CC Kicks Off The Box Effect

CC Kicks Off The Box Effect

Graphic design firm Christiansen Creative (CC) is launching a business community initiative called The Box Effect during the 2014 holiday season. The inaugural campaign’s goal is to collect donated resources that easily fit into boxes for Turningpoint for Victims of Domestic and Sexual Violence, in River Falls. A secondary goal is to help organizations that may not have access to marketing support gain community awareness. With Turningpoint’s growing goals and much-needed services, the CC team unanimously agreed to support the nonprofit with The Box Effect in 2014.

The idea is to inspire 99 other businesses to fill a box with needed items, designated this year by Turningpoint’s Executive Director, Alena Taylor. The items are listed online at www.TheBoxEffect.com. The Box Effect will benefit 100 families transitioning from the shelter to new homes.

“We have a strong history of helping the community and promoting positive change — but now we want to take it to the next level and do even more, collaboratively with our business neighbors,” said Tricia Christiansen, CC creative director and founder, “We’re excited to be able to offer this support to Turningpoint and make an even bigger difference in our area.”

To learn more about The Box Effect and how to request a box, visit www.TheBoxEffect.com.
