beMarketing was excited to sponsor the Scream Softball team at their annual fundraising event!
At beMarketing, we feel the community is as important to us as our clients are, and that’s why we created our beCaring Project! Brandon and the team wanted to ensure we gave back to the community and supported local and regional initiatives throughout each year. Whether we are creating a website pro-bono for a worthy cause, lending a hand at a volunteering event, or simply supporting the cause with a donation, we are proud to partake and support the many causes we have throughout the years with our beCaring initiative.
Spotlights of Organizations We Support
A beCaring project that we always look forward to being a part of, the HEADstrong Foundation held a Leadership Development Seminar in partnership with The Community’s Foundation. Members of The Hive volunteered, and our team leader, Brandon, was a key speaker at the event. The networking seminar featured professionals on various experience levels and business backgrounds, sharing insight on business best practices to HEADstrong supporters. The HEADstrong Foundation was established in 2007 to offer financial, residential, and emotional support to families affected by cancer. To date, they have assisted over 18,000 families and raised over $19 million.Visit Site
Fresh Smiles Foundation
One of the ways that beMarketing gives back to the community is by using our marketing talents to develop websites for organizations that make a positive impact in the lives of others—and that’s exactly what we did for Fresh Smiles. The Fresh Smiles Foundation is a non-profit organization that grants and supports children who have a passion or special talent, and whose lives have been adversely impacted by financial roadblocks beyond their control. To help support their mission, beMarketing developed their website and continues to support their events each year.Visit Site
Alex's Lemonade Stand
Every year, an estimated 250,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide. As part of our beCaring project, we give charitable contributions each year to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). ALSF is changing the lives of children with cancer around the country by raising awareness, supporting families, funding research and empowering others to help find a cure for childhood cancer.Visit Site
Wounded Warrior Project
Our beCaring project gives us the opportunity to give back to local and national organizations. We are honored to give back to the Wounded Warrior Project by supporting one of their local annual events. beMarketing contributed to the effort that helps make a difference in the lives of more than 52,000 servicemen and women physically injured in recent military conflicts, the 500,000 living with invisible wounds, from depression to post-traumatic stress disorder and the 320,000 experiencing debilitating brain trauma. The Wounded Warrior Project helps servicemen and women who have been injured in the field by giving warriors a voice and empowering them to begin the journey to recovery.Visit Site
The Hive loves to show support for local businesses that give back to the community in a big way. As part of our beCaring project, we were able to help JFCS prepare Thanksgiving meals for individuals and families who struggle with financial stability alongside other like-minded volunteers. Tracing its roots back to 1855, Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Philadelphia (JFCS) is committed to strengthening the lives of families and individuals across generations and cultures to achieve stability, independence, and community.Visit Site
The Joy of Sox
beCaring is proud to be a part of a new initiative called The Joy of Sox. The Hive hosted a drive to provide socks to the homeless community and various shelters in the area. For one month, the team collected socks for men, women, and children in boxes set up in the office and virtually through donations to The Joy of Sox Amazon Charity Smile List. At the end of the drive, members of The Hive were able to drop off the donations directly and record the totals. beMarketing’s sock drive was a huge success. Through a team effort, beMarketing was able to donate 102 pairs of men’s socks, 128 pairs of women’s socks, and 150 pairs of kids socks, for a total of 380 pairs of socks! The Joy of Sox began a few years back, with a mission to provide joy to the homeless with a simple pair of new socks. With roots in Philadelphia, the nonprofit continues to provide socks to the homeless living all across the country.Visit Site
Website for a Cause with beCaring
One of our proudest efforts is having the ability to give back to the community with a pro-bono website build each quarter. Through this program, we select a local organization that needs a website redesign, or we build a new website for them from scratch. We determine this based on the current best practices in the market and how they are showcasing their cause. Is their site mobile responsive? Does their site utilize a full-screen modern look? Is the content outdated and in need of updating? These are just some factors we consider as we award site builds to community partners.
