Creative Cares

We turned $67.29 into $23,000 worth of positive impact!

When I wrote to you a few weeks ago, excited about the impact we've made this year, I realized that I'd actually mis-stated an important figure in the calculation.
When I met with the Executive Director at one of our partner nonprofits and she told me just one CreativeCares project gave them a $23,000 boost in contributions, I had not done my math correctly due to the deliriousness of the flu. Your impact in this one project resulted in a 29256% return on your investment, that's right, and it's amazing what we can do together.
This is an example of how big of an impact your contributions are making in the community—no matter how small. Whether you've volunteered, donated money, or both, it’s going a long way to making your community a better place for everyone.
It’s so rewarding to see our efforts positively impacting the community in such a tangible way. This is just one example of how your contributions to CreativeCares help nonprofits and the communities they serve in a real, measurable and important way. Whether you've volunteered with CreativeCares, donated money to us, told a friend about us, or all of the above, it’s going a long way and making a real difference. And after all, we don’t give just to feel warm and fuzzy. We give to create lasting positive change--and that’s exactly what we’re seeing. Thank you!
We need your help to build on this momentum in the coming year in order for CreativeCares to continue living out our mission. To accomplish our lofty goals, we need to raise $8,000 by the end of this year.
If you, your office or family have not made their charitable holiday contributions/sponsorships, will you please give whatever you can to CreativeCares?

In 2012, we plan on matching 250 qualified creative professionals to under-resourced nonprofit organizations who need them. The benefit to the community will be massive. CreativeCares also helps meet a huge need by overcoming the financial, and therefore creative, limitations nonprofits run into constantly.

Please give $50 right now if you can. Obviously, more can do more, but we greatly appreciate support in any amount. Do the most you can do. As you can see above, it goes a long way, and if we work together, it will go even farther in 2012.

When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left,
and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.
