Paying it forward

This year, we’ve had the opportunity to do some fun and meaningful pro bono work for a couple of great, local organizations.

One of the projects was for Quiet Oaks Hospice House, which holds a special place in my heart. I used to volunteer there cooking meals for the residents and their families. Then, in April, I got to experience their care firsthand when my Dad became a resident. They turned a difficult time into a beautiful and peaceful end-of-life experience for my Dad and my family.

So when their board members asked us to update the design for their annual Autumn Reflections fundraising event, we were grateful for the opportunity.

Here’s the updated design and how it played out on some of the pieces.


Another pro bono project was for Unity Spiritual Center in Sartell. Last weekend, they hosted their inaugural Charles Fillmore 5K Fun Run Walk Roll. Here’s a logo we created for the event.


Getting paid for our work is great (and necessary to stay in business). But there’s a special gratification that comes from simply being of service.  We’re grateful for the opportunity to pay it forward.
