PRLog - Jul. 13, 2011 - WINTER PARK, Fla. -- Nick Nanton, Esq. and JW Dicks, Esq. Founders of Marketers For Good, are pleased to announce that the charitable organization has been granted tax exemption by the IRS with a 501(c)(3) status. The IRS describes this status as follows:
To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.
Drawing upon the expertise of the top international marketing minds of our time, Marketers For Good is a not for profit organization dedicated to creating unique launch campaigns to raise money and awareness for charitable causes. Utilizing cutting edge marketing strategies, MFG brings together top marketing and business minds in order to encourage and lift up those in need.
The culmination of a brainstorm between Nick Nanton, The Celebrity Lawyer, and public relations expert Bill Harrison, Marketers For Good began with a simple question about how the two could tap their networks in order to help others and give back. Drawing upon their vast network of marketing experts, the two set out, along with a few friends, to create viral campaigns that raise awareness and money for great causes.
Marketers For Good is constantly seeking new supporters who are interested in giving back and using their ability to raise money for important causes.
The Advisory Board for Marketing For Good consists of Nick Nanton, , Darrin Mish, and Dr. Scott Schumann.
Marketing For Good’s latest project, an inspirational short film documentary, “Jacob’s Turn,” (http://www.JacobsTurn.com) was recently honored to receive two Emmy® Award nominations. “Jacob’s Turn” received a nomination in the Human Interest – News category, while Nick Nanton and Co-Director Amardeep Kaleka received a nomination in the Director – Short Form category.
Jacob’s Turn is a mother’s story of Jacob Titus, her four-year-old boy from the small rural community of Floyds Knobs, Indiana. Jacob loves to play T-ball, like thousands of kids across the country. Jacob also happens to have Down Syndrome. The film shows how Jacob’s “turn” at bat and on the field was a thrill for him, but more importantly, an event that transformed the hearts of everyone in his town. The script for the short film is based on Patricia Titus’ essay she wrote and submitted to the local newspaper.
As Executive Producers, Nick Nanton and JW Dicks worked with their extended network of marketing experts to create awareness of “Jacob’s Turn,” through a method of marketing that is usually applied to commercial ventures, but for the first time was used to launch a charitable campaign - one which will help benefit children not only with Down Syndrome but a wide variety of special needs. The goal of everyone with an emotional and financial investment in the film is to raise people’s awareness and generate charitable donations that will help these kids receive the assistance they need to lead the best lives they can—to get their “turn.”
