We work on behalf of many clients to promote their companies, programs and events. That’s what we do every day at MessageCoach Public Relations. But one of our favorite commitments is giving back to the community.
It’s so true that when you give, it comes back to you ten times strong. We are proud of the pro bono work we’ve achieved for many worthy causes and dynamic groups.
In Battle Creek, we provide pro bono services to the Generation E Institute (GenEI) and its Annual Student Business Showcase. The event allows young entrepreneurs showcase and sell their inventions. The Generation E Institute (GenEI) is a non-profit that has developed unique and innovative curricula that help create an entrepreneurial mindset in individuals so they can compete in an ever-changing economy. We love participating with this group and watching the young business people succeed.
This summer we’re promoting the Walker Tavern Wheels, a vintage baseball team sponsored by the historic stagecoach inn based in the Irish Hills. The team has been together three years, and they bring hundreds of visitors to the Walker Tavern Historic site, which is managed by Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources. With state budget constraints, we do what we can to promote this special historic gem in Michigan and a great bunch of baseball players.
In the past, we’ve also provided pro bono services to Detcharter.com, a volunteer group that educates the community about Detroit’s historic charter revision process. The Detroit Charter Revision Commission is sending the document to the State of Michigan for review before placing it on the city’s ballot for a citizen vote in November 8, 2011.
We’ve also provided pro bono services to the New Enterprise Forum in Ann Arbor, the Annual Collaboration for Entrepreneurship in Ann Arbor, and the Michigan Homeland Security Consortium.
For all of these good deeds, we’ve made friends, supported many excellent groups and had a lot of fun. Our advice? If you really want to build good relationships and a good reputation, give back to your community and your industry.
We’re always looking for good causes to support. Have any suggestions for MessageCoach Public Relations or its partner organizations?
