We are thrilled to announce that Rock Paper Simple won a Gold Angel Award in the category of Fundraising & Events for our 2019 Galactic Fundraiser collateral material!
The Angel Award Competition
The Angel Award Competition is conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation Fourth District to honor the best in public service advertising. The purpose of the competition combines the organization’s two missions; the first being to utilize industry expertise to address community issues, and the second to celebrate and honor advertising excellence.
The 2020 Angel Award Competition was open to all advertising service providers, public service organizations, and special interest groups located in both Florida and the Caribbean. We are extremely honored here at Rock Paper Simple to have been a part of this event and are grateful our 2019 Galactic Fundraiser’s collateral material was selected for a Gold Angel Award!
The Galactic Fundraiser Event
The 2019 Galactic Fundraiser was held last December as a fun, effective way to raise awareness and funds for Family Promise of Brevard’s “You’re the Key” campaign — a campaign that addressed family homelessness in our country. All money raised directly funded short-term case management and financial assistance for families in need.
The collateral material we made for the Galactic Fundraiser included postcard invitations, print and digital advertisements, event tickets, signage, and even silent auction labels. We also created social media campaigns to drive traffic to the event’s website and provided sponsorship opportunities for local businesses.
One of Rock Paper Simple’s core values is community. As such, we loved putting together the Galactic Fundraiser to support an important cause. While it’s awesome to have received the Gold Angel Award, the real win was raising over $20,000 for the “You’re the Key” campaign, which in turn, helped keep 100 Brevard County children safely housed with their families!
