Local Collection for Supplies
C3 Church in Clayton has partnered with other local churches to collect supplies and money for Haiti. As little as a box of band aids or bottle of aspirin will make a difference. Supplies may be dropped off at the church until January 25th.
8246 Cleveland Road
Clayton, NC 27520
Collections will be accepted from 6am to 9pm daily until Monday, Jan 25th at 9pm.

Where Your Cash Donation Will Help Most
A complete list of quick links to Haiti relief organizations is here:

Text Message Donations:
Texting “Haiti” to 90999 will provide a $10 donation to the American Red Cross (www.redcross.org).
Be aware that it could take up to three months for your $10 to get to the organization — but that may not be a bad thing. While donations are pouring in now, the country will need aid for months to come and your text donation will be badly needed then. Any time lapse will in no way delay the aid being provided to Haiti by the disaster relief organization.
How Much Will Help?
Here is an idea of what your donation amount will provide:
$ 25 – provides food for a day
$ 45 – provides a survival kit for a family
$100 – provides temporary shelter
Discover is matching cardholder donations, up to $1 million. They have announced an immediate commitment of $100,000 to the American Red Cross for earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, and are pledging up to $1 million more through the cardmember matching program.
Many American corporations have also set up employee matching funds — check with your employer to see if your donation can be matched.

2009 is just about in the books. As I think about the potential and promises of 2010, I wanted to take a look back at 2009 and review the highlights of a busy and productive year. We welcomed new clients and team members into the fold, executed our first “Worst Website Ever” contest, built our blog and Twitter account (@strategicguru), let our hair down a little and prepped the business for the next step in growth. Phew!
Here are some of the Strategic Guru greatest hits from 2009:
- Our top-viewed blog posts included, not surprisingly, posts on the Worst Website Ever contests. Over 14,000 votes were logged! Congrats again to our winner, Dave of A & S. Also, our thoughts on the rules of engagement for social media also caught reader’s eyes. 2009 marked the year when social media truly was embraced by businesses of all shapes and sizes.
- The most popular article downloaded from our website was How Social Networking Will Impact Your Business. Also seeing good action were How to Gain Market Advantage in an Economic Downturn and How To Identify Your Target Market.
- We also garnered six design awards (go Janet)! Among our proudest achievements are the MarCom Platinum awards conferred for a re-branding campaign for client Fuse Graphics and work on a corporate brochure for Knowledge Vector. The PURL lead generation campaign for Piedmont Geologic earned a MarCom honorable mention.
- Head Brainstormer, Carolyn Rhinebarger, appeared at 10 different speaking engagements and addressed over 200 attendees in national webinar hosted by Training Industry. She’s also off to Amsterdam in early 2010 to lead a brainstorming session with global business leaders
- We introduced two new product offerings: CaptureClix and OnTarget, lead generation and nurturing programs to help build sales.
2010 promises to be another year of change and growth. A heartfelt thank you to our wonderful clients who we are thrilled to help. See you in the new decade!
