Social Responsibility

We believe in giving back to our communities, to our professions, & to the causes we believe in.

Whether it's volunteering to help clean up the National Mall for an afternoon, doing pro bono design and marketing work for local charities, or holding the annual Carousel30 food and clothing drive and local outreach efforts, we pursue causes and activities that put our skills to good use for others. We know that our talents are something that are meant to be shared with others, and we're proud of the things we've been able to accomplish with our pro bono and volunteer work.  

We also strongly believe in supporting the professional organizations that help those who are new to our fields learn more and grow in their careers. Because of this, we actively participate in industry organizations and volunteer for leadership and mentoring positions to help grow the next generation of advertisers and marketers.

In-kind and Volunteer Work

Trust for the National Mall
Carousel30 has an in-kind sponsorship with Trust for the National Mall's Annual Benefit Luncheon. Also, Carousel30 donated to its recent website project as well as helped conduct a successful Mother's Day Flower Donation marketing campaign.

Carousel30 volunteered with the National Park Service to help clean up the National Mall.

DC Ad Club (American Advertising Federation)
Carousel30 worked on the rebranding of DC Ad Club as part of an in-kind donation to the organization. 

Pro Bono Work

Furniture for Good
Carousel30 is extremely pleased to announce its sponsorship of the local organization, Furniture For Good. The company has a truly inspiring story of a young college student that wanted to help local charities. Founded by Andrew Thal, Furniture for Good accepts donated furniture and household goods, sells the items on Craigslist, and donates a percentage of the profits to fellow nonprofit partners. Read More

OurEarth.org
Carousel30 has partnered with OurEarth.org to provide probono aid in this small non-profit's online marketing, digital PR and creative assets. Founded in 2006 by students at Johns Hopkins University, OurEarth.org began with the simple idea to make it easier for the public to find environmental information. It is dedicated to bringing awareness to the public about environmental programs, activities, initiatives and grassroots efforts. OurEarth.org is led by an all-volunteer team of graduate and medical students, as well as environmental experts and leaders from around the country. Read More

Mentorship

As part of our commitment to helping young professionals in the advertising and marketing industries, we have provided mentorship through the DC Ad Club's Career Catalyst program and have provided informational interviews to the winners of the Advertising Week DC CREATE competition.

We also frequently speak to groups of students to give career advice and provide other insights about the advertising and marketing industry. We have spoken to students at Georgetown University, Virginia Tech, Westwood College and others and have participated in the American Advertising Federation Student Conference for the past two years.
