We brought Leighanne on board to nail down partnerships in a major initiative on a high profile issue and she was dogged in acheiving and exceeding our goals.
Yes - What Sam said!
For this project I assisted Sam with outreach to Intersections International's current donors in relation to Intersections "Ribbons of Hope" art installation project.
In completing intensive donor research, I furthered International's larger mission, compiling dossiers and assessing their giving potential.
After a few months of part-time work I was brought on full-time to assist with grantwriting; specifically on the grant that would fund an installation of "Ribbons of Hope" at the London 2012 Summer Olypmics.
Originally created to commemorate the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001, the Ribbons of Hope project was installed in Battery Park alongside the Gardens of Remembrance. New Yorkers and visitors alike were encouraged to bring their ribbons to Battery Park in lower Manhattan, thereby symbolically reversing the fear-filled path from lower Manhattan that was taken by so many New Yorkers a decade ago. There were also many ribbons and gracious volunteers on hand all weekend long to help include and assist passers-by in the activity.
