Doing Good Feels Good
I’m very excited. I just sent off the first draft of a Pro Bono logo design project to my non-profit clients. I sent several versions of the vertical version and the horizontal version of their special edition logo, to commemorate their 5th anniversary.
They are a youth shelter based in Oregon, serving “homeless and at-risk youth by providing shelter, educational support, mentoring and transition planning with a faith-based approach.” They collaborated with another faith-based youth group to build a community center across the street from the shelter.
I will reveal the name of the organization and the chosen logo after their big ceremony in December.
I had a little time on my hands (see my post about freelancing here) so I decided to put it to good use. I have always enjoyed volunteer work, especially with or for kids. I’m not particularly faith oriented, but I don’t disdain it either. All I care about is people who care.
I can’t wait to finish the logo for them and see it in use, and feel a sense of pride in helping them carry on their good work.
What volunteering have you done lately? Tell me in the comments!
