Synopsis and Key Points:
Year of Making a Difference is a charitable awareness and fundraising initiative managed by Gallop that will benefit non-profit organizations in St. Louis.
St. Louis Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired is very pleased to announce it has been selected to participate in the "Year of Making a Difference" program presented by Gallop, a major law firm headquartered in St. Louis.
"Year of Making a Difference" is a unique charitable awareness and fundraising initiative managed by Gallop that will benefit not only Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired but additional non-profit organizations in St. Louis that assist people right here in our community. The Year of Making a Difference program benefits local non-profit enterprises that assist people who may be impoverished, sick, disabled, or looking for a second chance in life, including children, adults, senior citizens and military personnel.
David Ekin, President of the Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired says;
"Thanks to Gallop, we will no doubt benefit from increased exposure and increased awareness of our mission. In addition, the firm's attorneys and staff will provide much needed volunteer time here at the Society. We are honoured to partner with Gallop and to be a part of the 'Year of Making a Difference' initiative,"
Gallop Managing Partner Thomas J. Campbell observes;
"So far as we know, Gallop is the only law firm in St. Louis with a charitable program of this kind. Many law firms support a variety of non-profit enterprises. Yet, it is never enough because charitable needs in our community loom large. 'The Year of Making a Difference' is one way Gallop is trying to do more in a challenging economy."
The Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired is scheduled to participate in Gallop's "The Year of Making a Difference" program in January 2012.
How the Program Works
Starting in January 2012 and throughout "The Year of Making a Difference," Gallop will partner with one non-profit organization per month, except in one month where two charities that often work together will be jointly showcased.
Each month, Gallop will launch a charity awareness campaign on www.LinkedIn.com and via additional communications.
The firm will acknowledge every new follower of Gallop's LinkedIn profile by donating one dollar to that month's participating non-profit organization.
Every month, Gallop attorneys and staff also will provide volunteer support and hands-on participation in activities managed by the non-profit organizations.
Thomas J. Campbell, Managing Partner at Gallop, says;
"We created 'Year of Making a Difference' to enhance our attorneys, paralegals and staff members' current involvement with charitable organizations with a goal of helping even greater numbers of people, particularly children, during these challenging economic times for non-profits. Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired is a terrific organization that truly helps many people in greater St. Louis. We look forward to working together in 2012."
