Dream Big is a program put together by Drake Cooper as a way to give back to the community, and more specifically to non-profit organizations that are in need of a little extra help. From the Dream Big section of their website: Through this annual program, we will work with one selected organization to help develop a unique in-kind branding and cause marketing campaign. We hope that our joint work with the charitable organization increases community awareness, understanding and inspires action around an important cause.
This program is similar to others, such as Oliver Russell’s O-pen Purse program, which offers donations or in-kind assistance to deserving non-profit organizations. From Oliver Russell’s O-Pen Purse application: Each year Oliver Russell partners with a select number of nonprofit groups to help them meet their organizational goals. We provide grants in the form of advertising, design and interactive services, marketing consulting, and, occasionally, monetary contributions.
Drake Cooper is currently accepting nominations for this year’s Dream Big program, and will be through October 31st. More information is available from a release on Drake Cooper’s website, or on the Dream Big page itself.
Oliver Russell is also accepting applications for next year’s O-Pen Purse program through November 1st. More information about his program is available on their website.
To both agencies, and everyone else who makes an effort to give back to their community: Well Done.
