I support this small but mighty charity to expand the reach of their innovative grocery gift card program that empowers food-insecure children and families across Calgary. Key projects include updating the language and layout of their website, authoring
blog posts, designing and analyzing evaluation surveys, grant writing, and recommending, developing, and editing content for their annual impact report, case for support, presentation slide decks, online charity profiles, and donor communication materials.
As a young charity focused on innovation and impact, it was critical for us to establish a robust suite of communications collateral that was engaging, informative, and would inspire meaningful change in the community. We quickly learned that Donald's copywriting and copyediting were critical skills when crafting compelling content in a timely manner to target a variety of messages to a diverse set of stakeholders. And by diverse, I am referring to frontline agency partners, donors, social media followers, potential funders, government bodies, granting agencies, other charities,
the recipients of our program, and the general public.
Over the past year, Donald has navigated this challenge with ease and his services have freed up a massive amount of my time and energy so I can focus on fundraising, relationship building, and expanding our program. I completely trust Donald to compose language that represents our charity with a high level of integrity, authenticity, and professionalism. I highly recommend his services to any business that values the support of an engaging consultant who consistently meets deadlines, manages multiple projects seamlessly, and responds to unexpected changes effortlessly.

I Can for Kids Foundation
I collaborate with this cybersecurity training program operated by the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences at the University of Toronto.
The program offers all students career and advising services to facilitate job searches and employment. I provide resume training and resume audits to participants who struggle to finesse language and tone, ensure compliance with applicant tracking systems, and select a format that best showcases their skills and talent based on the stage of their career.
All our participants commend Donald's insightful and practical guidance along with his upbeat and approachable interpersonal style. Donald is also very flexible, responsive, and collaborative with program staff as we navigate the best way to integrate his services into our education. We’re very excited to continue our partnership with Donald to help optimize every cohort's professional growth and success.
