How Can VoiceQuilt Partner With Non-Profits?
I’m attending Stanford Business School’s Social Innovator Showcase today. The event will celebrate a subset of graduates who have worked in non-profits or have created social enterprise firms. Many have achieved impressive results by creating partnerships with non-profits, corporations and government.
At VoiceQuilt, we’re focused on helping families celebrate a loved one with voice-based toasts, tributes and favorite memories. Although we’re traditionally focused on happy events, we know that VoiceQuilt messages can be a powerful tool for families under stress – either because a loved one is sick or deployed overseas. A playlist of favorite memories, encouraging words and music reminds a deployed soldier that they are not forgotten. The VoiceQuilt becomes a virtual cheering squad, an emotional reminder of how much a soldier is loved, appreciated and missed.
Similarly, “Get well” VoiceQuilts provide comfort to those in pain. Some are serious prayer chains; others are intended to make the patient laugh. Either way, VoiceQuilt allows a group to provide emotional support during a difficult time.
We love the idea of working with more military and get well families. As a result, I’m looking for inspiration from these amazing Stanford men and women. How can VoiceQuilt partner with non-profits focused on these families? In the process of creating these VoiceQuilts, can we help raise funds for these non-profit organizations?
Should be a thought stimulating day. Wish me luck!
