I have always thought it a magical word. When I am truly grateful, the world seems brighter and more friendly. Gratefulness seems to wipe out all grumbling and complaints. It gives me a fresh perspective and strength.
Since CRASH+SUES opened it’s doors June 4th, 1990, we have been amazed and humbled by all the people, agencies and brands we have been privileged to work with - who have trusted us with their ‘baby’.
I was raised that if you are blessed you bless - you give back. C+S has always striven to give back whether in dollars or in kind work. Back in 2009, we actually wrote our vision for C+S Foundation into our strategic plan.
Our initial vision of a full 501c3, though a lovely idea, never happened...
My Dad always said, ‘GOD blesses small beginnings.’ During 2020, C+S was incredibly grateful to be open and working. That gratefulness lead us back to the vision for C+S Foundation and small beginnings. C+S Foundation was started with our partnership with NCF in 2021. We have four giving priorities - 1) Non-political; 2) Good history; 3) Low overhead/good stewards; and 4) Priority given to the local community.
Finally, the reason I am writing this today is that we have decided to share with you those organizations. We want to highlight the incredible work they are doing. We are going to start with Urban Ventures. We are so grateful for them.
