Building a Bridge to Goodness.
During Goodstock 2014, the energetic folks at KW2 rallied through the night to help connect our community to 11 Dane County non-profit organizations. Working with each cause in mind, we created video spots, radio ads, posters and billboards to share their messages. We developed PR strategies, marketing plans, and messaging and social media tools to drum up word-of-mouth goodness around town. And best of all, we helped these non-profits put nearly $300,000 toward doing a whole lot of good for our community. Because when we put our experience to work for them, they keep their resources closer to the cause. So from the bottom of our hearts to the top of the world, we thank our Goodstockers for their good work, untiring efforts, and dedication of time. And for letting us be a part of it for 24 hours.
