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.

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?

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.

Marketing for Nonprofits

If I have to choose, I'd rather have our collective stories - about the War in Iraq, the Recession, and Obama's Imminent Election to the Presidency :)- be debated, discussed and narrated by as many folks as possible. "American history is longer, larger, more various, more beautiful, and more terrible than anything anyone has ever said about it." James A. Baldwin Kudos to Denzel Washington and Oprah Winfrey for producing this great movie.

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.
