Architecting and communicating programs with impact.
C heck out what we have been up to this summer.

Introducing  Hearst for Humanity
Hearst Magazines recently announced a new social impact initiative to rally readers and support causes that matter most to its brands and readers. Hearst for Humanity unites 21 magazines and charitable partners to raise awareness and inspire action. VP of Consumer Engagement Michelle Spinale shares more about the  Country Living and Marie Claire program launch and her work with Cause Consulting. 
Graduating from GoDaddy GoCommunities
The first cohort of budding and established small business entrepreneurs graduated from  GoDaddy GoCommunities as part of the Cedar Rapids, Iowa  pilot. Entrepreneurs participated in robust workshops, 1-1 coaching and events building their business, marketing and digital skills alongside GoDaddy employees and other local community experts. We join NBC News in congratulating these entrepreneurs! 
Feeding Your Potential 365
Providing families living in underserved communities with the knowledge, skills and confidence to choose and prepare healthy food is the objective of Aramark Feed Your Potential 365 Clubs. This core component of the Feed Your Potential 365 social impact and consumer engagement campaign extends the company's health expertise deeper into local communities.  
Rebuilding After Hurricane Harvey
The private sector's rapid response to Hurricane Harvey - first securing employee safety and then donating money to support first responders - was impressive. In our experience, keeping resources available for this next Recovery Phase is essential as this is often when companies have the biggest opportunity to put their people, product and service innovations into action. Unfortunately, the time has come to now prepare for Hurricane Irma.    
Nurturing Next Gen Talent
At Cause Consulting we love to get engaged in programs that enable young people to pursue their career sparks. For the past eight years we've joined with Youth Design to connect urban Boston teens with hands-on internships in the creative economy. Mark Feldman was proud to offer advice to this summer's graduates as they continue their paths to and through college.
