The organizations sponsored and assembled backpacks benefitting Austin-based charity Carrying Hope.
Online PR News – 05-December-2018 – AUSTIN, TX – Digital Pi, PFL, and Uberflip gave their customers the most rewarding gift of all this holiday season: a child's smile. The three companies, combined with the Austin Marketo Users Group, invited their customers to join them at Jacoby's Restaurant & Mercantile on November 29, 2018, to assemble "Hope Packs" benefitting local charity, Carrying Hope.
"Every year we set aside part of our marketing budget for client holiday gifts like branded mugs, or phone chargers. This year we wanted to do something different -- and we were pretty sure our clients wouldn't mind! Instead of spending our budget on branded tokens of our appreciation, we decided to invite some of our partners to a night of gifting it forward where we filled backpacks for local kids entering into foster care. What started as a simple idea grew into an event that touched all of our lives -- and sparked a new tradition at Digital Pi," said Ryan Vong , CEO of Digital Pi. (http://digitalpi.com)
Carrying Hope is an Austin, TX nonprofit providing comfort items and essentials to children entering the foster care system in Central Texas. More than 17,000 children are removed from their homes by CPS in the state of Texas every year. Many of them arrive on doorsteps with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Foster families are forced to quickly assemble necessities like formula, diapers, clothing, toiletry items, and more. Carrying Hope strives to fill that gap by gathering supplies and filling backpacks to gift to as many children as possible.
The backpacks have been making a difference in Texas communities since 2016. "We were thrilled that these three companies wanted to invest in our community as part of their annual holiday celebrations. What a wonderful alternative to traditional corporate gifting! Thanks to Digital Pi, Uberflip, and PFL we are able to continue making a difference in the lives of foster children and hope others will follow suit!" said Kristin Finan, Co-Founder of Carrying Hope.
