Today’s businesses are focusing more on their social impact footprint than in the past. Ultimately, cause marketing is just smart business. The Art of Fearlessly Giving Back shines a light on businesses with proactive efforts to make their community a better place.

The Art of Fearless Giving

 

Recently, on May 18, 2018, members of the public and charity supporters came together for an event at the Arizona Science Center. WebPT along with Fearlessly Deliver, 11Eleven Consulting, and the Arizona Consortium of the Arts hosted the event. The event officially began the auction of Michelle Micalizzi’s artwork to event attendees. Artwork then became available through an online auction. Proceeds from the auction benefitted 6 important charities doing work in and around Arizona. Michelle’s paintings are inspired by the stories of WebPT and their charitable partners. The collection of artwork highlights the power of connection. Especially the positive difference connectivity is having on humanity. In essence, each piece serves as a mini-documentary. In order to make each piece, Michelle took a deep interest in the subjects they feature, but the concepts are universal.
