Since posting the item on Marty Casey coming to New Zealand I have received quite a few questions asking why I put the item on the blog.
Actually I was pleased to get feedback, it showed people were reading what I wrote, but perhaps I should have made brief mention as to why I was involved with the Marty Casey “Making it Happen Tour”; so to clarify here’s why.
Having worked in the charity sector for a number of years, assisting charities with various marketing and media activities, I knew that I had skills that would help make the tour a success, so when Jo and Tania (Making it Happen Promotions) asked for help I quickly offered my services,
At Adage we have a commitment to give assistance to at least one not-for-profit organisation each year, and last year we worked with Koru Care Charitable Trust.
The Koru Care Charitable Trust helps children in the community who have an ongoing medical condition, terminal illness or significant disadvantage by giving them a trip of a lifetime to Disneyland.
Our work involved us helping to raise its media profile in the lead up to the Trusts Gala Dinner & Charity Auction. We will continue to support Koru Care throughout 2009.
Adage also assists:
The Courageous Women Charitable Trust.
The aims of this Trust is to empower, inspire and support women survivors of sexual abuse.
As a relatively new trust, Courageous Women are in need of building their public profile, and are working alongside them to ensure the public learn of the work they are doing in the community.
Mercy Hospice Auckland
The Hospice relies very much on the help, support and generosity of the community, Adage Business & Media Services is supporting the Hospice with planning and other activities for the fundraising activities the Hospice will embark on during the coming year.
Adage receives numerous requests for assistance from community groups, charities etc, these are mainly of a monetary nature, however we feel that we can possibly help more by offering our services free of charge.
