Buy One Give One Cause Marketing for Soldiers

Cause Related Marketing

Current Energy, a website which sells energy efficiency products online, is offering a buy one give one solar charger for soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, the latest example of a trend I noted back in January with TOMS Shoes. When you buy the $150 Solio for Soldiers Kit, which uses solar cells to charge gadgets like cell phones, iPods, and digital cameras, Current Energy ships a matching.

She told us about her husband’s injuries from a roadside bomb in Iraq. Lee Woodruff spoke yesterday afternoon here at the AFP Conference. She had some good points and some poignant moments, but one stuck with me. She talked about the importance of living in the moment. Right now. Not thinking about the 10 things you need to do today or this week, or the things that happened yesterday, but enjoying right now. Because that’s all we really have.

Direct mail envelopes–five ideas for nonprofit fundraising

ImpactMax

Real-life examples include envelopes with the following printed messages: &# It’s one of the most powerful and dangerous initiation rights imaginable–and every day more than 5,000 girls are at risk&# or “94 million American children with no health care; zero has been done to stop global warming; 155,000 US troops stuck in Iraq—49 US senators are behind it all.&#. (Another stellar quest post from nonprofit fund raising expert Rick Schwartz !).

Support for the Troops a Cause Marketing Winner

Cause Related Marketing

Going back to 2002 Outback has also sent employee volunteers to the Middle East to feed the troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. Earlier this month the Center for Social Impact Communication at Georgetown University published a study that found that the cause that most resonates with Americans right now is supporting the troops, something several sponsors seem to have already understood.

Cause Marketing for Veteran's Causes Shows Support for Military Vets

Cause Related Marketing

Outback has also sent employee volunteers to the Middle East to feed the troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. In the lead-up to Veteran’s Day, held in the U.S. last Friday Nov. 11, 2011, Time magazine ran a cover package that concluded that the Americans and military veterans have never been further apart culturally. Well, the warrior culture and mainstream American culture don’t intersect much, the thinking goes.

Using Colored Ribbons to Symbolize Your Cause

Cause Related Marketing

It is also used by the Quebec peace movement to signal their disapproval of the war in Iraq. How powerful is the colored ribbon as a visual awareness symbol? Can causes and nonprofits continue to adopt existing colored ribbons and yet still have meaning invested in all the rest? What’s the potential for confusion when two or more different charities/causes claim the same color of ribbon? When another cause adopts a colored ribbon already in use, does it undermine meaning or expand it?

Iraq and Afghanistan veterans: We have your back. A lot of companies and organizations try to create online communities. That’s easy and hard. It’s easy to create a place for people to congregate. It’s hard to get the people there. If you want people to join, you have to give them a very good reason. Unless you already have a critical mass of highly engaged people, very few people are going to hang out in your community for the sake of hanging out.

Fundraising Dips In First Quarter Of 2009

Care2

Furthermore, this is the first time in 8 years that we have a Democrat in the White House who is very supportive of major issues such as health care reform, ending the war in Iraq, etc so fundraising asks are not as “fight the right&# focused as they were during the Bush administration. The struggling economy hit nonprofits hard in the first quarter of 2009.

Should Fundraisers Pray For Religion?

The Agitator

In other words, suppose you were to read today that the new prime minister of Iraq was the leader of a secular force that didn’t have any religious allegiance. Bear with me on this! Any research I’ve seen that looks into propensity to donate as it might relate to an individual’s religiosity comes to the same conclusion … the more important religion is in the life of an individual, the more likely they are to make charitable gifts. Always see a strong correlation.

Minus the Mighty Bat of Cause Marketing, “Run to Home Base” is Stranded on First

Massachusetts General Hospital and the Red Sox Foundation are doing a great thing: they’ve teamed up to put on a road race to help soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with combat stress disorders and/or traumatic brain injury.

How emotion can guide us to rational behavior

Nonprofit Marketing Blog

More recently, we have seen policy failures in Iraq, where the United States was oblivious to the psychological effects of the Hussein regime on the Iraqi people, and during the financial crisis, when we trusted financiers to make rational decisions under stress and underestimated what Brooks calls “emotional contagions&# that swept through the profession, leading bankers to fail to identify risk. Just about every field of science shows emotion trumps reason in human decision-making.
