We help businesses integrate and promote good causes, and non-profits better market themselves. We've worked in cause marketing and "creative consulting" for companies such as: Cabot (with Reward Volunteers web app), Solid Threads (with Solidaritees), Music Dojo, and Vermont Folk Rocker. We’ve partnered with and helped promote various non-profits, such as Green Mountain Animal Defenders, Sudef, and 350.org (see Events).
As a 12-year-old Nilima won a contest to rename an NBA team (Washington Bullets to Wizards), and has since worked to hone her naming and slogan skills. In high school, she co-devised a series of ice cream flavors to support endangered apes — whose names played off species’ names and matched ingredients — which received commendation from Jane Goodall. Nilima named Solid Threads’ charitable partnership wing and devised many other slogans and design concepts: here and here are a few examples shown on clothing, with the skill-sets being adaptable across media, and beyond apparel. These are examples used for non-profit fundraising and cause-marketing.
