Stop Guilting Your Audience to Give

Inspire them with Stories that Connect them to Your Purpose

That’s where I come in.

Working together let’s craft powerful stories that bring your brand to life. 

Your powerful stories can…

    • inspire your audience to join you in the journey
    • move your audience to support your cause
    • show the world your impact

Your stories aren’t in your P&L – they are in your people.

Projections. Fundraising. Donations. 

You probably hear these terms in presentations every single day, but this isn’t who you are. You are so much more than your data.

You are the organization that. . .

        • helped Ezra bring clean water to his village
        • funded Anjelina’s classroom after it was destroyed by the hurricane
        •  created safe houses for women at the border

Let’s tell your story!


Brand storytelling is one of the most powerful investments you can make as an organization.

Psychologist Jerome Bruner found people are 22 times more likely to remember details in stories rather than in facts and numbers.

Stanford University professor Chip Heath asked students to give one-minute speeches on non-violent crime. Most students presented data – about 2.5 statistics per speech. Only one student in 10 told a story. When Heath polled the students 10 minutes later, 63% remembered the stories, while only 5% could remember a single statistic.

A study in the Harvard Business Review found emotional connections are significant drivers of brand loyalty. They are also one of the best indicators of future customer value.

But how to choose the story that will make the biggest impact, and move your people into action, whether it’s donations, sponsorships, or brand loyalty.
