Results: Helpline Raises Money to Keep its Women’s Shelter Open

If you saw our blog post about the motion graphic we designed to help raise funds for a local women’s homeless shelter, then you might be interested to know that we just learned that they have raised all the needed funds to keep this shelter open. A board member told me this week that the coverage in the local paper, direct mail to donors and supporters, and this motion graphic helped generate enough donor interest in the course of month to sustain its operation through 2012.

We’re thrilled at the news, and want to thank any of our readers who helped with this project for their generosity. This is the best part of being professional communicators—when words and images converge to help relieve suffering and bring hope to people in need.
