Halibut Blue Offering Free Support to Regional Nonprofits April 7, 2020 A full-service branding, advertising, and website development agency is offering its services free to regional nonprofits during the COVID-19 pandemic. Halibut Blue is promoting its initiative on social media using the hashtag #halibuthelps. “We saw that a number of 501(c)(3) organizations are struggling with loss of financial support because of physical distancing and increasing unemployment. Sometimes it results in staff layoffs, cancellation of fundraising events, and reduced services,” explains Michael McLaughlin, a partner at Halibut Blue. Chris Kuhar, also a partner at Halibut Blue, said many nonprofits don’t have the benefit of a marketing communications team to help them in these difficult times and cannot afford to pay for an agency. “We believe in giving back to the communities where we live and work,” he said. “Offering services for free to qualified organizations during this time is the best way for us to help.” To participate in the #halibuthelps program, please contact Mr. McLaughlin at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mr. Kuhar at email@example.com.
