As a third-year veteran of Creating Change, I can honestly say this is always a crazy day – crazy inspiring, crazy exhausting, crazy busy and crazy fun. Not only is it a great creative exercise to think outside of my normal day job and work on a project for one of our nonprofit partners, it’s always an awesome experience to work with some of the other talented Discovery employees that I don’t always interact with on a day-to-day basis. I always complete Creating Change with a newfound respect for my creative, smart and giving colleagues here at Discovery Communications.
Thursday and Friday marked the third annual Creating Change probono marathon, resulting in the completion of 32 different projects for 25 nonprofit partners, with deliverables ranging from print ads, to PSAs, to IT assessments. Hours of hard work during Thursday’s marathon culminated in successful presentations across the board on Friday, ending the week with a job well-done!
