of love that, too, and you look at it anew and see its potential. And you put on your headphones and buckle down, getting it done, seeing it through. In no time it is 2 a.m., and THE WITCHING HOUR, and a wave of questioning moves through the building, team to team, office to office, sketchbook to sketchbook. This will never work. What were we thinking? Maybe we should just start over. Well never finish in time. 4. haiti orphan foundationHAITIORPHANFOUNDATION.ORG IDENTITY UPDATE, COLLATERAL, FUNDRAISING, CONSULTING, VIDEO 5. vital connections of south carolinaBRAND/IDENTITY DEVELOPMENT, TAGLINE, COLLATERAL DESIGN AND COPYWRITING 6. memory mattersMARKETING/SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGY, NAMING, COLLATERAL DESIGN AND COPYWRITING, PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT 7. literac ykershaw countya s s o c i a t i o nkershaw county literacy associationBRANDING, IDENTITY/TAGLINE DEVELOPMENT, COLLATERAL DESIGN AND COPYWRITING 8. OUR SUPPORTERSRobert Wood Johnson Foundation Local Funding PartnershipsThe Duke EndowmentSouth Carolina March of DimesNew Morning FoundationGreenwood GeneticsChildrens Trust of SCSisters of Charity FoundationGreenville Hospital SystemPalmetto HealthLexington Medical CenterProvidence HospitalThe Knight FoundationOUR SERVICESSince 2005, PASOs has served as a connector between South Carolinas Latino families and improved maternal and child health. Studies show Latina women need more information about prenatal care and have limited access to maternal and child resources. Language barriers and disenfranchisement leave them unempowered to navigate the intricacies of the U.S. healthcare system. As the outcome gap widens between the Latino population and others, cost implications to the system rise higher and higher. For South Carolina, where the Latino population grew faster between 2000 and 2010 than in any other state, this creates an alarming need. YOU CAN AFFECT THE OUTCOMEYour monetary support can make a difference for us all. In a climate of seemingly uncontrollable healthcare costs, preventative health measures directly affect the economic burden we all share. Simply put: your donation can ensure South Carolinas improved health drives a more robust community.
