We don’t purchase cheese baskets for our clients. Don’t get us wrong, we love cheese, but we try to bring a bit of good to the world year-round, especially during the holidays.
In 2012, we designed and painted a mural for our client, United Way for Greater Austin. We also donated to another client, KUT, to help them finish out their new building at the corner of Dean Keeton and Guadalupe.
In 2011, we donated 5% of our profits to Ripples of Hope for Children in the names of clients. Ripples of Hope for Children is a non-profit organization giving kids in the foster care and juvenile justice systems the help and services they need for success.
In 2010, we donated 5% of our net profit to United Way Capital Area in our clients’ names. We did the same for Save the Children and SafePlace in 2008. To commemorate our 2008 donations, we created the GOOD poster. You can see the limited-edition poster hanging on many of our clients’ walls.
In 2009, we donated $10,000 worth of website services to ConnectHer. ConnectHer.com is a local nonprofit that matches donors with projects benefiting women in the developing world.
In 2007, we bought sheep in each of our clients’ names through Oxfam. The sheep were sent to impoverished countries where their wool was used for warmth and the extra was sold by the recipients, providing them with much-needed revenue.
In 2006, we gave to St. Judes Hospital to help fight childhood cancer and other terminal illnesses.
Along with donating money, we donate our time to worthy causes. In 2009, the Muscular Dystrophy Association locked up Rachel for GOOD during their yearly Most Wanted Citizen Campaign. She raised hundreds of dollars in bail money to benefit the charity and children affected by MD. Jennifer created a mural for Andrews Elementary School in Austin, TX. The Creative Suitcase team then helped her paint it with The Entrepreneurs Foundation.
