AMBASSADOR! We had to use a special font for that! The connotation of that word is so strong and serious we wanted to make sure the lettering fit!
A couple months ago, a college student reached out to us via Instagram and told us they’d like to be an Ambassador for our program. Immediately, our heads began spinning…..
We’ve been consistently trying to find ways to connect with universities more and more – there’s a wealth of talent there. We needed a way to get ahold of all types of student groups and people who can make cards in all different types of languages. We just needed someone to help get us onto campus. Someone to help introduce us. Someone to help represent our mission. Someone like….an AMBASSADOR!
As we always say, #EveryCardCounts, so, of course, the number of cards Ambassadors are able to generate in their groups will play a role in the development of our Ambassador program. Originally, we were simply going to focus on providing these levels and titles to current students, but while connecting with one of our board members, we were advised to simply open it up to EVERYBODY!
Currently, here are the three different types of ambassadors one can be and what that entails:
Growth Ambassador – one who is able to host events within the company, school or organization multiple times. Overall, that group must make at least a total of 250 cards.
Overall goal of this level is to simply get a significant amount of cards out to as many children as possible.
The distinction with this level is that not only is one helping us reach kids, but they’re also helping us spread the word by increasing the look of our website AND social media presence.
Global Ambassador – one who is able to achieve all of the Grand Ambassador qualifications, as well as, able to get their group to make cards in at least 3 different languages; as of September 2016- either English, French, Spanish, Creole or Vietnamese.
In addition, at this level Ambassadors will help us consistently reach kids in Canada, Mexico, Haiti as well as disheartened children here in the United States. Also, with consistent cards coming in, we’ll be able to reach kids across the globe during some of our special international deliveries.
We definitely understand that the majority of people who are hosting events and making cards are not simply doing it for a title, but we think you can and should be rewarded in some way. As mentioned in a prior post, Cardz for Kidz! can look good on a resume or LinkedIn profile! But whether or not you’re looking for an IMPRESSIVE TITLE, please believe that the cards you make are touching lives and making an impressive difference!
