There are a lot of good organizations that can really make an impact, and as we have grown we have taken on more because we believe we can help them gain valuable publicity for their causes
Tampa Bay, Fla. (PRWEB) March 26, 2012
While many non-profits continue to struggle to forge their way in a dampened economy, JoTo Extreme PR, a national PR Firm headquartered in Tampa Bay, fosters charities. Since JoTo Extreme PR’s inception, CEO Karla Jo Helms and President Diane D. Stein have been lending a helping hand to non-profits in their local community. The two veteran Public Relations pros decided to set up a division within their company, separate from their paid client campaigns, with the purpose of handling pro-bono work for non-profit organizations that provide programs and services that benefit the public.
“Because we are a growing company, we were limited in the number of non-profits that we were able to help with PR,” says Karla Jo Helms, CEO and Founder of JoTo PR. “There are a lot of good organizations that can really make an impact, and as we have grown we have taken on more because we believe we can help them gain valuable publicity for their causes.”
Through JoTo’s pro bono work non-profit groups have raised more funds, seen more attendance to their events and raised media awareness for their efforts. Some of these groups include:
- American Cancer Society — Relay For Life
- Boys and Girls Clubs of the Suncoast
- Bright House’s Clearwater Super Boats National Championship Festival
- Clearwater Downtown Partnership
- Clearwater for Youth
- Florida Human Rights Walkathon
- Humane Society of Pinellas County
- Sunscreen Film Festival
- Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance
“I have seen first-hand how PR campaigns have brought awareness and assisted non-profits raise badly-needed funds,” stated Diane D. Stein, President and Co-Owner of JoTo PR. “We always pay our good fortune forward – and we believe that giving back is part of our overall success.”
JoTo PR does not discriminate against organizations on the basis of religion or cause, as long the non-profit has an aim to better the world; however, there is a limited number of non-profit slots available per year. Applications for non-profits to request help can be acquired by emailing A. Kaplan at [email protected].
