Seeking Good People Doing Good Work

Are you ready to use your skills and experience to make a real difference? In both a brand's performance and the world around us?

Our agency is looking for key talent in account management and creative to join our entrepreneurial team in Dallas, Central Coast CA, and NYC.

At Causemedia Group we create engagement that drives interaction with brands, builds millions of consumer advocates, and raises awareness and money for charitable causes. We’re a 10 year old cause marketing platform company offering a full suite of services from consulting to traditional creative to social media through our family of agencies: patron (integrated cause marketing), StudioGood (digital and social media), Kompolt (eBay charity auctions), and WhatGives!? (non-profit fundraising tools). We partner with other agencies and work directly with brands such as eBay, UNICEF, Food Network, Bloomingdales, Grammy Foundation, and Best Buy. We recently won the Mashable Award for Most Creative Social Good Campaign for Twitchange and our work has been profiled twice in The New York Times: for Check-in For Charity presented by Microsoft and PayPal, and for Fatburger.

Account Manager: positions available in Dallas and NYC. Digital, social media and promotions experience required. Interest or experience in cause marketing a plus. Ability to work in a fast moving, fluid, and collaborative dynamic essential. Ideal candidate is a mix of right brain/left brain and both a thinker and a doer. Role is somewhere in between a Sr. AE and Supervisor level at a traditional agency. Personalty and cultural fit take precedent over pedigree.

Web Developer: positions available in San Luis Obispo, Dallas, and NYC. See full job description here: http://www.causemediagroup.com/jobs.html

Big D Superbowl of Service

Not exactly the way the Cowboys envisioned it, but they and the greater Dallas area are hosting the Superbowl this year at Jerryworld. No matter what teams make it to the Big Game, the community is who really wins through the many service projects that happen every year when the ultimate game comes to town.

A sampling:

The Athletes in Action/Bart Starr Award was created to honor the NFL player who best exemplifies outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community: http://www.superbowlbreakfast.com/award.aspx

PepsiCo's Taste of The NFL is a Super Bowl party with a purpose! This over-the-top food and wine extravaganza brings together the country’s top chefs as well as current and alumni NFL players to represent each NFL city. Super Bowl XLV will mark the Taste of the NFL’s 20th year raising money and awareness for hunger relief. All net proceeds are contributed to food banks in the surrounding region. Taste’s goal is to raise $1 million in net revenue to be allocated to North Texas food pantries and to food banks in all 32 NFL cities. http://tasteofthenfl.com/superbowl.html

16th Annual Rebuilding Together Project enables volunteers to work side-by-side with NFL greats and local community leaders to refurbish and revitalize about 20 homes in desperate need of repair.

Came across this yesterday and was struck by it's brilliance and brevity.
