Today’s post is about giving. A long time ago I read an article about how you can feel rich even when you don’t make a lot of money. I have kept this in mind as Jeff & I continue to look for full-time jobs. One of the suggestions that stayed with me is to donate to a charity. You may think that you don’t have anything to spare, but there is always someone who can use your help – even if it is as simple as a dollar in the cup of a homeless person.
On Thursday, my friend, Dian, is hosting a fundraiser. Dian started a charity a few years ago called Creative Pitch. She runs a marketing and graphic design firm, Brainforest, and saw that her crew was throwing away barely used markers, paper, etc. just because they were maybe purchased for a particular client pitch or because something newer and better had come along. Dian, being the awesome person that she is, thought all of that trash was unacceptable and thought “hmmm… we’re probably not the only agency with extra supplies and maybe teachers or after school programs could use these items” and started “pitching” them to schools and community organizations – and Creative Pitch was born!

On Thursday, May 28, Creative Pitch is hosting a fundraiser – Something To Pitch About! Sadly, I have plans that cannot be changed on Thursday night (hi Jen Lancaster!), but I encourage all of you to go have fun at Lumen (839 W. Fulton Market) from 6-9PM. The tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door – of course, drinks are included in that ticket price! For all of the details and purchasing tickets online, please click here.
If you work with a creative shop that may have extra art supplies, or you’re looking to volunteer, Creative Pitch is always looking for extra help, too!
Remember, even if you aren’t doing as well as you’d like to be financially, we all have something to give. Creative Pitch welcomes your help on Thursday night!
