This has been a challenging year to say the least but we pushed through it together and found ways to stay safe while still staying connected. We met some of your kids, cats and dogs. We had coffee together while in the comfort of a zoom meeting. We laughed at the virtual backgrounds, the PJ's, the social media memes but we also shared some pretty serious moments during some pretty scary times.
As 2021 approaches, we are looking back on our past 12 months as a company and creative community. We want to share some accomplishments with you and reflect on some of the work that we've done together. We are happy to partner with you and each of these organizations, and are continually thankful to have the opportunity to collaborate with such good people who are interested in making the world a better place.
Now let's take a look back at what we accomplished together in 2020!
Let's start with our Virtual Holiday Gathering...
This December, we hosted our Virtual Holiday Gathering and were able to sit and talk at different virtual tables, listen to piano music from Mike Skory in the piano lounge, spin a prize wheel to win surprises and watch the 2020 MessageMakers video recap and presentation. Thank you to all of those who attended. And for those that weren't able to click in, you'll have plenty of opportunity in 2021 to check out the new customized virtual event platform that we have been using. Happy Holidays!
We produced a video series with AARP Michigan to encourage voting and empower voters in the 2020 Election to ensure everyone's voice is and will always be heard. Check out one of our videos here.
AARP Home for the Holidays
We produced Home for the Holidays, a virtual cooking show with Paula Cunningham and Chef Tommy FitzGerald from Grand Rapids!
Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce Virtual Economic Club
We are proud to be the Official AV and Video Production partner for LRCC. This year, we helped produce many virtual Economic Clubs with speakers such as psychologist Dr. John H. Braccio, PH.D., Kirk Ray, President and CEO at McLaren Greater Lansing, former Congressman Mike Rogers, Craig Allen, President US-China Business Council and many more.

Access for All - Conference 2020
We recently completed virtual event design, planning, pre-production and live-stream production for Access for All 2020. Structured with a mix of live and asynchronous activities across 2 weeks in October, AfA2020 was a virtual conference dedicated to using plain language to break down barriers in society, improve the criminal justice system, protect the rights of vulnerable populations and affect the outcome of COVID-19.

Michigan Education Trust (MET)
Working with our friends at Gud Marketing, we produced a virtual town hall for the Michigan Education Trust College Savings Strategy Session. MET helps you save on college tuition by buying college credits at today's price. MET allows parents, grandparents, businesses and others to pre-purchase undergraduate tuition for a child residing in Michigan at any Michigan public university or college, including 28 public community colleges.

We were honored as a COVID-19 Business Hero by CORP! Magazine. As COVID-19 came about, our team discussed what we could do for our community in order to keep people connected. Check out our team video here.
