Carew Co is on the Move

Carew Co. has picked up shop and moved their office.

Not too far, mind you. They’ve moved from the 3rd floor of The Eagles Building at 6th and Idaho down to a larger space in the lower level of that same building.

(Is it possible to play the theme song to The Jeffersons backwards? Would that be appropriate here? Sorry, couldn’t resist…)

Congratulations to the Carew Co. crew.

Giving Back – The United Way

For the past several months, a group of folks from several different agencies and the local creative industry in the Treasure Valley have been working to make the United Way of Treasure Valley’s latest campaign a success.

The end result: an integrated campaign that features a four-minute video, three television spots, newspaper ads, a microsite (, radio, online ads, collateral materials and more. This effort will benefit the United Way Community Campaign, which, in turn, allows the United Way to help over 30 local charities with funding each year, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Idaho Foodbank, Girl Scouts, and more.

This work was done entirely on a pro-bono basis, and those involved sacrificed a great deal of time — often their personal time, before or after business hours — to make it happen. At the very least, they deserve some recognition for their efforts. In no particular order, the group involved includes:

David Cook, Stoltz Marketing Group
Paul Carew, Carew Co.
Dave Sloyer, Wirestone
Kristy Weyrich, W Design
Doug Gneiting, Stoltz Marketing Group
Lorena Davis & Crew, North by Northwest
Todd Meier Photography
Robbin Gibson, Drake Cooper
Snake River Technology

The campaign is also benefiting from media donations from The Idaho Statesman, Journal Broadcast Group, and companies such as Citi, who donated funds toward the media buy.

David Cook provides even more detail about this project on the Stoltz Marketing Group website, if you’d like to read about it further.

At the end of the day, however, the goal is to drive as many donations to the United Way as possible. If you can donate, please do. If you’d like to learn more about the how’s and why’s of the United Way, take a look here.
