"There’s nothing that a sense of humor and a deep breath can’t help."
I empower companies and organizations to tell their stories better. Whether that story is about who they are -- (branding/strategic communications) – how they want to change the world -- (advocacy/behavior change) or what they offer (product/services) -- I help them evolve beyond building brand and awareness (“us”) to sparking conversation and action (‘we”).
My work ethos is built on the idea that listening is the first step to reaching the hearts and mind of your audience—whether they are customers, users, donors, activists or other stakeholders.
Thanks so much for sharing this application and its potential for use within our project in South Sudan. We will contact you further in the event our project gets greenlit. Only 3 more days of waiting! : ) We appreciate all the work you do on behalf of the disabled and hope to have an opportunity to work with you soon. -- Virginia
Thank you Mary and NotImpossible Labs for offering their expertise in making this Wellness Center happen! What’s so exciting about what they do is they train local persons to use locally sourced materials to create products people need, like solar-powered cell phone chargers, and even prosthetic limbs. Their Build: Not Impossible project and Prosthetic in a Box are piloting now in South Sudan's Unity state in an IDP camp. Very excited about this development and potential opportunity to work with them! If you haven’t checked out Not Impossible’s work, they are pretty darn inspiring! http://www.notimpossible.com ❤️
Many thanks for your support Malte, and for taking the time to discuss ways we might complement and enhance the work Light of the World is doing in both services and livelihoods for persons with disabilities should we get the green light to develop this idea!
