Under the guise of "one day for Eindhoven," 35 driven communication professionals from LICHT Marketing & Communication Professionals, YER and CC-03, among others, helped five social organizations on Friday, Nov. 24, 2017: Experience that State, Foundation I Want!, Love Doctor, Mytylschool and Weekend School, with concrete marketing & communication issues. And all for free, or Pro Bono.
Nathalie van Hooijdonk (Volunteer Leader for I Want Foundation!) via Facebook:
"The energy is palpable the moment you walk in. The murmurs, the laughter, the hugs, the warmth. Those are the perks on a day like todayag. It's only eight hours, all right, and that little bit on top, but believe me, you do it gladly. Eight hours a year of your working life you give up pro bono, from your heart, free, gratuitous, for nought, to foundations that don't have the money to bring in certain expertise. But who do feel the pain of growth, who do have issues that are now hindering them from going forward, who just hard needed.
Such a pro bono day, organized annually by Samen voor Eindhoven, always feels more than good. The connection, the focus on results and the energy that comes with it. But I also felt something else today. A feeling of 'We're not done yet, we'll help a little further' ... because as professionals, we do want to see results.
That was my day. Which I experienced finely with Marieke Verhoeven, Simone Hein, Didie Schackman, Marjan van Wijngaarden and Ingrid. Thank you girls that we could do this together. And you there, from that special foundation IK WIL, Eindhoven... you are not rid of us yet....!!!"
