Project Description

Fundraising campaigns to feed Connecticut families during the pandemic


Filling in the Blanks is a nonprofit organization that fights childhood hunger by providing meals to Connecticut families on the weekends. The goal of the 2020 end-of-year campaign was to increase local awareness for the org in Connecticut and inspire individuals and corporations to get involved and make donations by demonstrating an urgent, local need for food made worse by the pandemic.

We achieved big results — brought in new donors and blew right past the fundraising goal. Now, HelpGood is currently implementing our marketing strategy that has elevated the organization and enabled them to do even more good for CT families when they need them most.
