Calgary, AB CANADA — Foxied.com, an award-winning design and marketing
agency, has announced the launch of their online community geared towards
helping non-profits and bootstrapped startups. As an ongoing initiative Foxied
will be sponsoring a non-profit organization or startup each month, providing
selected organizations design and marketing services at absolutely no cost.
The sponsored startup or non-profit will receive up to $20,000 worth of design
and marketing services, including everything from a logo and website, to email
marketing services. Interested applicants must upload a 2-minute video “pitch”
to www.foxied.com/Community describing who they are and what they do.
Video submissions will then be voted on—with the top 3 videos receiving the
most votes or “Likes” advancing to the finals. Foxied will then choose the
winning organization from the remaining 3 finalists.
The Foxied community will also encourage skilled service providers (ie.
Designers, web developers, marketers) to trade or donate their services to causes
and startups they believe in.
Co-founders, Kylie Lakevold and Desere Pressey started Foxied out of their love
for “doing good”. “There are so many great causes that are doing amazing things
for the community and so many great ideas that deserve the support we can
offer”, says Desere Pressey.
“Being involved in many bootstrapped ventures and non-profit projects, we know
that they can’t always afford design and marketing services. We thought this was
a great way to start building the Foxied community and hopefully encourage
more service providers to do the same”, says Kylie Lakevold, co-founder of
