Hosts Fundraiser on May 18th
Fearlessly Deliver, 11Eleven Consulting & WebPT
join forces for good
PHOENIX (April 26, 2018) – Since October of 2017, Artist and Visual Journalist Michelle Micalizzi in partnership with fellow fearless entrepreneur with a heart, Tyler Butler, CEO of 11Eleven Consulting, have been trailblazi
ng an innovative campaign that is showcasing the corporate social responsibility efforts of WebPT, while simultaneously working towards a goal to raise funds for six of their charity partners.
Micalizzi, the architect of the Fearless art series and creative genius behind the works themselves, has been composing paintings inspired by the stories behind the philanthropic relationships between WebPT and their special philanthropic partners. Micalizzi is, “…excited to be working with WebPT and the six charities that Heidi Jannenga, Co-Founder and President of WebPT, has selected to champion with this project. All the organizations are doing incredible work in our community! It is an honor to get to know their leaders, their mission and to provide a platform for the good work that they are each leading.”
Jannenga explains that, “Giving back has been foundational to WebPT since our humble beginnings, and it remains one of our core values. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the support of people in our community ––our local community, business community and rehab therapy community –– and we wholeheartedly believe in paying it forward. Being a part of The Art of Fearlessly Giving Back campaign enables us to do just that through our charity partners Conscious Capitalism, PT Day of Service, Support My Club, The Arizona Science Center Girls in STEAM initiative United Blood Services, and the Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue. This program also illustrates the impact of philanthropy and the role businesses play in growing their communities and elevating humanity.”
On May 18th WebPT, along with Fearlessly Deliver, 11Eleven Consulting and Arizona Consortium for the Arts, will host a fundraiser bringing this campaign to fruition through an event that will support the important charity partners who have benefitted from the company’s altruistic deeds. Hosted at the Arizona Science Center’s Create Space, the art work created by artist Michelle Micalizzi will be auctioned and offered to event attendees, with a portion of proceeds going back to help these causes, thus continuing the cycle of making positive progress for society. Select work will remain on display at the Create space through June 1st. Starting bid prices and retail store resources will be available on opening day.
This social practice art project utilizes visual journalism to tell stories using video, writing and painting. The paintings and art work are a creative byproduct of the project, but in its totality the social impact of the project is so much more. The AoFGB is a full circle drip campaign based on collaboration and showcases the power of partnership in our community.
The event is open to the public and is being heavily supported by the charities that will benefit from this innovative and engaging campaign. “Our values are certainly in line with the AoFGB, in that we love bringing positive moments to organizations and professionals through giving back,” shares Josh D’Angelo co-founder of PT Day of Service. Efosa Guobadia, CEO at Move Together and creator of PT Day of Service explains, “The support from WebPT has meant so much to the Global PT Day of Service initiative. Their passion, drive, and heart have been integral and catalyzing to this movement since day one. We look forward to continuing to partner with them to positively and palpably affect one community at a time around the world.”
Giving in a variety of ways is the hallmark of a truly great corporate citizenship program and WebPT has showcased a plethora of avenues in which they give back. Support My Club Founder and CEO, Amy Armstrong, is particularly grateful for the diverse methods of support that her non-profit has received. “WebPT has been a longtime supporter of the work we do at Support My Club –– not only financially, but with their staff time and talent as well. Their cultural component “Do Mas With Menos” is one that resonates with our small startup’s everyday mentality and actions. Having the expertise of their employees in business growth, SEO, Human Resources, and team culture has allowed our non-profit to quickly advance and learn hands-on without having to spend monetarily on third-party contracts. They are true champions of community involvement at all levels!”
This campaign is ultimately highlighting the power of connectivity in making a positive difference for humanity. “Having the pleasure of supporting Michelle of Fearlessly Deliver on this project has been such a great opportunity to connect directly with the community in a grassroots type method. And through our partnership with WebPT, Michelle and I will have the distinct honor of showcasing the culture of giving back built by the company’s founder, Heidi Jannenga,” shares Tyler Butler, CEO of 11Eleven Consulting.
WebPT is a prime example of a business that operates with a conscious and together with Fearlessly Deliver; their good deeds will be shared not only in Arizona, but also in the greater U.S. and abroad. Through this full circle campaign, business and community missions will join forces for good. Chevy Humphrey, the Hazel A. Hare President and CEO of Arizona Science Center asserted, “Socially responsible companies like WebPT and projects like The Art of Fearlessly Giving Back play a big role in promoting a culture of philanthropy within our community.” Hare also added, “Community participation is critical to the success of non-profit organizations. Saying yes to this project was a no-brainer for us.”
