We love what we do at Gem PR & Media because, through our consultancy and press service, we have an opportunity to work with a number of non-profits in Springfield, USA, the Channel Islands, UK and across the globe. Either through the work our clients do and the opportunities we provide to highlight these activities or in the articles we write for magazines, newspapers or journals we feel we’re doing our bit to help spread the word.

We believe strongly in using the skills and resources we have to help those from the communities in which we operate, through our widespread media contacts, business connections and PR skills. We advise clients to do the same. If you’re a bank or large corporate perhaps a financial donation or the donation of staff time is appropriate, if you’re a physiotherapist, chiropractor or paramedic maybe you could provide your time and skills during a 5K fundraiser or if you’re in the hospitality or retail industries you could provide a product or service for a raffle or silent auction, for example.

During the past few years we’ve worked to highlight a number of charitable organizations and our involvement in Springfield’s Own Magazine has certainly helped spur this on. The ‘Positive’ section in the magazine contains features about non-profits in and around the city – all working to better the community. In just a few months we’ve met with or spoken to representatives from Cochlear Implant Awareness Foundation, Flags for Heroes, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois, Central Illinois Foodbank, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Bright Star Equestrian Center, Contact Ministries, Young Philanthropists, Girls on the Run and Sojourn Shelter and Services.

So, if you’re involved in a non-profit that you would like highlighted in SO Magazine, or you’re a business in Springfield, Guernsey, Jersey or the UK and require public relations and media support to not only highlight the work you’re doing, but also make the very most of your time and resources through your corporate social responsibility program, please contact us at hello@gemprmedia.com
