GiveNOLA Day! Tuesday, May 5th 2015
GiveNOLA Day is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to ignite the giving community in Southeast Louisiana. The goal is to inspire the community to come together for 24 hours to contribute as many charitable dollars as possible to support the work of local nonprofit organizations. Last year’s event raised $2.2 million from 19,000+ donors across the nation. This year, we hope to do even more! GiveNOLA Day is based on other successful giving days hosted by community foundations across the country.
It will be from 12:00:01 a.m. to 11:59:59 p.m. on May 5, 2015. All event-related donations must be made online during the 24-hour period.
Thanks to Jared Harris!
During his participation within the Google Community Leaders program, Jared was a member of the marketing team where he did photography for Google CLP events, he designed flyers for Google CLP events, he managed their social media pages through Google plus G+ and twitter.
He provided High Voltage with photography, social media and graphic services for GiveNOLA Day 2014! He also helped train the New Orleans community as well as business owners on how to use Google tools such as, G mail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, and Google Analytics. One of his greatest achievements was assisting with the marketing team in forming the first Google Business Group in the U.S.
Not only did Jared excel in the classroom, but he was also an active leader in many organizations. As a member of Dillard University American Marketing Association (AMA), he was instrumental in successfully creating a clothing line to highlight the organization. Jared credits his leadership in this challenge to his participation in the Google Community leaders program (CLP).
Currently Jared is now the Social Media Specialist at Nissan of New Orleans where he also is responsible for graphic design, photography, and managing reviews for the dealership. Jared has recently started his business, Create Your Own Path, which provides freelance graphic and web designs, social media, videography and photography to local business owners. High Voltage, Inc. looks forward to having Jared volunteer social media assistance with GiveNOLA Day 2015!
In January High Voltage participated in the Jefferson Community Health Care Center Open Enrollment Drives in River Ridge and Marrero, Louisiana. We provided Shea products as door prizes and provided Bags of Hope to the Homeless.
Thanks for providing Thanksgiving Dinner to youth in foster care at Rain Tree Chilren and Family Services.
