Promotional Professionals Pay It Forward Day Set For 2011
The second annual Promotional Professionals Pay It Forward Day, a yearly event where industry professionals from all across the country volunteer for their favorite charities all on the same day, has been set for Oct. 15.
The intent of Promotional Professionals Pay It Forward Day (aka PromoProsPIFDay) is for all facets of the industry--from suppliers, distributors, service providers and regional, national and international associations--to come together through volunteering to build a sense of community within the industry and to make a positive impact in the process.
“The reports that came in from the first event indicated that promotional professionals across the country volunteered solo as well as with their families, their companies and their regional associations for the first PromoProsPIFDay last year,” said Mark Shinn, MAS, president of Newcastle, Washington-based Incentives West. “In addition, we continue to hear many stories of how our industry professionals are helping their local communities each and every day. We anticipate an even greater turnout and participation for 2011 and are looking forward to people sharing even more how they are helping each other to make their communities better.”
Individuals, companies or groups simply select a charity that is meaningful to them (can be local, national or global organizations) and perform a needed service on Oct. 15.
Volunteers can connect with each other, get ideas on things to do and share their success stories on the event’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/PromoProsPIFDay.
